Hue 4.1 is out!

Hue 4.1 is out!

Hi Big Data Explorers,

 

The Hue Team is glad to thanks all the contributors and release Hue 4.1! hue-logo (copy)

The focus of this release was to keep making progress on the modernization and simplification of the Hue 4 UI without introducing any major feature. The SQL editor is smarter and the ground for better speed and visualizations was prepared (coming in the next release). This release is more of a “quality/transition”  with 900 commits and 250+ bug fixes! Go grab the tarball and give it a spin!

    Hi,
    the tarball download link seems to be exactly the same as for version 4.0. 1. Is this the right link/file?
    thanks

    Is it possible to run both Hue 4.1 along with Cloudera Hue with CDH 5.8 or earlier version..?

      APIs with Hadoop services should be pretty compatible since 5.4, but this is not really tested.

    Impressive enhancements, thanks! Can a HUE 4.1 be pointed to an existing HUE3 database (a copy of) or a migration is needed?

      Some DB migrations might be needed, depending on how old is your Hue 3 even if none were added recently:

      ./build/env/bin/hue migrate
