Given the quickly increasing scope (from a perspective of sheer number of jiras) of hive 0.13, it was important to get hive 0.13 out of the door, and stop accepting patches, and move new development off to 0.14, but we now have need of a 0.13.1 release with major bug fixes only (no feature additions, nothing like refactoring) as a stabilization of 0.13. This page has been created for the purpose of tracking a release of a 0.13.1 release of hive.


Jiras requested after RC0


The list of jiras requested for RC0 of 0.13.1 is now closed. Any further inclusion requests must be a critical bugfix that does not have any workarounds, must have been committed into 0.14 (unless the bug does not affect 0.14) and must be supported by another 2 committers as well for inclusion. Ideally, this table will be blank.
