Announcing the Naiad 0.4 release

by on April 22, 2014

Since we released Naiad as open-source software on GitHub last October, we have been busy adding features that make it easier to use Naiad for your applications, in settings ranging from your laptop to a distributed cluster. In the coming weeks, we’ll be posting about what’s new. This post gathers together the things that have changed.

  • Naiad now includes support for running on YARN and Microsoft Azure HDInsight clusters. This includes job submission tools, and a library that supports getting your data into and out of Azure.
  • The high-level frameworks now include GraphLINQ, which includes a set of graph-specific optimizations that make it easier and more efficient to handle graph data in Naiad.
  • We’ve spent time making the release easier to use. For the first time, we have made NuGet packages available for Naiad, and its frameworks and tools. We’ve published comprehensive documentation for the full Naiad API and introductory walkthroughs. And we’ve added convenience methods to simplify the prototypical Naiad program and make it easier to get started.

You can get the source code under the Apache 2.0 license from the Naiad GitHub repository. We’re continuing to improve the documentation and fix bugs in this release, as we work on the next version of Naiad. In the meantime, if you have any difficulties using the software, raise an issue on the Naiad GitHub issue tracker.
