Release 0.271


General Changes

  • Fix a bug where cache performance might be affected when CONSISTENT_HASHING is used as the scheduling strategy.

  • Fix cast from bigint to varchar. Casting a number to a bounded varchar smaller than needed to hold the result will now fail. Example for presto CLI

    select cast(1234500000000000000 as varchar(3));

    Query … failed: Value 1234500000000000000 cannot be represented as varchar(3)

  • Fix reorder joins optimization where plan might not be optimal when original build side is larger than configured join-max-broadcast-table-size.

  • Add a new configuration property experimental.distinct-aggregation-large-block-size-threshold to define the threshold size beyond which the block will be spilled into a separate spill file. This can be overridden by distinct_aggregation_large_block_size_threshold session property.

  • Add a new configuration property experimental.distinct-aggregation-large-block-spill-enabled to enable spilling of blocks that are larger than experimental.distinct-aggregation-large-block-size-threshold bytes into a separate spill file. This can be overridden by distinct_aggregation_large_block_spill_enabled session property.

  • Add support for viewing expanded prepared query in Web UI.

  • Generate a warning when creating a map with double/real as keys.

Hive Changes

  • Fix ANALYZE TABLE for partitioned Hive tables with complex columns (array, map, struct).

  • Improve performance of ANALYZE TABLE on hive tables with complex columns.

Iceberg Changes

  • Remove the iceberg.catalog.uri config. Use hive.metastore.uri instead.

  • Add support for ORC format caching module for iceberg connector.

  • Add support for basic timestamp in the iceberg connector.
