Hue is a web interface for Hadoop, and a platform for building custom applications with a rich framework. The 1.2.0 is a minor release, largely focused on bug fixes and compatibility with the upcoming release of Cloudera’s Distribution for Apache Hadoop 3, beta 4.

Notable Changes and Caveats

Notable changes:

  • Upgraded Django to 1.2

  • Many HueChart improvements and bug fixes

  • Upgraded included Hive from 0.5 to 0.7

  • Beeswax no longer leaks file descriptors

  • Renamed all JavaScript references of "CCS" to "Hue"

Caveats:

  • Hue 1.2.0 only works with CDH3b4 or newer. CDH2 and earlier versions of CDH3 will not work.

  • The included version of Hive has been upgraded from 0.5 to 0.7. This version of Hive has changed the format for the metastore. Upgrading Hue 1.2 will require you to upgrade your metastore version using the upgrade scripts included with Hive.
