You can now use Apache Livy (0.4) and new versions of Hue (4.0.1), Presto (0.184), Flink (1.3.2) and Apache Pig (0.17) on Amazon EMR release 5.9.0. Apache Livy is an application that enables you to submit, interact with, and manage Apache Spark applications over a REST interface. Hue 4.0.1 includes a redesigned interface and new SQL editor, interactive Spark notebook, and an improved job browser UI. Also, Apache Spark on release 5.9.0 now uses SSL instead of 3DES for in-transit encryption for the block transfer service, giving performance enhancements when using Amazon EC2 instance types with AES-NI. Additionally, we have added several enhancements to Spark to improve resilience and performance during Auto Scaling.
