Is UnQL Dead?:

UNQL started with quite some hype last year. However, after some burst of activity the project came to a hold. So it seems, that – at least as a project – UNQL has been a failure. IMHO one of the major issues with the current UNQL is, that it tries to cover everything in NoSQL, from key-value stores to document-stores to graph-database. Basically you end up with greatest common divisor – namely key-value access.

I’ve never posted about UnQL because I really couldn’t see its future.

Catching up after almost two weeks offline is no easy task, but I hope I’ll not miss any important events, releases, or posts. But if I do, please email me.

Apache Hadoop User Impersonation vulnerability

This vulnerability discovered by Cloudera’s Aaron T. Myers affects Hadoop’s versions,,, 1.0.0 to 1.0.1, and 0.23.0 to 0.23.1 where Kerberos is enabled. Complete details available here.

CouchDB 1.2.0

This is the first important release after the start of the year CouchDB hubbub with Damien Katz and Couchbase. The new version is a major release in itself deserving its own post: CouchDB 1.2.0: Performance, Security, API, Core and Replication Improvements.

Riak 1.1.2: Stabilization release

Just a maintenance release in the Riak 1.1 series. Complete release notes here.

21:12 CouchDB 1.2.0: Performance, Security, API, Core and Replication Improvements (2415 Bytes) » myNoSQL
CouchDB 1.2.0: Performance, Security, API, Core and Replication Improvements:

CouchDB 1.2.0 was released on April 6th. The linked post provides all the details of the new version, but here are some important improvements included with the new release:

  • Performance: added a native JSON parser
  • Performance: optional file compression for database and view index files
  • Performance: a new replicator implementation. More reliable, faster, configurable.
  • Security: the _users database and information in the _replication databases are not longer readable by everyone
  • Core: added support for automatic compaction. Automatic compaction is off by default, but can be enabed through Futon or the .ini file and configured to run based on multiple variables:
    • A threshold for the file_size to disk_size ratio (say 70%)
    • A time window specified in hours and minutes (e.g 01:00-05:00)
    • Compaction can be cancelled if it exceeds the closing time.
    • Compaction for views and databases can be set to run in parallel
    • If there’s not enough space (2 × data_size) on the disk to complete a compaction, an error is logged and the compaction is not started.

Although SnipMate is a powerful Vim plugin, I don’t use it as nearly often as I should. Mostly because I simply don’t remember all the delicious snippets that it brings at my fingertips. The solution to that silly situation is, fortunately, quite simple: I need a way to print cheatsheets for those snippet files. Now, [...]
