New in this Release

This is the initial release of Hive 1.0 for the MapR distribution for Hadoop. In addition to Hive 1.0 features, this release includes the following features:

  • MapR-SASL Support

    On secure MapR clusters, MapR-SASL is supported and configured by default for HiveServer2 and HiveMetastore. Previously, Simple SASL was the default and authentication had to be configured manually.

  • Hive Scratch Directory Changes

    By default, the Hive scratch directory is created in the same volume as the target table (hive.optimize.insert.dest.volume=true). Previously, hive.optimize.insert.dest.volume was set to false.

  • WebHCat Changes
    • The default WebHCat log directory is now /opt/mapr/hive/<hive-version>/logs/<username>/webhcat. Previously, it was /tmp/<username>/webhcat.
    • WebHCat is now managed by Warden. The warden.hcat.conf file is installed with the mapr-hive package.
  • JDBC SASL QOP Parameter Changes

    When you need to connect via JDBC to hiveserver2 using the SASL QOP parameter, use salsQop instead of sals.qop.

Important: The Hive 1.0 cost-based optimization is a beta feature and is not fully supported.


This release by MapR includes the following patches on the base Apache release. For complete details, refer to the commit log for this project in GitHub.
