General Changes

  • Add Redis Connector.
  • Add geometric_mean() function.
  • Fix restoring interrupt status in StatementClient.
  • Support getting server version in JDBC driver.
  • Improve correctness and compliance of JDBC DatabaseMetaData.

  • Replaced the task.http-notification-threads config option with two independent options: task.http-response-threads and task.http-timeout-threads.
