New in this Release

This release of Apache Hive includes the following behavior change that is specific to MapR:
Flexible HiveServer2 Authentication Support
When the cluster is secure, HiveServer2 accepts both MAPR-SASL and PAM for in-bound authentication. This allows a single instance of HiveServer2 to accept both MapR-SASL authentication from Hue and PAM authentication from JDBC/ODBC connections.

For details on the features available in the open source version of this component, see the Hive 1.0 changelog or the Apache Hive 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.
