New in this Release

This MapR release of Hive 0.13 includes the following behavior changes:

  • HiveServer2 Authentication Changes (Available for MapR cluster version 4.1 and above)

    On secure MapR clusters, MapR-SASL is not longer the default for HiveServer2. Instead, HiveServer2 uses PAM by default.

  • WebHCat Changes

    The warden.hcat.conf file is no longer installed with mapr-hive package. Instead, it is installed with the mapr-hivewebhcat package.
