Teiid 8.12.4 has been released.  A somewhat large change is that there is now a new Redshift translator available to account for differences between Redshift and Postgres.  All issues addressed:

  • [TEIID-3874] - Invalid source query for subquery referencing a common table
  • [TEIID-3879] - Error during state transfer prevents a node from loading later
  • [TEIID-3880] - Missing dependency in "org.apache.olingo" module
  • [TEIID-3882] - Unable to convert Geometry Collection to GeoJSON
  • [TEIID-3884] - Queries with NextToken failing with NPE
  • [TEIID-3885] - Redshift - conversion to time does not work
  • [TEIID-3886] - Redshift - query ends with error message "Query cancelled on user's request"
  • [TEIID-3887] - Redshift - RS does not support ASCII function
  • [TEIID-3888] - Redshift - there is not function SUBSTR (RS uses SUBSTRING)
  • [TEIID-3889] - asynch start transaction / rollback throws exception
  • [TEIID-3891] - MetadataFactory create function from method does not account for primitive return types
  • [TEIID-3892] - There is no pg type for geometry
  • [TEIID-3895] - OData - metadata returns primary key with attribute "Nullable=true"
  • [TEIID-3897] - dimensional check for ewkb is incorrect
  • [TEIID-3900] - OData - malformed URL causes NPE
  • [TEIID-3876] - Add an option to import RowId as binary
  • [TEIID-3899] - Allow Web Services translator to retrieve metadata without source connection
  • [TEIID-3270] - Allow UDFs to call Teiid functions
  • [TEIID-3419] - Add ability to set a default role across all VDBs
  • [TEIID-3870] - Add ability to properly qualify package objects
  • [TEIID-3890] - Add a redshift translator
  • [TEIID-3865] - too much logging of source cancel
  • [TEIID-3866] - with clause used by subquery repeated in the subquery
  • [TEIID-3875] - Many info messages upon startup that start with: TEIID31173 Inherent
  • [TEIID-3893] - Handling of binary odbc parameters needs improved
  • [TEIID-3896] - When error occurs in the materialization process, an ERROR should be logged instead of DEBUG
  • [TEIID-3901] - MetadataFactory should account for user defined aggregate functions
This should be the last release on the 8.12.x line.  Expect another Teiid 8.13 CR shortly - with a final release by the end of next week.  From there fixes will be available on the 8.13 line.  Teiid 8.13 has support for Wildfly 9.0.2 support, but no new feature work so that it provides a transitional release into Teiid 9.  Teiid 9.0 Alpha is still expected by the end of January.
