Commit Date (YYYY-MM-DD) Comment
bfd4ba9 2016-10-28 MAPR-24456: The issue that caused illustrate query to fail in Pig, when used with MRv1, is now fixed. Pig now includes different pig-core JAR files for MRv1 and Yarn and it will dynamically choose the necessary JAR based on the cluster's mode.
dfcdfbe 2016-09-13 PIG-5019: The issue that caused Pig to generate lots of warnings for UDF with warnings aggregation enabled is now fixed.
0194066 2016-09-01 MAPR-24442: The issue that caused grunt shell to not work in classic mode is now fixed. For running MRv1 in Hadoop2, Pig will not use the improved logging available with Pig 0.16.
cb921bb 2016-08-04 MAPR-24080: The issue that caused Pig jobs with Oozie to go into an indefinite loop when there was no JobTracker installed on a YARN-only cluster is now fixed.
