ClickHouse Release 19.17 

ClickHouse Release 19.17.6.36, 2019-12-27 

Bug Fix 

  • Fixed potential buffer overflow in decompress. Malicious user can pass fabricated compressed data that could cause read after buffer. This issue was found by Eldar Zaitov from Yandex information security team. #8404 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Fixed possible server crash (std::terminate) when the server cannot send or write data in JSON or XML format with values of String data type (that require UTF-8 validation) or when compressing result data with Brotli algorithm or in some other rare cases. #8384 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Fixed dictionaries with source from a clickhouse VIEW, now reading such dictionaries doesn’t cause the error There is no query. #8351 (Nikolai Kochetov)
  • Fixed checking if a client host is allowed by host_regexp specified in users.xml. #8241, #8342 (Vitaly Baranov)
  • RENAME TABLE for a distributed table now renames the folder containing inserted data before sending to shards. This fixes an issue with successive renames tableA->tableB, tableC->tableA. #8306 (tavplubix)
  • range_hashed external dictionaries created by DDL queries now allow ranges of arbitrary numeric types. #8275 (alesapin)
  • Fixed INSERT INTO table SELECT ... FROM mysql(...) table function. #8234 (tavplubix)
  • Fixed segfault in INSERT INTO TABLE FUNCTION file() while inserting into a file which doesn’t exist. Now in this case file would be created and then insert would be processed. #8177 (Olga Khvostikova)
  • Fixed bitmapAnd error when intersecting an aggregated bitmap and a scalar bitmap. #8082 (Yue Huang)
  • Fixed segfault when EXISTS query was used without TABLE or DICTIONARY qualifier, just like EXISTS t. #8213 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Fixed return type for functions rand and randConstant in case of nullable argument. Now functions always return UInt32 and never Nullable(UInt32). #8204 (Nikolai Kochetov)
  • Fixed DROP DICTIONARY IF EXISTS db.dict, now it doesn’t throw exception if db doesn’t exist. #8185 (Vitaly Baranov)
  • If a table wasn’t completely dropped because of server crash, the server will try to restore and load it #8176 (tavplubix)
  • Fixed a trivial count query for a distributed table if there are more than two shard local table. #8164 (小路)
  • Fixed bug that lead to a data race in DB::BlockStreamProfileInfo::calculateRowsBeforeLimit() #8143 (Alexander Kazakov)
  • Fixed ALTER table MOVE part executed immediately after merging the specified part, which could cause moving a part which the specified part merged into. Now it correctly moves the specified part. #8104 (Vladimir Chebotarev)
  • Expressions for dictionaries can be specified as strings now. This is useful for calculation of attributes while extracting data from non-ClickHouse sources because it allows to use non-ClickHouse syntax for those expressions. #8098 (alesapin)
  • Fixed a very rare race in clickhouse-copier because of an overflow in ZXid. #8088 (Ding Xiang Fei)
  • Fixed the bug when after the query failed (due to “Too many simultaneous queries” for example) it would not read external tables info, and the
    next request would interpret this info as the beginning of the next query causing an error like Unknown packet from client. #8084 (Azat Khuzhin)
  • Avoid null dereference after “Unknown packet X from server” #8071 (Azat Khuzhin)
  • Restore support of all ICU locales, add the ability to apply collations for constant expressions and add language name to system.collations table. #8051 (alesapin)
  • Number of streams for read from StorageFile and StorageHDFS is now limited, to avoid exceeding the memory limit. #7981 (alesapin)
  • Fixed CHECK TABLE query for *MergeTree tables without key. #7979 (alesapin)
  • Removed the mutation number from a part name in case there were no mutations. This removing improved the compatibility with older versions. #8250 (alesapin)
  • Fixed the bug that mutations are skipped for some attached parts due to their data_version are larger than the table mutation version. #7812 (Zhichang Yu)
  • Allow starting the server with redundant copies of parts after moving them to another device. #7810 (Vladimir Chebotarev)
  • Fixed the error “Sizes of columns doesn’t match” that might appear when using aggregate function columns. #7790 (Boris Granveaud)
  • Now an exception will be thrown in case of using WITH TIES alongside LIMIT BY. And now it’s possible to use TOP with LIMIT BY. #7637 (Nikita Mikhaylov)
  • Fix dictionary reload if it has invalidate_query, which stopped updates and some exception on previous update tries. #8029 (alesapin)

