New in This Release

Important: The Pig-0.16 MEP-6.3.0 release is designed to work with Hive-2.3.6 MEP-6.3.0 and contains a fix that adds com.mapr.web.security.SslConfig class to Pig classpath. This fix allows Pig-0.16 MEP-6.3.0 to be successfully integrated with Hive-2.3.6 MEP-6.3.0 when HCatalog is used. If you use Hive-2.3.6 MEP-6.3.0 with older Pig-0.16 releases, this may cause an exception when HCatalog is used:
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: 
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:424)
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:357)
