Scylla Enterprise Release 2017.1.6

The Scylla team is pleased to announce the release of Scylla Enterprise 2017.1.6, a production-ready Scylla Enterprise minor release.

Scylla Enterprise 2017.1.6 is a bug fix release for the 2017.1 branch, the latest stable branch of Scylla Enterprise. The 2017.1 branch is based on Scylla open source 1.6 and includes backported bug fixes from upstream releases (1.7, 2.0, 2.1) as well as enterprise-only bug fixes.

Noteworthy Additions in 2017.1.6

Users will now be warned when a large partition is compacted. If the partition size is larger than the threshold setting, the warning fires. The default threshold for a warning is 1000MB. This value can be configured in scylla.yaml with the compaction_large_partition_warning_threshold_mb parameter.  #2209

Bugs fixed in this release

Commitlog segments are left on disk on clean shutdown. This fix is required for a future migration from Scylla Enterprise 2017.1 to the upcoming Scylla Enterprise 2018.1. #2550
