Spark 2.0 prepares to catch fire

Ian Pointer | June 30, 2016
Today, Databricks subscribers can get a technical preview of Spark 2.0. Improved performance, SparkSessions, and streaming lead a parade of enhancements

Should I rush to upgrade?

With promised large gains in performance and long-awaited new features in Spark Streaming, it's tempting to hit Upgrade as soon as Apache Spark 2.0 becomes generally available in the next few weeks.

I would temper that impulse with a note or two of caution. A lot has changed under the covers for this release, so expect some bugs to crawl out as people start running their existing code on test clusters.

Nonetheless, with a brace of new features and performance improvements, it's clear that Apache Spark 2.0 deserves its full version bump. Look for it in the next few weeks!