ClickHouse Release 19.17.4.11, 2019-11-22 

Backward Incompatible Change 

  • Using column instead of AST to store scalar subquery results for better performance. Setting enable_scalar_subquery_optimization was added in 19.17 and it was enabled by default. It leads to errors like this during upgrade to 19.17.2 or 19.17.3 from previous versions.

  • Fix ALTER TABLE ... UPDATE query for tables with enable_mixed_granularity_parts=1. #6543 (alesapin)
  • Fix bug opened by #4405 (since 19.4.0). Reproduces in queries to Distributed tables over MergeTree tables when we doesn’t query any columns (SELECT 1). #6236 (alesapin)
  • Fixed overflow in integer division of signed type to unsigned type. The behaviour was exactly as in C or C++ language (integer promotion rules) that may be surprising. Please note that the overflow is still possible when dividing large signed number to large unsigned number or vice-versa (but that case is less usual). The issue existed in all server versions. #6214 #6233 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Limit maximum sleep time for throttling when max_execution_speed or max_execution_speed_bytes is set. Fixed false errors like Estimated query execution time (inf seconds) is too long. #5547 #6232 (alexey-milovidov)

Improvement 

  • Correct implementation of ternary logic for AND/OR. #6048 (Alexander Kazakov)
  • Now values and rows with expired TTL will be removed after OPTIMIZE ... FINAL query from old parts without TTL infos or with outdated TTL infos, e.g. after ALTER ... MODIFY TTL query. Added queries SYSTEM STOP/START TTL MERGES to disallow/allow assign merges with TTL and filter expired values in all merges. #6274 (Anton Popov)
  • Possibility to change the location of ClickHouse history file for client using CLICKHOUSE_HISTORY_FILE env. #6840 (filimonov)
  • Remove dry_run flag from InterpreterSelectQuery. … #6375 (Nikolai Kochetov)
  • Support ASOF JOIN with ON section. #6211 (Artem Zuikov)

  • Enabled SIMDJSON for machines without AVX2 but with SSE 4.2 and PCLMUL instruction set. #6285 #6320 (alexey-milovidov)
  • ClickHouse can work on filesystems without O_DIRECT support (such as ZFS and BtrFS) without additional tuning. #4449 #6730 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Support push down predicate for final subquery. #6120 (TCeason) #6162 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Better JOIN ON keys extraction #6131 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Upated SIMDJSON. #6285. #6306 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Optimize selecting of smallest column for SELECT count() query. #6344 (Amos Bird)

  • Added optional message argument in throwIf. (#5772) #6329 (Vdimir)
  • Server exception got while sending insertion data is now being processed in client as well. #5891 #6711 (dimarub2000)
  • Added a metric DistributedFilesToInsert that shows the total number of files in filesystem that are selected to send to remote servers by Distributed tables. The number is summed across all shards. #6600 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Move most of JOINs prepare logic from ExpressionAction/ExpressionAnalyzer to AnalyzedJoin. #6785 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Fix TSan warning ‘lock-order-inversion’. #6740 (Vasily Nemkov)

