Commit Date (YYYY-MM-DD) Comment
684b09a91 2016-08-18 MAPR-24275: The issue causing a query on hive to fail with an IllegalStateException is now fixed.
4a60eb1db 2016-08-12 MAPR-24248: The isNonLocalScratchDirUsed in getLocalScratchDir() method is now set to false to allow operations with scratch directories to use the local file system instead of the MapR file system.
e4f49cc398 2016-08-10 HIVE-11617: The issue causing explain job to (sometimes) not finish or be very slow when there are many lateral views is now fixed.
3fcf5367 2016-07-16 MAPR-23970: When running a query, checks are now included to determine if current file system is non-local before running getScratchDir() method, which assumes the file system is not local.
d854ef03 2015-11-03 HIVE-12206: Hive no longer throws an exception when Kryo's classloader is set without the UDF jar.
