scylla release

The ScyllaDB team is pleased to announce the release of ScyllaDB Enterprise 2018.1.4, a production-ready ScyllaDB Enterprise minor release. ScyllaDB Enterprise 2018.1.4 is a bug fix release for the 2018.1 branch, the latest stable branch of our enterprise NoSQL database solution.

ScyllaDB Enterprise 2018.1.4 fixes one critical issue on the caching of data for DateTiered or TimeWindow compaction strategies. If you are using either of these strategies, we recommend upgrading ASAP. The critical issue is: In some cases when using DateTiered or TimeWindow compaction strategies, a partition can start to appear empty until ScyllaDB is restarted. The problem is in the cache logic, while the data itself is safely persistent on disk. #3552

ScyllaDB Enterprise customers are encouraged to upgrade to ScyllaDB Enterprise 2018.1.4 in coordination with the ScyllaDB support team.

Additional Issues Solved in This Release

  • Reads which are using clustering key restrictions (including paging reads) may be missing some of the deletions and static row writes for DateTiered and TimeWindow compaction strategies. Similar to #3552, data on the disk is not affected. #3553
