Release 0.254


There is a backward compatibility issue in the DWRF writer that might cause other engines to be unable to read files written by this release.


General Changes

  • Fix a bug where queries that have both remote functions and a local function with only constant arguments could throw an IndexOutOfBoundException during planning. The bug was introduced by #16039.

  • Fix a CPU regression for queries using element_at() for MAP. Introduced by #16027.

  • Add fragment result caching support for UNNEST queries.

  • Add poisson_cdf() and inverse_poisson_cdf() functions.

  • Add memory tracking in TableFinishOperator which can be enabled by setting the table-finish-operator-memory-tracking-enabled configuration property to true. Enabling this property can help with investigating GC issues on the coordinator by allowing us to debug whether stats collection uses a lot of memory.

  • Remove spilling strategy PER_QUERY_MEMORY_LIMIT and add configuration property experimental.query-limit-spill-enabled and session property query_limit_spill_enabled. When query_limit_spill_enabled is set to true and the spill strategy is not PER_TASK_MEMORY_THRESHOLD, then we will spill whenever a query uses more than the per-node total memory limit in combined revocable and non-revocable memory.

Hive Changes

  • Fix a bug where the files would not be sorted when inserting into bucketed sorted tables with Glue.

  • Add support for validating the values returned from the partition cache with the actual value from Metastore. This can be enabled by setting the configuration property hive.partition-cache-validation-percentage.

  • Add support for allowing to match columns between table and partition schemas by names when the configuration property hive.parquet.use-column-names or the hive catalog session property parquet_use_column_names is set to true. By default they are mapped by index.

  • Add support for configuring the Glue endpoint URL. Hive Connector.

  • Add support for accessing tables in Glue metastore that do not have a table type.

  • Add support for the S3 Intelligent-Tiering storage class writing data. This can be enabled by setting the configuration property to INTELLIGENT_TIERING.

  • Add configuration property hive.metastore.glue.max-error-retries for the maximum number of retries for glue client connections. The default value is 10. Hive Connector.

Presto On Spark Changes

  • Optimize Driver commit memory footprint.

  • Add session property spark_memory_revoking_threshold and configuration property spark.memory-revoking-threshold. Spilling is triggered when total memory is beyond this threshold.

SPI Changes

  • Add support for custom query prerequisites to be checked and satisfied through QueryPrerequisites interface. See #16073.
