Announcing Sizzle, a Compiler and Runtime for the Sawzall Language

I am pleased to announce the v0.0 release of Sizzle, a compiler and runtime for the Sawzall language. Sizzle targets Hadoop directly, by compiling Sawzall programs into Hadoop job jars that can be run anywhere Hadoop is installed, without requiring a Sawzall interpreter to also be present.

Although the current release should be considered developer preview release, it is currently possible to run non-trivial Sawzall programs on a 0.21 Hadoop cluster or your local desktop.

More information here:

and all code is available from:

Please try it out, and let me know any problems you experience via
github issues, @SizzleLanguage, or comments to this blog.