  • When enable dumping temporary data to the disk to restrict memory usage during GROUP BY, ORDER BY, it didn’t check the free disk space. The fix add a new setting min_free_disk_space, when the free disk space it smaller then the threshold, the query will stop and throw ErrorCodes::NOT_ENOUGH_SPACE. #6678 (Weiqing Xu) #6691 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Removed recursive rwlock by thread. It makes no sense, because threads are reused between queries. SELECT query may acquire a lock in one thread, hold a lock from another thread and exit from first thread. In the same time, first thread can be reused by DROP query. This will lead to false “Attempt to acquire exclusive lock recursively” messages. #6771 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Split ExpressionAnalyzer.appendJoin(). Prepare a place in ExpressionAnalyzer for MergeJoin. #6524 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Added mysql_native_password authentication plugin to MySQL compatibility server. #6194 (Yuriy Baranov)
  • Less number of clock_gettime calls; fixed ABI compatibility between debug/release in Allocator (insignificant issue). #6197 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Move collectUsedColumns from ExpressionAnalyzer to SyntaxAnalyzer. SyntaxAnalyzer makes required_source_columns itself now. #6416 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Add setting joined_subquery_requires_alias to require aliases for subselects and table functions in FROM that more than one table is present (i.e. queries with JOINs). #6733 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Extract GetAggregatesVisitor class from ExpressionAnalyzer. #6458 (Artem Zuikov)
  • system.query_log: change data type of type column to Enum. #6265 (Nikita Mikhaylov)
  • Static linking of sha256_password authentication plugin. #6512 (Yuriy Baranov)
  • Avoid extra dependency for the setting compile to work. In previous versions, the user may get error like cannot open crti.o, unable to find library -lc etc. #6309 (alexey-milovidov)
  • More validation of the input that may come from malicious replica. #6303 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Now clickhouse-obfuscator file is available in clickhouse-client package. In previous versions it was available as clickhouse obfuscator (with whitespace). #5816 #6609 (dimarub2000)
  • Fixed deadlock when we have at least two queries that read at least two tables in different order and another query that performs DDL operation on one of tables. Fixed another very rare deadlock. #6764 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Added os_thread_ids column to system.processes and system.query_log for better debugging possibilities. #6763 (alexey-milovidov)
  • A workaround for PHP mysqlnd extension bugs which occur when sha256_password is used as a default authentication plugin (described in #6031). #6113 (Yuriy Baranov)
  • Remove unneeded place with changed nullability columns. #6693 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Set default value of queue_max_wait_ms to zero, because current value (five seconds) makes no sense. There are rare circumstances when this settings has any use. Added settings replace_running_query_max_wait_ms, kafka_max_wait_ms and connection_pool_max_wait_ms for disambiguation. #6692 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Extract SelectQueryExpressionAnalyzer from ExpressionAnalyzer. Keep the last one for non-select queries. #6499 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Removed duplicating input and output formats. #6239 (Nikolai Kochetov)
  • Allow user to override poll_interval and idle_connection_timeout settings on connection. #6230 (alexey-milovidov)
  • MergeTree now has an additional option ttl_only_drop_parts (disabled by default) to avoid partial pruning of parts, so that they dropped completely when all the rows in a part are expired. #6191 (Sergi Vladykin)
  • Type checks for set index functions. Throw exception if function got a wrong type. This fixes fuzz test with UBSan. #6511 (Nikita Vasilev)

Performance Improvement 

  • Optimize queries with ORDER BY expressions clause, where expressions have coinciding prefix with sorting key in MergeTree tables. This optimization is controlled by optimize_read_in_order setting. #6054 #6629 (Anton Popov)
  • Allow to use multiple threads during parts loading and removal. #6372 #6074 #6438 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Implemented batch variant of updating aggregate function states. It may lead to performance benefits. #6435 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Using FastOps library for functions exp, log, sigmoid, tanh. FastOps is a fast vector math library from Michael Parakhin (Yandex CTO). Improved performance of exp and log functions more than 6 times. The functions exp and log from Float32 argument will return Float32 (in previous versions they always return Float64). Now exp(nan) may return inf. The result of exp and log functions may be not the nearest machine representable number to the true answer. #6254 (alexey-milovidov) Using Danila Kutenin variant to make fastops working #6317 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Disable consecutive key optimization for UInt8/16. #6298 #6701 (akuzm)
  • Improved performance of simdjson library by getting rid of dynamic allocation in ParsedJson::Iterator. #6479 (Vitaly Baranov)
  • Pre-fault pages when allocating memory with mmap(). #6667 (akuzm)
  • Fix performance bug in Decimal comparison. #6380 (Artem Zuikov)

