Component Versions

The official Apache versions of all HDP 2.5.6 components are listed below. All components listed here are official Apache releases of the most recent stable versions available.

The Hortonworks approach is to provide patches only when necessary, to ensure the interoperability of components. Unless you are explicitly directed by Hortonworks Support to take a patch update, each of the HDP components should remain at the following package version levels, to ensure a certified and supported copy of HDP 2.5.6.

Official Apache versions for HDP 2.5.6:

  • Apache Accumulo 1.7.0

  • Apache Atlas 0.7.1


    If you are running ATLAS Service on the SUSE 11 platform, you must first upgrade Ambari to version or newer before upgrading to HDP 2.5.6.

    To conform to security standards, ATLAS has disabled TLS v1 and TLS v1.1 protocols in HDP 2.5.5+ releases. However, on the SUSE 11 platform, the default curl command does not support TLS 1.2 protocol. This means an Atlas installation on the SUSE 11 platform requires AMBARI version or above, which will allow ATLAS Service to work with older (insecure) TLS protocols.
