Issues fixed in this release:

  • Stability: JSON formatter issues may cause API calls fail in some cases, for example top partition on a CDC table #9061
  • Stability: A crash in ScyllaDB memory management code, triggered by index file caching, was fixed. The bug was caused by an allocation from within the memory allocator causing cache eviction in order to free memory. Freeing the evicted items re-enters the memory allocator, in a way that was not expected by the code. Fixes #9573
  • Stability: nodetool stop RESHAPE not aborting reshape for tables waiting for their turn #9836
  • Stability: ScyllaDB exit when using CDC with preimage to track a base table with compact storage #9876
  • Stability: With RBNO, announcing new CDC generations happens too late, causing inconsistencies #10149
  • Stability: compare_atomic_cell_for_merge doesn’t compare TTL if expiry is the same. This is not consistent with the way the cell hash is compute, and may cause  repair to keep trying to repair discrepancies caused by the TTL being different.  #10156, #10173
  • Stability: Cleanup compaction / rewrite SSTable block behind regular compaction for each SSTable #10175
