The following issue are fixed in this release (with an open-source reference):

  • CQL Conflict resolution: compare_cells_for_merge may wrongly prefer an expired cell over a live and expiring one #14182. Before this fix, when two cells have the same write timestamp and both are alive or expiring, we compare their value first, before checking if either of them is expiring and if both are expiring, comparing their expiration time and TTL value to determine which of them will expire later or was written later. This was based on an early version of Cassandra. However, the Cassandra implementation rightfully changed in CASSANDRA-14592, where the cell expiration is considered before the cell value. See update-ordering in Scylla docs for more.
  • Setup: scylla_prepare: generating wrong perftune.yaml that could not run clocksource setting #7672
  • Setup: scylla-fstrim.timer is enabled but not started #14249
  • Setup: perftune.py: Error on parsing CPU mask seastar#1179
  • Setup: The installer now wipes filesystem signatures from the individual disks making up a RAID array, preventing problems with reuse of disks. #13737
  • Stability: mutation_reader_merger can overflow stack when merging many empty readers. This may happen when running a second repair right after the other. #14415
