This page lists operating systems, Java versions, databases, platforms, CDH components and subcomponents, and product functionality that have been deprecated or removed.

Deprecated Items

A deprecated item is a feature, component, platform, or functionality that Cloudera is planning to remove in a future release. Cloudera supports items that are deprecated until they are removed, and the deprecation gives customers time to plan for removal.
