[ANNOUNCE] Apache HBase 1.2.6 is now available for download

Sean Busbey-2
The HBase team is happy to announce the immediate availability of Apache
HBase 1.2.6.

Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, non-relational
database. Apache HBase gives you low latency random access to billions of
rows with millions of columns atop non-specialized hardware. To learn more
about HBase, see https://hbase.apache.org/.

HBase 1.2.6 is the latest maintenance release in the HBase 1.2 line,
continuing on the theme of bringing a stable, reliable database to the
Hadoop and NoSQL communities. This release includes over 25
bug fixes since 1.2.5.

Critical fixes include:

* HBASE-17287 - Master becomes a zombie if filesystem object closes
* HBASE-16630 - Fragmentation in long running Bucket Cache
* HBASE-17717 - Incorrect ZK ACL set for HBase superuser
* HBASE-15941 - HBCK repair should not unsplit healthy splitted region

The full list of fixes included in this release is available at:
