New in This Release

This is the initial release of Hue Version 3.7 for the MapR Distribution for Apache Hadoop.

It includes the following features in addition to those listed in the release notes for Version 3.7:

  • With Hbase 0.98.7 or above, the Hbase Browser displays the MapR file system directories and MapR Database tables. For more information, see MapR's Hue documentation for Managing MapR Database Tables in Hue 3.x.
  • With MapR 4.0.2 or above, Hue supports MapR-SASL security with JobTracker. For more information, see MapR's Hue documentation to Configure Hue to use MapR-SASL.
Note: This version of Hue does not support Sentry.

Patches

  • MapR-17314:When you run Hue 3.7 with a Hadoop version that is less than 2.5.1, the Job Browser hangs if you attempt to kill running YARN applications from the Job Browser window. This issue occurs with MapR version 4.0.1 as it uses Hadoop 2.4.1.
  • MapR-17229: The HBase examples provided in Hue 3.7 will not load in HBase 0.94.x because HBase 0.94.x uses a different thrift version than Hue 3.7.
  • MapR-17533: You cannot view task logs in the Job Browser when you run Hue 3.7 with a secure MapR cluster. Instead, you can view the task logs in the hadoop user logs directory (/opt/mapr/hadoop/hadoop-<version>/logs/userlogs).
