Breaking Changes

DX-43049
  • Dremio 23.0.0+ supports only MapR 6.2.0. If you are running MapR 5.2.x or 6.1.x, you must upgrade to MapR 6.2.0 before upgrading to Dremio 23. Dremio releases up to and including 22.x do not support MapR 6.2.0, only MapR 5.2.x and 6.1.x are supported in releases prior to Dremio 23.

    NOTE: MapR 6.2.0 supports only JDK 11. JDK8 is not supported.

  • Dremio can now read MAP data from Parquet files. You must run ALTER TABLE <table_name> FORGET METADATA on tables containing MAP data that you have previously queried. This feature is enabled by default. If you prefer the previous behavior of representing MAP data as STRUCT, set dremio.data_types.map.enabled to OFF under Settings > Support > Support Keys.

  • A preview job is no longer automatically triggered when you click on a dataset. If you have permissions to edit the dataset, you will see the original SQL in the SQL Editor. If you do not have permissions to edit the dataset, you will continue to see a SELECT * statement pre-populated in the SQL Editor.

    DX-47450
  • In previous releases, Dremio supported a maximum of 800 leaf columns in a table, though that value was configurable with the support key store.plugin.max_metadata_leaf_columns. If you used this support key and have upgraded to v23.0, reset the key so that you can use the maximum of 6,400 that is enabled with wide table support. See Creating and Querying Wide Tables for more information and limitations.

Known Issues

  • In this release, Dremio does not support Iceberg tables written with equality deletes.
    DX-52677
  • DML operations (INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, MERGE) are not supported on tables with MAP columns. CTAS is supported on tables with MAP columns.

    DX-57005

  • If a user was actively logged in to Dremio during the upgrade to version 23.0.0, pages under Settings will throw an Unexpected Error until the user logs out and logs back in.

    DX-56632

DX-55884 - expanded view and default reflections

What's New

  • This release of Dremio supports a semi-structured MAP data type that allows you to query map data from Apache Parquet files, Apache Iceberg, and Delta Lake. The MAP data type is a collection of key-value pairs and is useful for holding sparse data. See Data Types for more information.
    DX-44950
  • Dremio now supports LISTAGG, which is an aggregate function that concatenates a list of strings and places a separator between them. See LISTAGG for more information.
    DX-47463
  • The Jobs Profile page includes a number of enhancements so you can quickly find the most expensive execution steps in a query, understand details of each execution step and its impact on query time, memory consumption, data volume, and the effect on upstream and downstream data volume upstream, and identify system or data issues that are causing a query to be slow or expensive. See Viewing Query Profiles for more information.
    DX-29840
  • Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS) Gen1 is now supported as a source on Dremio's AWS Edition. For more information, see Azure Data Lake Storage Gen1.
    DX-51733
  • Elasticsearch is now supported as a source on Dremio's AWS Edition. For more information, see Elasticsearch.
    DX-51828
  • In this release, embedded Nessie historical data that is not used by Dremio is purged on a periodic basis to improve performance and avoid future upgrade issues. The maintenance interval can be modified with the nessie.kvversionstore.maintenance.period_minutes Support Key, and you can perform maintenance manually using the nessie-maintenance admin CLI command.
    DX-53159
DX-51980: Time travel queries by `TIMESTAMP` are now supported on Iceberg tables. See [Querying Apache Iceberg Tables](/current/reference/sql/commands/apache-iceberg-tables/apache-iceberg-select/) for more information.
DX-46373
  • Dremio now supports wide tables. See Creating and Querying Wide Tables for more information and limitations.

  • Added a new Admin CLI command, dremio-admin remove-duplicate-roles, that will remove duplicate LDAP groups or local roles and consolidate them into a single role. For more information, see Remove Duplicate Roles.

    DX-51484

DX-32718
  • Dremio now supports connecting to Amazon S3 sources using an AWS PrivateLink URL. For more information, see Amazon S3.

  • Similar to Encrypting the LDAP Bind Password, Dremio now supports the same encryption mechanism for wire encryption setup for the following fields in dremio.conf: keyStorePassword, keyPassword, and trustStorePassword

    DX-37191

DX-52677
  • Iceberg tables written with positional deletes are now supported.

  • Starting in Dremio 23.0.0, customers who select dremio/dremio-ee docker image will receive an Eclipse Temurin based image for JDK, either JDK 8 or JDK 11. Dremio will no longer provide docker images based on openjdk:jdk-8 for future Dremio versions since it has been officially deprecated. Older dremio/dremio-ee image versions will remain available.

    DX-57009

DX-47275
  • Added a button that allows you to quickly copy the ID of a job on the job details page.

Issues Fixed

DX-52271
  • When multiple metadata refresh jobs ran concurrently on the same dataset, one or more jobs could fail with ConcurrentModificationException.
DX-49945
  • Added table snapshot ID in the plan digest for Iceberg table scans so that the planner can distinguish between two different versions of the same table.
DX-44451
  • Added validation to the REST endpoint so that reflections cannot be configured to expire more quickly than the refresh period.
DX-41475
  • When promoting Iceberg tables, Dremio now correctly previews underlying table content for the latest snapshot, excluding delete files.

  • When promoting Iceberg tables backed by external catalogs, users would see an unhelpful Failed to get iceberg metadata error. The message now provides more information about using a data source configured for the catalog.