Build/Testing/Packaging Improvement 

Backward Incompatible Change 

  • Removed rarely used table function catBoostPool and storage CatBoostPool. If you have used this table function, please write email to [email protected]. Note that CatBoost integration remains and will be supported. #6279 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Disable ANY RIGHT JOIN and ANY FULL JOIN by default. Set any_join_distinct_right_table_keys setting to enable them. #5126 #6351 (Artem Zuikov)

  • Added previous declaration checks for MySQL 8 integration. #6569 (Rafael David Tinoco)

Security Fix 

  • Fix two vulnerabilities in codecs in decompression phase (malicious user can fabricate compressed data that will lead to buffer overflow in decompression). #6670 (Artem Zuikov)

ClickHouse Release 19.13.3.26, 2019-08-22 

Bug Fix 

  • Fix ALTER TABLE ... UPDATE query for tables with enable_mixed_granularity_parts=1. #6543 (alesapin)
  • Fix NPE when using IN clause with a subquery with a tuple. #6125 #6550 (tavplubix)
  • Fixed an issue that if a stale replica becomes alive, it may still have data parts that were removed by DROP PARTITION. #6522 #6523 (tavplubix)
  • Fixed issue with parsing CSV #6426 #6559 (tavplubix)
  • Fixed data race in system.parts table and ALTER query. This fixes #6245. #6513 (alexey-milovidov)

  • Fixed possible data loss after ALTER DELETE query on table with skipping index. #6224 #6282 (Nikita Vasilev)

Security Fix 

  • If the attacker has write access to ZooKeeper and is able to run custom server available from the network where ClickHouse run, it can create custom-built malicious server that will act as ClickHouse replica and register it in ZooKeeper. When another replica will fetch data part from malicious replica, it can force clickhouse-server to write to arbitrary path on filesystem. Found by Eldar Zaitov, information security team at Yandex. #6247 (alexey-milovidov)

ClickHouse Release 19.13.2.19, 2019-08-14 

New Feature 

  • Sampling profiler on query level. Example. #4247 (laplab) #6124 (alexey-milovidov) #6250 #6283 #6386
  • Allow to specify a list of columns with COLUMNS('regexp') expression that works like a more sophisticated variant of * asterisk. #5951 (mfridental), (alexey-milovidov)
  • CREATE TABLE AS table_function() is now possible #6057 (dimarub2000)
  • Adam optimizer for stochastic gradient descent is used by default in stochasticLinearRegression() and stochasticLogisticRegression() aggregate functions, because it shows good quality without almost any tuning. #6000 (Quid37)
  • Added functions for working with the сustom week number #5212 (Andy Yang)
  • RENAME queries now work with all storages. #5953 (Ivan)
  • Now client receive logs from server with any desired level by setting send_logs_level regardless to the log level specified in server settings. #5964 (Nikita Mikhaylov)

Backward Incompatible Change 

  • The setting input_format_defaults_for_omitted_fields is enabled by default. Inserts in Distributed tables need this setting to be the same on cluster (you need to set it before rolling update). It enables calculation of complex default expressions for omitted fields in JSONEachRow and CSV* formats. It should be the expected behavior but may lead to negligible performance difference. #6043 (Artem Zuikov), #5625 (akuzm)

Experimental Features 

  • New query processing pipeline. Use experimental_use_processors=1 option to enable it. Use for your own trouble. #4914 (Nikolai Kochetov)

Build/Testing/Packaging Improvement 

  • Report memory usage in performance tests. #5899 (akuzm)
  • Fix build with external libcxx #6010 (Ivan)
  • Fix shared build with rdkafka library #6101 (Ivan)

