Last week in scylladb.git master (issue #232; 2024-06-02)

This short report brings to light some interesting commits to scylladb.git master from the last week. Commits in the de798775fd…5b4e688668 range are covered.

There were 113 non-merge commits from 16 authors in that period. Some notable commits:

Previously, we moved the tables backing authentication to be under Raft management, and moved them from the system_auth keyspace to the system_auth_v2 keyspace. To simplify things further, the authentication tables are moved to the system keyspace.

It is now possible to change the replication factor of keyspaces using tablets.

The tablets feature has been marked as generally available, and removed from the list of experimental features. It is now available by default. Note it still has limitations in interacting with other features.

The memory allowance for bloom filters has been increased from 10% to 20%, recognizing that some workloads need more memory for bloom filters.

See you in the next issue of last week in scylladb.git master!
