ScyllaDB Release 2.1.1


The ScyllaDB team is pleased to announce the release of ScyllaDB 2.1.1, a bugfix release of the ScyllaDB 2.1 stable branch. Release 2.1.1, like all past and future 2.x.y releases, is backward compatible and supports rolling upgrades.

ScyllaDB is an open source NoSQL database compatible with Apache Cassandra, with superior performance and consistently low latency. Starting from this release, critical bugs will be fixed in the ScyllaDB 2.1 and 2.0 release series only. If you are still using open source ScyllaDB 1.7 or prior – you are encouraged to upgrade. We will continue to fix bugs and add features to the master branch towards ScyllaDB 2.2 and beyond.

Bugs Fixed in this Release

  • ScyllaDB aborted with an “Assertion `end >= _stream_position’ failed” exception. This occurred when querying a partition with no clustering ranges (happened on counter table with no live rows) which also didn’t have static columns. #3304
  • A regression was discovered in version 2.1.0 which caused ScyllaDB to crash in some cases at initialization or close soon thereafter. #3296
  • In some rare cases when one or more nodes were down, a ScyllaDB gossip bug caused ScyllaDB to exit with a segmentation fault. #3299
