Hue 3 and the new Sqoop and ZooKeeper apps are out!

Hi Big Data Surfers,

The Hue team is pleased to bring you Hue 3.0, available as a tarball release.

Please see the release notes for more information and the documentation.

Hue 3.0 brings a browser for ZooKeeper and 245 commits. The tech stack was upgraded and a new phase of redesign was performed in order to improve the UX.

Notable Features

  • Sqoop 

    With the Sqoop 2 application data from databases can be easily exported or imported into HDFS in a scalable way. The Job Wizard hides the complexity of creating Sqoop jobs and the dashboard offers a live progress and log access.image

  • ZooKeeper 

    Navigate and browse the Znode hierarchy and content of a Zookeeper cluster. Znodes can be added, deleted and edited.
    Multi-clusters are supported and their various statistics are available.image

  • Shell app is removed and replaced by Pig Editor, HBase Browser and the Sqoop apps. 
  • Python 2.6 is required. 
  • Beeswax daemon is replaced by HiveServer2. 

Notable Fixes

  • HUE-897 [core] Redesign of the overall layout
  • HUE-1521 [core] Improve JT HA
  • HUE-1493 [beeswax] Replace Beeswaxd by HiveServer2
  • HUE-1474 [core] upgrade django from 1.2 to 1.4
  • HUE-1506 [search] Impersonation support
  • HUE-1475 [core] Switch back from spawning server


Thank you for all the bugs, suggestions, and feedback and stay tuned, a few major changes could not make it to 3.0 but will land soon!
