We’d like to inform you about the withdrawal of support for Apache Spark v2.0 in IBM Analytics for Apache Spark which will end on April 30, 2018. However, this service will continue to support Apache Spark versions under the Spark 2.1.x branch. As part of IBM’s effort to provide a current, secure and GDPR compliant cloud service, several security vulnerabilities are being identified and repaired.
