The Apache Tez team is proud to announce the first release of Apache Tez – version 0.2.0-incubating.
Apache Tez is an application framework which allows for a complex directed-acyclic-graph of tasks for processing data and is built atop Apache Hadoop YARN. You can learn much more from our Tez blog series tracked here.
Since entering the Apache Incubator project in late February of 2013, there have been over 400 tickets resolved, culminating in this significant release. We would like to thank all the contributors that made this release possible. The release bits are available at: http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/incubator/tez/tez-0.2.0-incubating/.
The Apache Hive and Apache Pig projects are also progressing well towards making the necessary changes to evolve their execution engine from just being on top of MapReduce to also work atop Tez. To follow their work, you can look at the HIVE-4660 and PIG-3446 JIRA tickets respectively.
