July 15, 2019

This page lists additions and changes in v19.1.3 since v19.1.2.


Cockroach Labs has discovered a bug relating to incremental backups, for CockroachDB v19.1.0 - v19.1.11. If a backup coincides with an in-progress index creation (backfill), RESTORE, or IMPORT, it is possible that a subsequent incremental backup will not include all of the indexed, restored or imported data.

For more information, including other affected versions, see Technical Advisory 63162.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed help text that erroneously labeled Encryption at Rest as experimental. #38237
  • Fixed an incorrect type mismatch error when empty ARRAY values are used as DEFAULT values (and potentially in other contexts). #38300
  • Fixed a panic that could occur when decoding decimals as query parameters. #38330
  • NULLs are now correctly handled by MIN, SUM, and AVG when used as window functions. #38356
  • Fixed an issue that prevented restoring some backups if they included tables that were partitioned by columns of a certain types while also interleaved by child tables. #38494
  • Fixed possible deadlock when storage engine write fails. #38478
  • Fixed potential reappearance of deleted timeseries data, which could trip the consistency checker. #38478
  • Removed dependency on sync_file_range on Linux platforms on which it returns ENOSYS, such as WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux). #38478
  • Nodes that have been down now recover quicker when they rejoin, assuming they weren't down for much more than the value of the server.time_until_store_dead cluster setting (which defaults to 5 minutes). #38642
  • Checking the "skip should queue" checkbox in the Manual Enqueue Range advanced debuggging page now works for the GC Queue. #38296
  • The YCSB workload no longer ignores the --dboption. #38238
