Product release

Elasticsearch for Apache Hadoop 5.0.0-alpha3

​I am excited to announce the release of Elasticsearch for Apache Hadoop (aka ES-Hadoop) 5.0.0-alpha3 built against Elasticsearch 5.0.0-alpha3.

IMPORTANT: This is an alpha release and is intended for testing purposes only. Indices created in this version will not be compatible with Elasticsearch 5.0.0 GA.

What's new?

Upgrade to Storm 1.x

Since ES-Hadoop 5.0.0-alpha3, the Storm support has been upgraded to 1.0.x. As this version is not backwards compatible with Storm 0.9.x, support for these versions had to be dropped. (Do note that one can still use Storm 0.9.x with ES-Hadoop 2.x accordingly.)

Changelog layout

The release changelog is now aligned closer to that of Elasticsearch proper.


Please [download] ES-Hadoop 5.0.0-alpha3, try it out and let us know what you think on Twitter, GitHub, or in the forum.
