Druid contains only one change since Druid 0.9.1, #3204, which addresses a bug with the Coordinator web console. The full list of changes for the Druid 0.9.1 line is here: https://github.com/druid-io/druid/issues?q=milestone%3A0.9.1+is%3Aclosed

Updating from 0.9.0

Query time lookups

Query time lookup (QTL) functionality has been substantially reworked in this release. Most users will need to update their configurations and queries.

The druid-namespace-lookup extension is now deprecated, and will be removed in a future version of Druid. Users should migrate to the new druid-lookups-cached-global extension. Both extensions can be loaded simultaneously to simplify migration. For details about migrating, see Transitioning to lookups-cached-global in the documentation.

Other notes

Aside from the QTL changes, please note the following changes:

  • The default value for maxRowsInMemory has been set to 75,000 across the board for all forms of ingestion. This is in line with previous defaults for Hadoop tasks and Tranquility-based ingestion. If you were creating realtime index tasks directly (without Tranquility) then this is lower than the previous default of 500,000.
  • The /druid/coordinator/v1/datasources/{dataSourceName}?kill=true&interval={myISO8601Interval} REST endpoint is now deprecated. The new /druid/coordinator/v1/datasources/{dataSourceName}/intervals/{interval}?kill=true REST endpoint can be used instead.
  • The druid.indexer.runner.separateIngestionEndpoint property is now deprecated. If you were using this functionality to isolate event-push requests and query serving requests for realtime tasks, you can accomplish something similar with druid.indexer.server.maxChatRequests.
  • For developers of Druid extensions, note that the QueryGranularity constants (ALL, NONE, etc) have been moved to io.druid.granularity.QueryGranularities in #2980. Query syntax is not affected.

Rolling updates

The standard Druid update process described by http://druid.io/docs/ should be followed for rolling updates.

Kafka Supervisor

Druid 0.9.1 is the first version to include the experimental Kafka indexing service, utilizing a new Kafka-type indexing task and a supervisor that runs within the Druid overlord. The Kafka indexing service provides an exactly-once ingestion guarantee and does not have the restriction of events requiring timestamps which fall within a window period. More details about this feature are available in the documentation: http://druid.io/docs/

Note: The Kafka indexing service uses the Java Kafka consumer that was introduced in Kafka 0.9. As there were protocol changes made in this version, Kafka 0.9 consumers are not compatible with older brokers and you will need to ensure that your Kafka brokers are version 0.9 or better. Details on upgrading to the latest version of Kafka can be found here: http://kafka.apache.org/documentation.html#upgrade
