SQL language changes

Command-line changes

  • The new cockroach workload command provides various generators for data and query loads. #28978

Bug fixes

  • Fixed support for the --http-host flag, which was broken in previous 2.1 beta releases. #29220

  • The unnest and _pg_expandarray functions now return an error when called with NULL as the first argument. #29385
  • Fixed a crash caused by JSON values and operations that use arrays. #29432
  • Fixed a rare crash with the message no err but aborted txn proto. #29456
  • Fixed a crash caused by SQL statements containing ->(NULL::STRING). #29414
