RDD-based machine learning APIs (in maintenance mode).
spark.mllib package is in maintenance mode as of the Spark 2.0.0 release to encourage
migration to the DataFrame-based APIs under the org.apache.spark.ml package.
While in maintenance mode,
- no new features in the RDD-based
spark.mllibpackage will be accepted, unless they block implementing new features in the DataFrame-based
- bug fixes in the RDD-based APIs will still be accepted.
The developers will continue adding more features to the DataFrame-based APIs in the 2.x series to reach feature parity with the RDD-based APIs. And once we reach feature parity, this package will be deprecated.
