Big changes

Below is a list of some major changes that we don't want you to miss.



Bug fixes


Let's learn a weekly tip from Databend.

New datatype system design

We need to redesign the datatype system because current implementation had some shortcomes.

Now, DataType is an enum type:

  • We must use specific type after matching.
  • We can't use it as generic argument.
  • It may involve some nested datatypes.
  • And hard to put attributes into it.

Want to find out how we will improve the DataType system? Please check the RFC - New datatype system design.

Plan to jump to specific implementation and track progress? Databend#3794 might be for you.
