My bad -- Didn't realize I was looking at the old Hadoop page.
Here's the correct list of releases. https://hadoop.apache.org/releases.html

Re: [DISCUSS] EOL 2.8 or another 2.8.x release?

Jeff Hubbs
I've never understood the fixation of staying on 2.x versions of Hadoop. The Apache Group folks who attend to Hadoop - there are only so many of them and their time and attention have to be spread among both new development and bug fixes in both branches. At some point, any effort directed toward 2.x at all comes at the detriment of effort directed toward 3.x. I started working with Hadoop in spring of 2018 and at that point, it seemed that irrespective of where Cloudera and Hortonworks were with their products - which I wasn't going to be using anyway - the two branches functioned differently enough and 3.x was far enough along in its lifetime that I would be far better off if I skipped right past 2.x.

Another factor in this decision was that past experience with Tomcat (another Apache Group effort) demonstrated that their developers didn't have much patience with folks who were working with old versions of Tomcat; they'd even backed out of one minor branch altogether and would actually stand down from helping you with your problems with it if that's what you were insisting on using.

I'm +1 for 1 more release in 2.8.x and declare that 2.8 is EoL.

> would be even happier if we could move people to 2.9.x
Agreed.
