10.18.2023 Release Notes

These are the release notes for October 18, 2023

✨ ENHANCEMENTS ✨

  • Gen2 environments
    • Snowflake, Databricks, and BigQuery Data Planes
      • We've released the Fingerprint Override Functionality for components on these data planes!
      • Enabling the Fingerprint Override Functionality allows for more control in advanced or special scenarios when users wish to fine-tune how code changes affect data reprocessing.
      • Learn more about this advanced feature here.
      • We previously supported this feature in Gen1 environments, and have now brought it to Gen2. If you are migrating from Gen1 to Gen2, you'll now have this feature available!

🔧 BUGFIXES 🔧

  • All environments (Gen1/Gen2)
    • Python ModuleNotFoundError is now Retryable:
      • There are ephemeral errors sometimes when Python modules fail to load. This can happen for packages pre-installed in Ascend's Docker images or dynamic modules (such as user-defined functions/UDFs).
      • We made these errors retryable, which means they will most likely resolve without an impact to the user.
    • Fix an issue that was preventing the Records Preview on Components from rendering the records correctly.
    • Prevent some cases of components getting stuck in the Running state by adding a timeout to internal infrastructure API requests made by the Ascend Cluster manager.
