Amazon EMR 6.7.0 releases

The following Amazon EMR 6.7.0 releases are available for Amazon EMR on EKS:

Release notes for Amazon EMR 6.7.0

  • Supported applications ‐ Spark 3.2.1-amzn-0, Jupyter Enterprise Gateway 2.6, Hudi 0.11-amzn-0, Iceberg 0.13.1.

  • Supported components ‐ aws-hm-client (Glue connector), aws-sagemaker-spark-sdk, emr-s3-select, emrfs, emr-ddb, hudi-spark.

  • With the upgrade to JEG 2.6, kernel management is now asynchronous, which means that JEG does not block transactions when a kernel launch is in progress. This greatly improves the user experience by providing the following:

    • capability to execute commands in currently running notebooks when other kernel launches are in progress

    • capability to launch multiple kernels simultaneously without impacting already running kernels

  • Supported configuration classifications:

    Classifications Descriptions


    Change values in Hadoop’s core-site.xml file.


    Change EMRFS settings.


    Change values in Spark's file.


    Change values in Spark's spark-defaults.conf file.


    Change values in the Spark environment.


    Change values in Spark's hive-site.xml file.


    Change values in Spark's file.

    Configuration classifications allow you to customize applications. These often correspond to a configuration XML file for the application, such as spark-hive-site.xml. For more information, see Configuring Applications.

Resolved Issues

  • EMR on EKS 6.7 fixes an issue in 6.6 when using Apache Spark's pod templates functionality with managed endpoints. The issue was present in Amazon EMR on EKS releases 6.4, 6.5 and 6.6. You can now use pod templates to define how your Spark driver and executor pods start when using managed endpoints to run interactive analytics.

  • In previous EMR on EKS releases, Jupyter Enterprise Gateway would block transactions when kernel launch was in progress, and this impeded the execution of currently running notebook sessions. You can now execute commands in currently running notebooks when other kernel launches are in progress. You can also launch multiple kernels simultaneously without the risk of losing connectivity to kernels that are already running.
