Tips

Let's learn a weekly tip from Databend.

Databend Release & Maintenance

Release and maintenance are routine tasks for the Databend team, let's take a look at how the processes probably works.

Release channels

Databend release process following the 'release train' model used by e.g. Rust, Firefox and Chrome, as well as 'feature staging'.

Databend is in its early stages and we are only updating the nightly version number for now. We also release a minor version periodically, about 6 weeks, influenced by the iteration cycle.

For more information, please see databend.rs - Databend release channels.

Routine maintenance

Databend always tries to use newer toolchains and dependencies to ensure performance and reliability.

We currently have almost a thousand dependencies and have had to intervene manually in this process. If possible, it is essential to introduce a proper automatic batch upgrade mechanism with a rollback scheme.
