Apache Drill 1.0.0 Release Notes

Release date: May 19, 2015

Today we're happy to announce the availability of Drill 1.0.0, providing additional enhancements and bug fixes. This release includes the following new features, enhancements, unresolved issues, and bug fixes:

Sub-task

  • [DRILL-2150] - Create an abstraction for repeated value vectors.
  • [DRILL-2358] - Ensure DrillScanRel differentiates skip-all, scan-all & scan-some in a backward compatible fashion
  • [DRILL-2893] - ScanBatch throws a NullPointerException instead of returning OUT_OF_MEMORY
  • [DRILL-2895] - AbstractRecordBatch.buildSchema() should properly handle OUT_OF_MEMORY outcome
  • [DRILL-2902] - Add support for context UDFs: user (and its synonyms session_user, system_user) and current_schema
  • [DRILL-2905] - RootExec implementations should properly handle IterOutcome.OUT_OF_MEMORY
  • [DRILL-2920] - properly handle OutOfMemoryException
  • [DRILL-2947] - AllocationHelper.allocateNew() doesn't have a consistent behavior when it can't allocate

Unresolved Issues

  • [DRILL-1868] Aliases are not allowed in WHERE, HAVING and GROUP BY clauses. Drill should return an error when such aliases are encountered, but instead Drill returns an incorrect result.
  • [DRILL-2015] Casting a numeric value that does not fit the data type of the value and causes overflow returns an incorrect result.
  • [DRILL-2355] Drill output from the TRUNC function in some cases includes an extra .0 in the result. Drill binds TRUNC functions having two input parameters to the function holder. The output type of TRUNC functions is FLOAT8 when the input is FLOAT8, resulting in the extra .0.

Bug Fixes

  • [DRILL-148] - Remove sandbox directory from source control, it is no longer utilized
