Elasticsearch for Apache Hadoop 6.3.0 Released

By James Baiera

​I am excited to announce the release of Elasticsearch for Apache Hadoop (aka ES-Hadoop) 6.3.0 built against Elasticsearch 6.3.0.

What’s new?

Spark 2.3 Support

Starting in 6.3.0, we now support up to the most recent Spark 2.3 release. It should be noted that Spark 2.3 does not support Scala 2.10 any longer. In order to maintain compatibility, we will continue to release 2.10 artifacts that support up to Scala 2.2.

Bug Fixes

Spring is in the air and nothing feels more refreshing than cleaning things up. Landing in 6.3.0 is a whole bucketload of bug fixes. This updates focus primarily on issues in our serialization code, with solutions to a handful of problems dealing with array data types, nested data, and field filtering. You can read up about all the fixes in the release notes.

We’re always excited to hear from our users! If you have any feedback, questions about this release, or any other topics, we’d love to chat with you on our forums.
