Apache Hadoop 3.3.3 Release Notes

These release notes cover new developer and user-facing incompatibilities, important issues, features, and major improvements.

In order to resolve build issues with Maven 3.8.1, we have to bump SolrJ to latest version 8.8.2 as of now. Solr is used by YARN application catalog. Hence, we would recommend upgrading Solr cluster accordingly before upgrading entire Hadoop cluster to 3.4.0 if the YARN application catalog service is used.

log4j 1 was replaced with reload4j which is fork of log4j 1.2.17 with the goal of fixing pressing security issues.

If you are depending on the hadoop artifacts in your build were explicitly excluding log4 artifacts, and now want to exclude the reload4j files, you will need to update your exclusion lists <exclusion> <groupId>org.slf4j</groupId> <artifactId>slf4j-reload4j</artifactId> </exclusion> <exclusion> <groupId>ch.qos.reload4j</groupId> <artifactId>reload4j</artifactId> </exclusion>
