Issues fixed by this release, with open source references, if applicable:

  • CQL: DISTINCT was ignored with IN restrictions #2837 – CQL: Dropping a keyspace with a user-defined type (UDT) resulted in an Error #3068
  • CQL: Selecting from a partition with no clustering restrictions (single partition scan) might have resulted in a temporary loss of writes #3608
  • CQL: Fixed a rare race condition when adding a new table, which could have generated an exception #3636
  • CQL: INSERT using a prepared statement with the wrong fields may have generated a segmentation fault #3688
  • CQL: MIN/MAX CQL aggregates were broken for timestamp/timeuuid values. For example SELECT MIN(date) FROM ks.hashes_by_ruid; where date is of type timestamp #3789
  • CQL: TRUNCATE request could have returned a succeeds response even if it failed on some replicas #3796
  • CQL: In rare cases, SELECT with LIMIT could have returned a smaller number of values than was necessary #3605 – Performance: eviction of large partitions may have caused latency spikes #3289
  • Performance: a mistake in static row digest calculations may have lead to redundant read repairs #3753, #3755
  • Performance: In some cases, it was noted that scylla nodes were stalling due to the max_task_backlog exceeding. Preventive measures have been implemented to keep this from happening. Enterprise issue #555
  • Stability: In some cases following a reset, the coordinator was sending a write request with the same ID as the request is sent prior to the restart. This triggered an assert in the coordinator. #3153
  • Stability: on rare cases eviction from invalidated partitions may cause an infinite loop. Enterprise issues #567
  • Monitoring: Added a counter for speculative retries #3030