ClickHouse Release 19.11.9.52, 2019-09-6 

Security Fix 

  • If the attacker has write access to ZooKeeper and is able to run custom server available from the network where ClickHouse runs, it can create custom-built malicious server that will act as ClickHouse replica and register it in ZooKeeper. When another replica will fetch data part from malicious replica, it can force clickhouse-server to write to arbitrary path on filesystem. Found by Eldar Zaitov, information security team at Yandex. #6247 (alexey-milovidov)

ClickHouse Release 19.11.8.46, 2019-08-22

Build/Testing/Packaging Improvement 

Backward Incompatible Change 

  • Kafka is broken in this version.

ClickHouse Release 19.11.3.11, 2019-07-18 

New Feature 

  • Added support for prepared statements. #5331 (Alexander) #5630 (alexey-milovidov)
  • DoubleDelta and Gorilla column codecs #5600 (Vasily Nemkov)
  • Added os_thread_priority setting that allows to control the “nice” value of query processing threads that is used by OS to adjust dynamic scheduling priority. It requires CAP_SYS_NICE capabilities to work. This implements #5858 #5909 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Implement _topic, _offset, _key columns for Kafka engine #5382 (Ivan) Note that Kafka is broken in this version.
  • Add aggregate function combinator -Resample #5590 (hcz)

  • Add synonim arrayFlatten \<-> flatten #5764 (hcz)
  • Intergate H3 function geoToH3 from Uber. #4724 (Remen Ivan) #5805 (alexey-milovidov)

Bug Fix 

  • Implement DNS cache with asynchronous update. Separate thread resolves all hosts and updates DNS cache with period (setting dns_cache_update_period). It should help, when ip of hosts changes frequently. #5857 (Anton Popov)
  • Fix segfault in Delta codec which affects columns with values less than 32 bits size. The bug led to random memory corruption. #5786 (alesapin)
  • Fix segfault in TTL merge with non-physical columns in block. #5819 (Anton Popov)
  • Fix rare bug in checking of part with LowCardinality column. Previously checkDataPart always fails for part with LowCardinality column. #5832 (alesapin)
  • Avoid hanging connections when server thread pool is full. It is important for connections from remote table function or connections to a shard without replicas when there is long connection timeout. This fixes #5878 #5881 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Support for constant arguments to evalMLModel function. This fixes #5817 #5820 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Fixed the issue when ClickHouse determines default time zone as UCT instead of UTC. This fixes #5804. #5828 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Fixed buffer underflow in visitParamExtractRaw. This fixes #5901 #5902 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Now distributed DROP/ALTER/TRUNCATE/OPTIMIZE ON CLUSTER queries will be executed directly on leader replica. #5757 (alesapin)
  • Fix coalesce for ColumnConst with ColumnNullable + related changes. #5755 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Fix the ReadBufferFromKafkaConsumer so that it keeps reading new messages after commit() even if it was stalled before #5852 (Ivan)

  • Fixed heap-use-after-free ASan warning in ClusterCopier caused by watch which try to use already removed copier object. #5871 (Nikolai Kochetov)
  • Fixed wrong StringRef pointer returned by some implementations of IColumn::deserializeAndInsertFromArena. This bug affected only unit-tests. #5973 (Nikolai Kochetov)
  • Prevent source and intermediate array join columns of masking same name columns. #5941 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Fix insert and select query to MySQL engine with MySQL style identifier quoting. #5704 (Winter Zhang)
  • Now CHECK TABLE query can work with MergeTree engine family. It returns check status and message if any for each part (or file in case of simplier engines). Also, fix bug in fetch of a broken part. #5865 (alesapin)
  • Fix SPLIT_SHARED_LIBRARIES runtime #5793 (Danila Kutenin)
  • Fixed time zone initialization when /etc/localtime is a relative symlink like ../usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Moscow #5922 (alexey-milovidov)
  • clickhouse-copier: Fix use-after free on shutdown #5752 (proller)

