Hi Big Data Munchers,


The Hue Team is glad to release Hue 3.8 and its improved Oozie Editor and better performances!

A new Spark REST Job Server with a Notebook UI are also appearing in a Beta version for all the eager Spark developers that would like to give it a try.

A tarball is available as well as documentation and release notes. This release is a big step forwards and comes with more than 1000 commits!





If you built custom apps, follow the upgrade guide!


Here is a summary of the main improvements (got on the 3.8 blog for more details):



New Editor (edit mode)




  • Easy way to differentiate workflows submitted manually or by coordinators
  • Sub-workflow links to corresponding workflows and logs
  • Update end time of coordinator
  • Hive jobs ids are visible


See more details about the Editor and Dashboard.

Spark Notebook (beta)






New ways to install Hue



It was a pleasure to present at Lucene Solr Revolution in Washington DC and Big Data Spain in Madrid.




Next release (3.9) will mostly focus on Spark & Search and bring general improvements/feature completeness in all the apps.


In parallel, the design & development of Hue 4 is kicking in with the goal of becoming the equivalent of “Excel for Big Data”. A fresh new look, a unification of all the apps, wizards for ingesting data… will let you use the full platform in a single UI for fast Big Data querying and prototyping!




As usual feel free to contribute to the project and participate on the hue-user list or @gethue!
