Issues fixed in this release:

  • Alternator: UpdateItem‘s “ADD” can’t create a new set or number #7763
  • Alternator: unexpected ValidationException in ConditionExpression and FilterExpression #8043
  • CQL: Invalid aggregation result on table with index: When using aggregates (COUNT(*)) on table with index on clustering key and filtering on clustering key, wrong results are returned  #7355
  • Tools: Nodetool tablestats reports inconsistent bloom filter size #4513
  • Stability: ‘ascii’ type column isn’t validated, and one could create illegal ascii values by using CQL without bind variables #5421
  • Stability: Scylla records large data cells in the system.large_rows table. If such a large cell was part of a static rows, Scylla would crash #6780
  • Stability: Hinted handoff is using very long timeout to sending some hints #7051
  • Stability: Unexpected partition key when repairing with different number of shards may resulting in error similar to: “WARN  2020-11-04 19:06:41,168 [shard 1] repair - repair_writer: keyspace=ks, table=cf, multishard_writer failed: invalid_mutation_fragment_stream”.  This error may occur when running repair between nodes with a different core number. #7552 Seastar #867
  • Stability: Wild pointer dereferenced when try_flush_memtable_to_sstable on shutdown fails to create sstable in a dropped keyspace #7792
  • Crash in row cache if a partition key is larger than 13k, with a managed_bytes::do_linearize() const: Assertion `lc._nesting‘ failed error  #7897
  • Stability: a rare race condition may cause TWCS sometimes stops dropping expired SSTables #8038
  • Scylla on AWS: When psutil.disk_paritions() reports / is /dev/root, aws_instance mistakenly reports root partition is part of ephemeral disks, and RAID construction will fail. #8055
  • Stability: stream_session::prepare is missing a string format argument #8067
  • Stability: TWCS reshape was silently ignoring windows which contain at least min_threshold sstables (can happen with data segregation). #8147
  • Monitoring: False 1 second latency reported in I/O queue delay metrics #8166