  • Fix shutdown of SystemLogs #5802 (Anton Popov)
  • Fix hanging when condition in invalidate_query depends on a dictionary. #6011 (Vitaly Baranov)

Improvement 

  • Allow unresolvable addresses in cluster configuration. They will be considered unavailable and tried to resolve at every connection attempt. This is especially useful for Kubernetes. This fixes #5714 #5924 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Close idle TCP connections (with one hour timeout by default). This is especially important for large clusters with multiple distributed tables on every server, because every server can possibly keep a connection pool to every other server, and after peak query concurrency, connections will stall. This fixes #5879 #5880 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Better quality of topK function. Changed the SavingSpace set behavior to remove the last element if the new element have a bigger weight. #5833 #5850 (Guillaume Tassery)
  • URL functions to work with domains now can work for incomplete URLs without scheme #5725 (alesapin)
  • Checksums added to the system.parts_columns table. #5874 (Nikita Mikhaylov)
  • Added Enum data type as a synonim for Enum8 or Enum16. #5886 (dimarub2000)
  • Full bit transpose variant for T64 codec. Could lead to better compression with zstd. #5742 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Condition on startsWith function now can uses primary key. This fixes #5310 and #5882 #5919 (dimarub2000)
  • Allow to use clickhouse-copier with cross-replication cluster topology by permitting empty database name. #5745 (nvartolomei)
  • Use UTC as default timezone on a system without tzdata (e.g. bare Docker container). Before this patch, error message Could not determine local time zone was printed and server or client refused to start. #5827 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Returned back support for floating point argument in function quantileTiming for backward compatibility. #5911 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Show which table is missing column in error messages. #5768 (Ivan)
  • Disallow run query with same query_id by various users #5430 (proller)
  • More robust code for sending metrics to Graphite. It will work even during long multiple RENAME TABLE operation. #5875 (alexey-milovidov)
  • More informative error messages will be displayed when ThreadPool cannot schedule a task for execution. This fixes #5305 #5801 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Inverting ngramSearch to be more intuitive #5807 (Danila Kutenin)
  • Add user parsing in HDFS engine builder #5946 (akonyaev90)
  • Update default value of max_ast_elements parameter #5933 (Artem Konovalov)
  • Added a notion of obsolete settings. The obsolete setting allow_experimental_low_cardinality_type can be used with no effect. 0f15c01c6802f7ce1a1494c12c846be8c98944cd Alexey Milovidov

Performance Improvement 

  • Increase number of streams to SELECT from Merge table for more uniform distribution of threads. Added setting max_streams_multiplier_for_merge_tables. This fixes #5797 #5915 (alexey-milovidov)

Build/Testing/Packaging Improvement 

Backward Incompatible Change 

  • Kafka is broken in this version.
  • Enable adaptive_index_granularity = 10MB by default for new MergeTree tables. If you created new MergeTree tables on version 19.11+, downgrade to versions prior to 19.6 will be impossible. #5628 (alesapin)
  • Removed obsolete undocumented embedded dictionaries that were used by Yandex.Metrica. The functions OSIn, SEIn, OSToRoot, SEToRoot, OSHierarchy, SEHierarchy are no longer available. If you are using these functions, write email to [email protected]. Note: at the last moment we decided to keep these functions for a while. #5780 (alexey-milovidov)

ClickHouse Release 19.10 

ClickHouse Release 19.10.1.5, 2019-07-12 

New Feature 

  • Add new column codec: T64. Made for (U)IntX/EnumX/Data(Time)/DecimalX columns. It should be good for columns with constant or small range values. Codec itself allows enlarge or shrink data type without re-compression. #5557 (Artem Zuikov)
  • Add database engine MySQL that allow to view all the tables in remote MySQL server #5599 (Winter Zhang)
  • bitmapContains implementation. It’s 2x faster than bitmapHasAny if the second bitmap contains one element. #5535 (Zhichang Yu)
  • Support for crc32 function (with behaviour exactly as in MySQL or PHP). Do not use it if you need a hash function. #5661 (Remen Ivan)
  • Implemented SYSTEM START/STOP DISTRIBUTED SENDS queries to control asynchronous inserts into Distributed tables. #4935 (Winter Zhang)

