Issues solved in this release:
Stability: Scylla may hang or even segfaults when querying
Stability: Potential undefined behavior in sstables cleanup, which may cause a segmentation fault #4718
Stability: Catch SSTable unclosed partition format error in the write path, not in the read path. A new command line flag:
--abort-on-internal-error make Scylla exit as soon a such an error occurs, making it easier to catch and debug. #4786
Scylla try to stop view builder even if it is disabled, resulting in a core dump #4589
Time Window Compaction Strategy: on some very rare cases, a use after free may hurt performance #4465
Stability: In some cases, when
--abort-on-lsa-bad-alloc is enabled, Scylla aborts even though it’s not really out of memory #2924
