Issue fixed in this release:

  • Correctness: Inserted data only becomes available after restart. The root cause is a very rare bug in the cache, which is hidden (in most cases) by replication and reconciliation #16759. Thanks to user rngcntr for reporting and helping debug it.
  • Stability: Adding a column to the base table should invalidate prepared statements for views #16392
  • Stability: Bootstrap fails due to inconsistent schema after group0 catch up when table was recreated in the past, in an older version of Scylla #16683
  • Stability: save memory by making regular compaction tasks internal #16735
  • Stability: mintimeuuid() call with large negative timestamps may crash ScyllaDB. #17035
