You can now use upgraded versions of Presto (0.170), Apache Zeppelin (0.7.1), and Hue (3.12.0) on Amazon EMR release 5.5.0. Presto 0.170 includes support for LDAP authentication and various improvements and bug fixes. Hue 3.12.0 adds new features to the SQL editor, timeline and pivot graphing for visualization, and email notifications for Apache Oozie workflow completion. Additionally, we incorporated several improvements for Apache Flink and resiliency for Apache Spark, and we backported a bug fix for Spark 2.1.0 integration in Oozie.

You can create an Amazon EMR cluster with release 5.5.0 by choosing release label “emr-5.5.0” from the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or SDK. You can specify Presto, Zeppelin, Flink, Spark, and Hue to install these applications on your cluster. Please visit the Amazon EMR documentation for more information about release 5.5.0, Presto 0.170, Zeppelin 0.7.1, and Hue 3.12.0.
