Today, we’re happy to announce the availability of Drill 1.10.0. You can download it here.

The release provides the following bug fixes and improvements:


The CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE AS (CTTAS) command stores the results of a query in a temporary table. See CTTAS.

Improved Fault Tolerance

An optional tries=<value> parameter included in the JDBC connection string indicates the number of unique drillbits to which the client can try to connect. See Using the JDBC URL Format for a Direct Drillbit Connection.

Drill Version and Statistics in Web Console

The Web Console displays additional query profile statistics and the Drill version running on each Drill node in the cluster. See Identifying Multiple Drill Versions in a Cluster.

Implicit Interpretation of INT96

Drill implicitly interprets the INT96 timestamp data type in Parquet files when the new store.parquet.reader.int96_as_timestamp option is enabled. See About INT96 Support.

Kerberos Authentication

Drill supports Kerberos authentication between the client and drillbit. See Configuring Kerberos Authentication in the Securing Drill section.
