Hadoop

Fokko Driesprong announces the release of Apache Avro 1.9.0:

Avro is a remote procedure call and data serialization framework developed within Apache’s Hadoop project. It uses JSON for defining data types and protocols, and serializes data in a compact binary format. If you’re unfamiliar with Avro, I would highly recommend the explanation of Dennis Vriend at Binx.io about an introduction into Avro.

Over 272 Jira tickets have been resolved, and 844 PRs are included since 1.8.2. I’d like to point out several major changes.

That’s a lot of tickets.
