ClickHouse release 21.1 

ClickHouse release v21.1.2.15-stable 2021-01-18 

Backward Incompatible Change 

  • The setting input_format_null_as_default is enabled by default. #17525 (alexey-milovidov).
  • Check settings constraints for profile settings from config. Server will fail to start if users.xml contain settings that do not meet corresponding constraints. #18486 (tavplubix).
  • Restrict ALTER MODIFY SETTING from changing storage settings that affects data parts (write_final_mark and enable_mixed_granularity_parts). #18306 (Amos Bird).
  • Set insert_quorum_parallel to 1 by default. It is significantly more convenient to use than "sequential" quorum inserts. But if you rely to sequential consistency, you should set the setting back to zero. #17567 (alexey-milovidov).
  • Remove sumburConsistentHash function. This closes #18120. #18656 (alexey-milovidov).
  • Removed aggregate functions timeSeriesGroupSum, timeSeriesGroupRateSum because a friend of mine said they never worked. This fixes #16869. If you have luck using these functions, write a email to [email protected]. #17423 (alexey-milovidov).
  • Prohibit toUnixTimestamp(Date()) (before it just returns UInt16 representation of Date). #17376 (Azat Khuzhin).
  • Allow using extended integer types (Int128, Int256, UInt256) in avg and avgWeighted functions. Also allow using different types (integer, decimal, floating point) for value and for weight in avgWeighted function. This is a backward-incompatible change: now the avg and avgWeighted functions always return Float64 (as documented). Before this change the return type for Decimal arguments was also Decimal. #15419 (Mike).
  • Expression toUUID(N) no longer works. Replace with toUUID('00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'). This change is motivated by non-obvious results of toUUID(N) where N is non zero.
  • SSL Certificates with incorrect "key usage" are rejected. In previous versions they are used to work. See #19262.

New Feature 

  • Implement gRPC protocol in ClickHouse. #15111 (Vitaly Baranov).
  • Allow to use multiple zookeeper clusters. #17070 (fastio).
  • Implemented REPLACE TABLE and CREATE OR REPLACE TABLE queries. #18521 (tavplubix).
  • Implement UNION DISTINCT and treat the plain UNION clause as UNION DISTINCT by default. Add a setting union_default_mode that allows to treat it as UNION ALL or require explicit mode specification. #16338 (flynn).
  • Added function accurateCastOrNull. This closes #10290. Add type conversions in x IN (subquery) expressions. This closes #10266. #16724 (Maksim Kita).
  • IP Dictionary supports IPv4 / IPv6 types directly. #17571 (vdimir).
  • IP Dictionary supports key fetching. Resolves #18241. #18480 (vdimir).
  • Add *.zst compression/decompression support for data import and export. It enables using *.zst in file() function and Content-encoding: zstd in HTTP client. This closes #16791 . #17144 (Abi Palagashvili).
  • Added mannWitneyUTest, studentTTest and welchTTest aggregate functions. Refactored rankCorr a bit. #16883 (Nikita Mikhaylov).
  • Add functions countMatches/countMatchesCaseInsensitive. #17459 (Azat Khuzhin).
  • Implement countSubstrings()/countSubstringsCaseInsensitive()/countSubstringsCaseInsensitiveUTF8() (Count the number of substring occurrences). #17347 (Azat Khuzhin).
  • Add information about used databases, tables and columns in system.query_log. Add query_kind and normalized_query_hash fields. #17726 (Amos Bird).
  • Add a setting optimize_on_insert. When enabled, do the same transformation for INSERTed block of data as if merge was done on this block (e.g. Replacing, Collapsing, Aggregating...). This setting is enabled by default. This can influence Materialized View and MaterializeMySQL behaviour (see detailed description). This closes #10683. #16954 (Kruglov Pavel).
  • Kerberos Authenticaiton for HDFS. #16621 (Ilya Golshtein).
  • Support SHOW SETTINGS statement to show parameters in system.settings. SHOW CHANGED SETTINGS and LIKE/ILIKE clause are also supported. #18056 (Jianmei Zhang).
  • Function position now supports POSITION(needle IN haystack) synax for SQL compatibility. This closes #18701. ... #18779 (Jianmei Zhang).
  • Now we have a new storage setting max_partitions_to_read for tables in the MergeTree family. It limits the max number of partitions that can be accessed in one query. A user setting force_max_partition_limit is also added to enforce this constraint. #18712 (Amos Bird).
  • Add query_id column to system.part_log for inserted parts. Closes #10097. #18644 (flynn).
  • Allow create table as select with columns specification. Example CREATE TABLE t1 (x String) ENGINE = Memory AS SELECT 1;. #18060 (Maksim Kita).
  • Added arrayMin, arrayMax, arrayAvg aggregation functions. #18032 (Maksim Kita).
  • Implemented ATTACH TABLE name FROM 'path/to/data/' (col1 Type1, ... query. It creates new table with provided structure and attaches table data from provided directory in user_files. #17903 (tavplubix).
  • Add mutation support for StorageMemory. This closes #9117. #15127 (flynn).
  • Support syntax EXISTS DATABASE name. #18458 (Du Chuan).
  • Support builtin function isIPv4String && isIPv6String like MySQL. #18349 (Du Chuan).
  • Add a new setting insert_distributed_one_random_shard = 1 to allow insertion into multi-sharded distributed table without any distributed key. #18294 (Amos Bird).
  • Add settings min_compress_block_size and max_compress_block_size to MergeTreeSettings, which have higher priority than the global settings and take effect when they are set. close 13890. #17867 (flynn).
  • Add support for 64bit roaring bitmaps. #17858 (Andy Yang).
  • Extended OPTIMIZE ... DEDUPLICATE syntax to allow explicit (or implicit with asterisk/column transformers) list of columns to check for duplicates on. ... #17846 (Vasily Nemkov).
  • Added functions toModifiedJulianDay, fromModifiedJulianDay, toModifiedJulianDayOrNull, and fromModifiedJulianDayOrNull. These functions convert between Proleptic Gregorian calendar date and Modified Julian Day number. #17750 (PHO).
  • Add ability to use custom TLD list: added functions firstSignificantSubdomainCustom, cutToFirstSignificantSubdomainCustom. #17748 (Azat Khuzhin).
  • Add support for PROXYv1 protocol to wrap native TCP interface. Allow quotas to be keyed by proxy-forwarded IP address (applied for PROXYv1 address and for X-Forwarded-For from HTTP interface). This is useful when you provide access to ClickHouse only via trusted proxy (e.g. CloudFlare) but want to account user resources by their original IP addresses. This fixes #17268. #17707 (alexey-milovidov).
  • Now clickhouse-client supports opening EDITOR to edit commands. Alt-Shift-E. #17665 (Amos Bird).
  • Add function encodeXMLComponent to escape characters to place string into XML text node or attribute. #17659 (nauta).
  • Introduce DETACH TABLE/VIEW ... PERMANENTLY syntax, so that after restarting the table does not reappear back automatically on restart (only by explicit request). The table can still be attached back using the short syntax ATTACH TABLE. Implements #5555. Fixes #13850. #17642 (filimonov).
  • Add asynchronous metrics on total amount of rows, bytes and parts in MergeTree tables. This fix #11714. #17639 (flynn).
  • Add settings limit and offset for out-of-SQL pagination: #16176 They are useful for building APIs. These two settings will affect SELECT query as if it is added like select * from (your_original_select_query) t limit xxx offset xxx;. #17633 (hexiaoting).
  • Provide a new aggregator combinator : -SimpleState to build SimpleAggregateFunction types via query. It's useful for defining MaterializedView of AggregatingMergeTree engine, and will benefit projections too. #16853 (Amos Bird).
  • Added queries-file parameter for clickhouse-client and clickhouse-local. #15930 (Maksim Kita).
  • Added query parameter for clickhouse-benchmark. #17832 (Maksim Kita).
  • EXPLAIN AST now support queries other then SELECT. #18136 (taiyang-li).