Bug Fix 

  • Ignore query execution limits and max parts size for merge limits while executing mutations. #5659 (Anton Popov)

  • Fixed Incorrect size of index granularity errors #5720 (coraxster)
  • Fix Float to Decimal convert overflow #5607 (coraxster)
  • Flush buffer when WriteBufferFromHDFS’s destructor is called. This fixes writing into HDFS. #5684 (Xindong Peng)

Improvement 

  • Treat empty cells in CSV as default values when the setting input_format_defaults_for_omitted_fields is enabled. #5625 (akuzm)
  • Non-blocking loading of external dictionaries. #5567 (Vitaly Baranov)
  • Network timeouts can be dynamically changed for already established connections according to the settings. #4558 (Konstantin Podshumok)
  • Using “public_suffix_list” for functions firstSignificantSubdomain, cutToFirstSignificantSubdomain. It’s using a perfect hash table generated by gperf with a list generated from the file: https://publicsuffix.org/list/public_suffix_list.dat. (for example, now we recognize the domain ac.uk as non-significant). #5030 (Guillaume Tassery)
  • Adopted IPv6 data type in system tables; unified client info columns in system.processes and system.query_log #5640 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Using sessions for connections with MySQL compatibility protocol. #5476 #5646 (Yuriy Baranov)

  • Support <logger> section in clickhouse-local config file. #5540 (proller)
  • Allow run query with remote table function in clickhouse-local #5627 (proller)

Performance Improvement 

  • Add the possibility to write the final mark at the end of MergeTree columns. It allows to avoid useless reads for keys that are out of table data range. It is enabled only if adaptive index granularity is in use. #5624 (alesapin)
  • Improved performance of MergeTree tables on very slow filesystems by reducing number of stat syscalls. #5648 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Fixed performance degradation in reading from MergeTree tables that was introduced in version 19.6. Fixes #5631. #5633 (alexey-milovidov)

Build/Testing/Packaging Improvement 

  • Implemented TestKeeper as an implementation of ZooKeeper interface used for testing #5643 (alexey-milovidov) (levushkin aleksej)
  • From now on .sql tests can be run isolated by server, in parallel, with random database. It allows to run them faster, add new tests with custom server configurations, and be sure that different tests doesn’t affect each other. #5554 (Ivan)
  • Remove <name> and <metrics> from performance tests #5672 (Olga Khvostikova)
  • Fixed “select_format” performance test for Pretty formats #5642 (alexey-milovidov)

  • Fix INSERT into Distributed table with MATERIALIZED column #5429 (Azat Khuzhin)
  • Fix bad alloc when truncate Join storage #5437 (TCeason)
  • In recent versions of package tzdata some of files are symlinks now. The current mechanism for detecting default timezone gets broken and gives wrong names for some timezones. Now at least we force the timezone name to the contents of TZ if provided. #5443 (Ivan)
  • Fix some extremely rare cases with MultiVolnitsky searcher when the constant needles in sum are at least 16KB long. The algorithm missed or overwrote the previous results which can lead to the incorrect result of multiSearchAny. #5588 (Danila Kutenin)
  • Fix the issue when settings for ExternalData requests couldn’t use ClickHouse settings. Also, for now, settings date_time_input_format and low_cardinality_allow_in_native_format cannot be used because of the ambiguity of names (in external data it can be interpreted as table format and in the query it can be a setting). #5455 (Danila Kutenin)

