Exciting news – this Volt Active Data v7.4 release has the first batch of contributions by our summer interns! Here are some of the improvements and features in the release:
- DR/XDCR – in a multi-cluster environment, you can now ask a cluster to drop out with 1 command, voltadmin dr drop. We also added a new DRPRODUCER stat to help you gauge how replication is flowing.
- Csvloader – now accepts files with non-UTF8 character sets. It also now allows unprintable characters as column separators – both intern contributions!
- sqlcmd can now batch multiple files, not just multiple statements- another intern contribution!
- Compatibility – You can now convert BigDecimal to Integer types (a nice feature when JDBC loading from other databases). Yet another intern contribution!
As always, a full accounting of features and fixes is available on our docs site in the Release Notes section.
