Release Notes

January 2018

  • The VirtualBox and VMWare releases of the HDF sandox had their OS-level packages updated, including a version update of Docker from 17.09 to 17.12.
  • A patch was applied to the released VMs which updated them to the 4.14.14-1 kernel to address the Meltdown/Spectre vulnerability.
  • The VirtualBox and VMWare releases were reduced to a total size of about 10.4 GB. As a result, a loading splash page will show up on first boot while the sandbox is decompressed and set up.
  • Minor splash page typo fixes.

These services mentioned in "Services In Maintenance Mode" are not at all there. (I spent several hours with docker version of HDF sandbox to find it out that in Ambari there is no these services) You should NOT download HDF 3.1.0 Sandbox if you are planning to do those tutorials Truck iot etc :-(. People are asking this, but unfortunately you should use HDP only I think. (I think you should have only one package to download)
