Good Afternoon Everyone,
> The Apache Gora team are very proud to announce the immediate release of
> Gora 0.4 which is a major release for the project.
> The Apache Gora open source framework provides an in-memory data model and
> persistence for big data. Gora supports persisting to column stores, key
> value stores, document stores and RDBMSs, and analyzing the data with
> extensive Apache Hadoop™ MapReduce support. Gora uses the Apache Software
> License v2.0.
> This release addresses no fewer than 60 issues. Major improvements within
> the release scope comprise a complete upgrade to Apache Avro 1.7.X and
> overhaul of the Gora persistency API (such improvements enable Gora to be
> used to map much more expressive and complicated data structures than
> previously available), upgrades to Apache HBase 0.94.13, Apache Cassandra
> 2.0.X and Apache Accumulo 1.5.X.
> Users can also benefit from using Gora + Solr for object-to-datastore
> mapping with the addition of the new Solr module which uses Solr 4.X.
> Gora sources tar.gz and .zip release artifacts (along with signatures) can
> be obtained from visiting our DOWNLOADS  page. We also encourage users
> to upgrade their build dependencies using our published Maven Artifacts .
> Please redistribute this email to your project mailing list.
