Engine Upgrade 1.6.0
Cloudera Data Science Workbench 1.6.0 (and later) ships version 8 of the base engine image.
- R - 3.5.1
- Python - 2.7.11, 3.6.8
For details about the packages included in the base engine, see Cloudera Data Science Workbench Engine Versions and Packaging.
(For Upgrades Only) Move Existing Projects to the Latest Base Engine Images
Security best practices dictate that engine containers should not run as the root user. Engines (v7 and lower) briefly initialize as the
rootuser and then run as the
cdswuser. Engines v8 (and higher) now follow the best practice and run only as the
cdswuser. For more details, see Restricting User-Created Pods.
CDH 6 Compatibility
The base engine image you use must be compatible with the version of CDH you are running. This is especially important if you are running workloads on Spark. Older base engines (v6 and lower) cannot support the latest versions of CDH 6. If you want to run Spark workloads on CDH 6, you must upgrade your projects to base engine 7 (or higher).