New Features 

  • Added functions to work with JSON #4686 (hcz) #5124. (Vitaly Baranov)
  • Add a function basename, with a similar behaviour to a basename function, which exists in a lot of languages (os.path.basename in python, basename in PHP, etc…). Work with both an UNIX-like path or a Windows path. #5136 (Guillaume Tassery)
  • Added LIMIT n, m BY or LIMIT m OFFSET n BY syntax to set offset of n for LIMIT BY clause. #5138 (Anton Popov)
  • Added new data type SimpleAggregateFunction, which allows to have columns with light aggregation in an AggregatingMergeTree. This can only be used with simple functions like any, anyLast, sum, min, max. #4629 (Boris Granveaud)
  • Added support for non-constant arguments in function ngramDistance #5198 (Danila Kutenin)
  • Added functions skewPop, skewSamp, kurtPop and kurtSamp to compute for sequence skewness, sample skewness, kurtosis and sample kurtosis respectively. #5200 (hcz)

  • Added toValidUTF8 function, which replaces all invalid UTF-8 characters by replacement character � (U+FFFD). #5322 (Danila Kutenin)
  • Added format function. Formatting constant pattern (simplified Python format pattern) with the strings listed in the arguments. #5330 (Danila Kutenin)
  • Added system.detached_parts table containing information about detached parts of MergeTree tables. #5353 (akuzm)
  • Added ngramSearch function to calculate the non-symmetric difference between needle and haystack. #5418#5422 (Danila Kutenin)
  • Implementation of basic machine learning methods (stochastic linear regression and logistic regression) using aggregate functions interface. Has different strategies for updating model weights (simple gradient descent, momentum method, Nesterov method). Also supports mini-batches of custom size. #4943 (Quid37)
  • Implementation of geohashEncode and geohashDecode functions. #5003 (Vasily Nemkov)
  • Added aggregate function timeSeriesGroupSum, which can aggregate different time series that sample timestamp not alignment. It will use linear interpolation between two sample timestamp and then sum time-series together. Added aggregate function timeSeriesGroupRateSum, which calculates the rate of time-series and then sum rates together. #4542 (Yangkuan Liu)
  • Added functions IPv4CIDRtoIPv4Range and IPv6CIDRtoIPv6Range to calculate the lower and higher bounds for an IP in the subnet using a CIDR. #5095 (Guillaume Tassery)

Improvements 

  • Added max_parts_in_total setting for MergeTree family of tables (default: 100 000) that prevents unsafe specification of partition key #5166. #5171 (alexey-milovidov)
  • clickhouse-obfuscator: derive seed for individual columns by combining initial seed with column name, not column position. This is intended to transform datasets with multiple related tables, so that tables will remain JOINable after transformation. #5178 (alexey-milovidov)
  • Added functions JSONExtractRaw, JSONExtractKeyAndValues. Renamed functions jsonExtract<type> to JSONExtract<type>. When something goes wrong these functions return the correspondent values, not NULL. Modified function JSONExtract, now it gets the return type from its last parameter and doesn’t inject nullables. Implemented fallback to RapidJSON in case AVX2 instructions are not available. Simdjson library updated to a new version. #5235 (Vitaly Baranov)
  • Now if and multiIf functions don’t rely on the condition’s Nullable, but rely on the branches for sql compatibility. #5238 (Jian Wu)
  • In predicate now generates Null result from Null input like the Equal function. #5152 (Jian Wu)
  • Check the time limit every (flush_interval / poll_timeout) number of rows from Kafka. This allows to break the reading from Kafka consumer more frequently and to check the time limits for the top-level streams #5249 (Ivan)
  • Link rdkafka with bundled SASL. It should allow to use SASL SCRAM authentication #5253 (Ivan)
  • Batched version of RowRefList for ALL JOINS. #5267 (Artem Zuikov)

  • Add new setting kafka_commit_every_batch to regulate Kafka committing policy.
    It allows to set commit mode: after every batch of messages is handled, or after the whole block is written to the storage. It’s a trade-off between losing some messages or reading them twice in some extreme situations. #5308 (Ivan)
  • Make windowFunnel support other Unsigned Integer Types. #5320 (sundyli)
