Latest preview release

Preview releases, as the name suggests, are releases for previewing upcoming features. Unlike nightly packages, preview releases have been audited by the project’s management committee to satisfy the legal requirements of Apache Software Foundation’s release policy. Preview releases are not meant to be functional, i.e. they can and highly likely will contain critical bugs or documentation errors. The latest preview release is Spark 3.0.0-preview2, published on Dec 23, 2019.

Spark artifacts are hosted in Maven Central. You can add a Maven dependency with the following coordinates:

groupId: org.apache.spark
artifactId: spark-core_2.12
version: 3.1.2

Installing with PyPi

PySpark is now available in pypi. To install just run pip install pyspark.