    DX-52662

DX-57044
  • After upgrading to Dremio 22.1.1, some coordinator nodes failed to start due to a failure in connecting to S3-compatible storage (sources or distributed storage configuration) that required path style access.

  • Following the upgrade to Dremio v22, Support Keys of type DOUBLE would no longer accept decimal values.

    DX-56918

  • Fixed an issue that was causing REFRESH REFLECTION and REFRESH DATASET jobs to hang when reading Iceberg metadata using Avro reader.
    DX-56556, DX-56244
DX-55680
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the status of a cancelled job to show as RUNNING or PLANNING.
DX-55630
  • Fixed a bug in Yarn-based deployments where certain properties that were meant for customizing Dremio executor containers were also being passed on to the Application Master container.
DX-55385
  • In some deployments, using a large number of REST API-based queries that return large result sets can create memory issues and lead to cluster instability.
DX-55218
  • Following the upgrade to Dremio 22, some queries to Hive 2 metastore external tables with data in S3 were running considerably slower than before.

  • In some scenarios, invalid metadata about partition statistics was leading to inaccurate rowcount estimates for tables. The result was slower than expected query execution or out of memory issues. For each table included in a query where this behavior appears, perform an ALTER TABLE <table-name> FORGET METADATA, then re-promote the resulting file or folder to a new table. This will ensure that the table is created with the correct partition statistics.

    DX-54938

DX-54670
  • During the reflection matching phase, for the filter pattern in some queries the planner could generate row expression nodes exponentially and exhaust heap memory.

  • Fixed an issue with concurrent metadata refresh requests that could result in the following error: StatusRuntimeException: ABORTED: Tried to create a dataset that already exists.

    DX-54644
DX-54468
  • Changes made to the columns displayed on the Jobs page, or the order of the columns, were not being saved after leaving the page.
DX-54312
  • In some environments, Dremio was unable to read a Parquet statistics file in Hive during logical planning, and the query was cancelled because planning phase exceeded 60 seconds.

  • Fixed an issue that was causing the error GandivaException: Failed to make LLVM module due to Function double abs(double) not supported yet for certain case expressions used as input arguments.

    DX-54273

DX-54194
  • When a materialization took too long to deserialize, the job updating the materialization cache entry could hang and block all reflection refreshes.
DX-54176, DX-54174, DX-54214
  • This release includes a number of fixes that resolve potential security issues.
DX-54122
  • For some users, when clicking on certain items on the Settings page, they were being redirected to the Dremio home screen.

  • Automatic reflection refreshes were failing with the following error: StatusRuntimeException: UNAVAILABLE: Channel shutdown invoked

    DX-53757

DX-53740
  • In rare cases, an issue in the planning phase could result in the same query returning different results depending on the query context.

  • Profiles for some reflection refreshes included unusually long setup times for WRITER_COMMITTER.

    DX-53735

  • Wait time for WRITER_COMMITTER was excessive for some reflection refreshes, even though no records were affected.
    DX-53734
  • After changing the engine configuration, some queries were failing with an IndexOutOfBoundsException error.
    DX-53358
DX-53211
  • When skipping the current record from any position, Dremio was not ignoring line delimiters inside quotes, resulting in unexpected query results.
DX-53061
  • Following the upgrade to Dremio 21.2, some Delta Lake tables could not be queried, and the same tables could not be formatted again after being unpromoted.

  • Fixed an issue handling CONVERT_FROM during reflection matching when the materialization cache was enabled.

    DX-52993

  • On occasion, projecting complex data types would result in a Schema change exception.
    DX-52840
  • Some queries on Parquet datasets in an ElasticSearch source were failing with a SCHEMA_CHANGE error, though there had been no changes to the schema.
    DX-52652
DX-52602
  • In some cases, deleted reflections were still being used to accelerate queries if the query plan had been cached previously.

  • Reflection refreshes were failing on ElasticSearch views that used the CONTAIN keyword.

    DX-52595

DX-52553
  • When a query that used a reflection was executed multiple times, some of the jobs used the reflection and some did not.

  • Clicking Edit Original SQL for a view in the SQL editor was producing a generic Something went wrong error.

    DX-52392

  • Fixed issue that was causing the LENGTH function to return incorrect results.
    DX-52352
DX-51567
  • Fixed an issue that was causing metadata refresh on some datasets to fail continuously.

  • Some queries were failing with INVALID_DATASET_METADATA ERROR: Unexpected mismatch of column names if duplicate columns resulted from a join because Dremio wasn't specifying column names.

DX-48273
  • If issues were encountered when running queries against a view, Dremio was returning an error that was unhelpful. The error returned now includes the root cause and identifies the specific view requiring attention.

  • When using the Catalog API to create a folder in a space, if the folder already existed in the space, the API was returning the HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error instead of HTTP/1.1 409 Conflict.

    DX-47372

DX-46632
  • Row count estimates for some Delta Lake tables were changing extensively, leading to single-threaded execution plans.

  • When a Hive source was added or modified, shared library files created in a new directory under /tmp were not being cleaned up and leading to disk space issues.

    DX-44588

DX-40891
  • In some cases, queries using the < operator would fail when trying to decode a timestamp column in a Parquet file.

  • JDBC clients could not see parent objects (folders, spaces, etc.) unless they had explicit SELECT privileges on those objects, even if they had permissions on a child object.
