Databricks Runtime releases

Databricks Runtime 14.3

See Databricks Runtime 14.3 LTS.

  • May 30, 2024

  • May 7, 2024

    • (Behavior change) applyInPandas and mapInPandas UDF types are now supported on shared access mode compute running Databricks Runtime 14.3 and above.

  • April 25, 2024

    • [SPARK-47543][CONNECT][PYTHON] Inferring dict as MapType from Pandas DataFrame to allow DataFrame creation

    • Operating system security updates.

  • April 6, 2024

    • (Behavior change) To ensure consistent behavior across compute types, PySpark UDFs on shared clusters now match the behavior of UDFs on no-isolation and assigned clusters. This update includes the following changes that might break existing code:

      • UDFs with a string return type no longer implicitly convert non-string values into string values. Previously, UDFs with a return type of str would wrap the return value with a str() function regardless of the actual data type of the returned value.

      • UDFs with timestamp return types no longer implicitly apply a conversion to timestamp with timezone.

      • The Spark cluster configurations spark.databricks.sql.externalUDF.* no longer apply to PySpark UDFs on shared clusters.

      • The Spark cluster configuration spark.databricks.safespark.externalUDF.plan.limit no longer affects PySpark UDFs, removing the Public Preview limitation of 5 UDFs per query for PySpark UDFs.

      • The Spark cluster configuration spark.databricks.safespark.sandbox.size.default.mib no longer applies to PySpark UDFs on shared clusters. Instead, available memory on the system is used. To limit the memory of PySpark UDFs, use spark.databricks.pyspark.udf.isolation.memoryLimit with a minimum value of 100m.

    • The TimestampNTZ data type is now supported as a clustering column with liquid clustering. See Use liquid clustering for Delta tables.

    • Improve the performance of incremental updates with SHALLOW CLONE Iceberg and Parquet.

    • Fixed an issue in Auto Loader where different source file formats were inconsistent when the provided schema did not include inferred partitions. This issue could cause unexpected failures when reading files with missing columns in the inferred partition schema.

    • Parquet scans are now robust against OOMs when scanning exceptionally structured files by dynamically adjusting batch size. File metadata is analyzed to preemptively lower batch size and is lowered again on task retries as a final safety net.

    • If an Avro file was read with just the failOnUnknownFields\ option or with Auto Loader in the failOnNewColumns\ schema evolution mode, columns that have different data types would be read as null\ instead of throwing an error stating that the file cannot be read. These reads now fail and recommend users to use the rescuedDataColumn\ option.

    • Auto Loader now does the following.

      • Correctly reads and no longer rescues Integer, Short, and Byte types if one of these data types is provided, but the Avro file suggests one of the other two types.

      • Prevents reading interval types as date or time stamp types to avoid getting corrupt dates.

      • Prevents reading Decimal types with lower precision.

    • [SPARK-43172] Exposes host and token from Spark connect client.

    • [SPARK-43293] __qualified_access_only is ignored in normal columns.

    • Operating system security updates.

  • April 25, 2023

    • If a Parquet file was read with just the failOnUnknownFields option or with Auto Loader in the failOnNewColumns schema evolution mode, columns that had different data types would be read as null instead of throwing an error stating that the file cannot be read. These reads now fail and recommend users to use the rescuedDataColumn option.

    • Auto Loader now correctly reads and no longer rescues Integer, Short, and Byte types if one of these data types is provided. The Parquet file suggests one of the other two types. When the rescued data column was previously enabled, the data type mismatch would cause columns to be saved even though they were readable.

    • [SPARK-43009] Parameterized sql() with Any constants

    • [SPARK-42928] Makes resolvePersistentFunction synchronized.

    • [SPARK-42936] Fixes LCan issue when the clause can be resolved directly by its child aggregate.

    • [SPARK-42967] Fixes SparkListenerTaskStart.stageAttemptId when a task starts after the stage is canceled.

    • Operating system security updates.

  • March 29, 2023

    • Databricks SQL now supports specifying default values for columns of Delta Lake tables, either at table creation time or afterward. Subsequent INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, and MERGE commands can refer to any column’s default value using the explicit DEFAULT keyword. In addition, if any INSERT assignment has an explicit list of fewer columns than the target table, corresponding column default values are substituted for the remaining columns (or NULL if no default is specified).

      For example:

      CREATE TABLE t (first INT, second DATE DEFAULT CURRENT_DATE()) USING delta;
      INSERT INTO t VALUES (0, DEFAULT);
      INSERT INTO t VALUES (1, DEFAULT);
      SELECT first, second FROM t;
      \> 0, 2023-03-28
      1, 2023-03-28z
      
    • Auto Loader now initiates at least one synchronous RocksDB log cleanup for Trigger.AvailableNow streams to check that the checkpoint can get regularly cleaned up for fast-running Auto Loader streams. This can cause some streams to take longer before they shut down, but it will save you storage costs and improve the Auto Loader experience in future runs.

    • You can now modify a Delta table to add support to table features using DeltaTable.addFeatureSupport(feature_name).

    • [SPARK-42794] Increase the lockAcquireTimeoutMs to 2 minutes for acquiring the RocksDB state store in Structure Streaming

    • [SPARK-42521] Add NULLs for INSERTs with user-specified lists of fewer columns than the target table

    • [SPARK-42702][SPARK-42623] Support parameterized query in subquery and CTE

    • [SPARK-42668] Catch exception while trying to close the compressed stream in HDFSStateStoreProvider stop

    • [SPARK-42403] JsonProtocol should handle null JSON strings

  • March 8, 2023

    • The error message “Failure to initialize configuration” has been improved to provide more context for the customer.

    • There is a terminology change for adding features to a Delta table using the table property. The preferred syntax is now 'delta.feature.featureName'='supported' instead of 'delta.feature.featureName'='enabled'. For backward compatibility, using 'delta.feature.featureName'='enabled' still works and will continue to work.

    • Starting from this release, it is possible to create/replace a table with an additional table property delta.ignoreProtocolDefaults to ignore protocol-related Spark configs, which includes default reader and writer versions and table features supported by default.

    • [SPARK-42070] Change the default value of the argument of the Mask function from -1 to NULL
