Microsoft.Hadoop.Avro Serialization appears to be based on Avro 1.7.6

I am working on doing some local Avro files (not using the Asure environment to start with) and ran into the Avro file output from my C# code not working trying to read the file with a Hive table in our Hortwonworks HDP (2.1) cluster.

What I believe I have identified is that the Microsoft.Hadoop.Avro library outputs Avro 1.7.6 format files but Hortonworks HDP (2.1) uses Avro 1.7.4.

Can someone confirm if this is correct?

What version of Avro files do the Asure HDInsight clusters use?

Note: I can get the Avro file output to work on a CDH Cloudera VM with Avro 1.7.6 installed.
