[2.1.0-GA] 2018-11-30

Upgrade caveat

  • TiDB 2.1 does not support downgrading to v2.0.x or earlier due to the adoption of the new storage engine
  • Parallel DDL is enabled in TiDB 2.1, so the clusters with TiDB version earlier than 2.0.1 cannot upgrade to 2.1 using rolling update. You can choose either of the following two options:
    • Stop the cluster and upgrade to 2.1 directly
    • Roll update to 2.0.1 or later 2.0.x versions, and then roll update to the 2.1 version
  • raft learner is enabled in TiDB 2.1 by default. If you upgrade the TiDB platform from 1.x to 2.1, stop the cluster before the upgrade. You can also roll update TiKV to 2.1 and then roll update PD to 2.1.
  • If you upgrade from TiDB 2.0.6 or earlier to TiDB 2.1, make sure if there is any ongoing DDL operation, especially the time consuming Add Index operation, because the DDL operations slow down the upgrading process.
