The ScyllaDB team is pleased to announce the release of ScyllaDB Enterprise 2018.1.0, a production-ready ScyllaDB Enterprise minor release. ScyllaDB Enterprise 2018.1.1 is a bug fix release for the 2018.1 branch, the latest stable branch of our enterprise NoSQL solution.

ScyllaDB Enterprise customers are encouraged to upgrade to ScyllaDB Enterprise 2018.1.1 in coordination with the ScyllaDB support team.

Bug Fixes in this Release (With Open Source Issue Number Where Applicable):

  • Upgrading to latest version of the RHEL kernel causes ScyllaDB to lose access to the RAID 0 data directory. #3437 A detailed notice has been sent to all relevant customers.
  • An upgrade from ScyllaDB 2017.1 to 2018.1 may cause frequent and redundant schema updates.  #3394
  • Multi-DC writes may fail during schema changes. #3393
  • Installing ScyllaDB 2018.1 on an old CentOS kernel results in the following error “systemd[5370]: Failed at step CAPABILITIES spawning /usr/bin/scylla: Invalid argument”. In ScyllaDB 2018.1.1 the dependency on kernels later than kernel-3.10.0-514.el7 is explicitly added to ScyllaDB Enterprise package spec, making ScyllaDB installations on older kernels impossible. #3176

Known Issues

ScyllaDB Enterprise 2018.1.1 was not validated on IBM POWER8 architecture. If you are using 2018.1. on Power, please wait for future notices on upgrade availability. In the meantime, you should explicitly install ScyllaDB Enterprise 2018.1.0, not 2018.1.
