Oryx 2 v2.8.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2018-11-25 // over 1 year ago
  • ⚡️ The only change from 2.7.2 is to update and build the project for Spark 2.4, Hadoop 3, and CDH 6.


Previous changes from v2.7.2

  • 🚀 This release fixes one important long-standing issue:

    ALS app: java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.Object cannot be cast to java.lang.String
    #304

    🐎 It was resolved by replacing Koloboke with Eclipse Collections. It's a non-trivial change but addresses a correctness issue, at the unfortunate cost of about 5% performance in the ALS app.
