New in this Release

This release of Apache Oozie includes the following behavior change that is specific to MapR:

  • Whenever you upgrade or get the latest Oozie package, you must update the shared libraries on the MapR file system. When you restart Oozie, the shared libraries are no longer automatically updated unless you change the cluster MapReduce mode or the default sharedlib directory (/oozie/share/) does not exist. See MapR's Oozie upgrade documentation for details.

For details on the features available in the open source version of this component, see the Apache Oozie 4.2.0 changelog or the Apache Oozie project homepage.


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