Maintenance Release Changelog v8.7

2024-07-23 Version 8.7.7

  • Enhancement: Added a new engine variable, sampling_estimate_approach, used to configure sampling in columnstore tables. (8.7.7)

    See Statistics and Sampling Concepts for more information.

  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue where indexes were not case-sensitive when performing full-text search against JSON keys.

  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue where ALTER TABLE could throw errors related to VECTOR-type columns, even if those columns were not part of the ALTER.

  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue in CDC-in pipelines causing delays between batches.

  • Enhancement: Added Feedback Reoptimization via the REOPTIMIZE SQL command. The command is used to reoptimize a query based on previous executions of it. You can reoptimize a query multiple times, pick execution plans from any iteration, and then choose the best iteration's plan to commit to use. Syntax:

    REOPTIMIZE [[EXPLAIN] | [COMMIT]] [<reoptimize_level>]

    For more information, see REOPTIMIZE.

  • Enhancement: Added websocket_proxy.log to the files managed via Trace Log Rotation.

  • Enhancement: Added support for numeric range queries when doing full-text search against JSON fields.

    See numeric range queries for more information.

  • Enhancement: Enabled lateral join subselects to reference fields in grandparent SELECT.

  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue that could occur when replacing JSON expressions with computed columns in GROUP BY lists.

  • Enhancement: Enabled log_file_size_partitions and log_file_size_ref_dbs engine variables on SingleStore Helios.

2024-07-18 Version 8.7.6

  • Bugfix: Fixed display of microseconds for default TIMESTAMP(6) column values in system information commands (such as DESCRIBE TABLE or INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS.COLUMN_DEFAULT).

  • Bugfix: Fixed a potential false positive output for OBSERVE queries during the first delete of large columnstore segments.

  • Enhancement: Allow leading 0x prefix for OBSERVE offsets.

  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue where the output of the OBSERVE query for the first delete on a columnstore segment was the inverse of expected.

  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue where user defined variables could read collation-related variables incorrectly during a SET @var = ... command.

  • Bugfix: Fixed a table eviction issue that can crash a node when replaying straight-to-disk inserts on unique key tables during database recovery.

  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue in MongoDB CDC-in pipelines which blocks data ingestion after ALTER PIPELINE.

  • Enhancement: Allow NULL values in JSON columns when used with Full-Text search.

  • Bugfix: Fixed several system warnings that occur when running a SELECT from the MV_VERSION_HISTORY information schema view.

  • Enhancement: Improved performance of VECTOR-type User-Defined Variables(UDVs). No longer require using extra typecast to BLOB datatype.

2024-07-09 Version 8.7.5

  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue to now avoid prematurely assigning column reference to namespace.

  • Enhancement: Added support for INNER/LEFT lateral joins.

  • Bugfix: Fixed issue that caused protocol errors in the pipelines.

2024-07-02 Version 8.7.4

  • Bugfix: Temporarily disallow shallow table copy for tables created on version 8.0 or before.

  • Enhancement: Enhance table pushdown to union rewrite to enable derived table pushdown based on row count estimation.

  • Enhancement: Added support for ON NODE clause for SHOW PROFILE PROCESS|PLAN, which forwards the command to another aggregator.

  • Enhancement: Improved performance of the CREATE PROJECTION command.

  • Bugfix: Unneeded sort fields will no longer be projected to the aggregator.

  • Enhancement: Improved the performance of CREATE TABLES AS INFER PIPELINE.

  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue that could occur where a join with TABLE(JSON_TO_ARRAY(JSON_EXTRACT_JSON())) is performed with numeric keys in the JSON_EXTRACT_JSON() statement could possibly lead to incorrect output or crashes.

  • Bugfix: Identified an upgrade scenario that causes a blob leak and added a command to delete the leaked blobs. As a result, temporarily disallowing shallow table copy for tables created on version 8.0 or before.

  • Enhancement: Set collation utf8_bin for the JSON_TO_ARRAY builtin in cases where the input has utf8 charset, and set collation utf8mb4_bin in cases where the input has utf8mb4 charset.

  • Bugfix: An error is reported when inserting incorrect data into vector column for any data_conversion_compatibility_level.

  • Bugfix: Fixed a possible connectivity issue and eliminated delay when starting the Lucene service for the first time.

  • Enhancement: Updated the MV_BOTTOMLESS_STATUS_EXTENDED information schema table:

    • Removed the LATEST_API_FAILURE_RATE and AVERAGE_API_LATENCY_US columns.

    • Added the following columns:

      SUCCESS_API_PER_SECOND - Number of successful remote storage api calls per second over the last 30 seconds.

      FAILED_API_PER_SECOND - Number of failed remote storage api calls per second over the last 30 seconds.

      AVERAGE_API_EVENT_LATENCY_US - Average latency to complete a remote storage api event over the past 30 seconds. Includes time taken on retries or waiting for rate limiting.

      AVERAGE_API_RESPONSE_LATENCY_US - Average latency of receiving a response for a remote storage api request. Excludes waiting for rate limiting or retries. NOTE: This is relevant only for S3. otherwise this field is identical to AVERAGE_API_EVENT_LATENCY_US.

2024-06-25 Version 8.7.3

  • Bugfix: Fixed an edge case where unlimited storage garbage collection was causing the master aggregator to run out of connections.

  • Bugfix: Fixed a crash that occurred when dropping a database that contained tables with both very high and low column IDs.

2024-06-19 Version 8.7.2

  • Enhancement: Added the following monitoring metrics to the information_schema.mv_bottomless_status_extended view: NUM_SUCCESS_API_REQUESTS, NUM_FAILED_API_REQUESTS, LATEST_API_FAILURE_RATE, AVERAGE_API_LATENCY_US, IS_GC_RUNNING, NUM_REMOTE_FILES_DELETED, and NUM_SLOW_DOWNS.

  • Bugfix: Fixed a crash that occurred when spilling a hash join operation with at least 3 tables.

  • Bugfix: Fixed a crash that occurred when running the SHOW CREATE PROJECTIONS command when using the database name in the syntax (SHOW CREATE PROJECTIONS database_name.projection_name...).

  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug where the full-text service controller would periodically restart the process when the started process hadn't fully completed.

  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue where INSERT ... SELECT into VECTOR type columns returned an error.

  • Bugfix: Fixed issues with the TO_CHAR() function where results were truncated or reading communication packet errors were generated.

  • Bugfix: Fixed an integer overflow issue in unique integer columns by changing the storage type to a 32-bit unsigned integer.

  • Bugfix: Fixed incorrect results in an uncommon scenario where hash join operators with an optimization path need to spill.

  • Enhancement: The memsql_exporter now collects additional fields from the mv_activities_extended_cumulative information schema view.

  • Enhancement: Updated the default client.id for the Kafka configuration to the SingleStore partner ID.

  • Enhancement: Added support for Iceberg ingest via Snowflake, REST, and JDBC.

  • Enhancement: Added support for BM25 full-text search (FTS) as a built-in feature.