Experimental Feature 

  • Added functions for calculation of minHash and simHash of text n-grams and shingles. They are intended for semi-duplicate search. Also functions bitHammingDistance and tupleHammingDistance are added. #7649 (flynn).
  • Add new data type Map. See #1841. First version for Map only supports String type of key and value. #15806 (hexiaoting).
  • Implement alternative SQL parser based on ANTLR4 runtime and generated from EBNF grammar. #11298 (Ivan).

Performance Improvement 

  • New IP Dictionary implementation with lower memory consumption, improved performance for some cases, and fixed bugs. #16804 (vdimir).
  • Parallel formatting for data export. #11617 (Nikita Mikhaylov).
  • LDAP integration: Added verification_cooldown parameter in LDAP server connection configuration to allow caching of successful "bind" attempts for configurable period of time. #15988 (Denis Glazachev).
  • Add --no-system-table option for clickhouse-local to run without system tables. This avoids initialization of DateLUT that may take noticeable amount of time (tens of milliseconds) at startup. #18899 (alexey-milovidov).
  • Replace PODArray with PODArrayWithStackMemory in AggregateFunctionWindowFunnelData to improve windowFunnel function performance. #18817 (flynn).

  • Support SHOW CREATE VIEW name syntax like MySQL. #18095 (Du Chuan).
  • All queries of type Decimal * Float or vice versa are allowed, including aggregate ones (e.g. SELECT sum(decimal_field * 1.1) or SELECT dec_col * float_col), the result type is Float32 or Float64. #18145 (Mike).
  • Improved minimal Web UI: add history; add sharing support; avoid race condition of different requests; add request in-flight and ready indicators; add favicon; detect Ctrl+Enter if textarea is not in focus. #17293 #17770 (alexey-milovidov).
  • clickhouse-server didn't send close request to ZooKeeper server. #16837 (alesapin).
