Hello CDH and Impala Users,

We are pleased to announce the release of Hive ODBC v2.5.15 and Impala JDBC v2.5.28.

Hive ODBC v2.5.15 contains bug fixes and the following enhancements:

  • Two-way SSL verification

  • Custom HTTP headers

  • SSL and Thrift transport protocol now configured separately from authentication

  • Support for saving passwords as encrypted strings in the Windows Registry

Impala ODBC 2.5.28 contains bug fixes and the following enhancements:

  • Driver configuration option for enabling or disabling connections to SSL-enabled servers that use self-signed certificates

  • Ability to configure SSL separately from authentication

  • Option for configuring SASL when using username and password authentication


These drivers work for versions of HiveServer2 in CDH 4.1 or higher and Impala 1.0 or higher. Previous drivers continue to work on the latest versions of HiveServer2 and Impala.
