We are pleased to announce the release of Hive JDBC v2.6.5. The release has the following fixes and enhancements:
[HIVEJ-534] If a SQL query ends in a semicolon, the driver reports an error. This issue has been resolved. The driver now removes trailing semicolons from queries before sending them to the server.
The following are breaking changes to driver functionality. Thee changes may cause some workflow from earlier versions of the driver to fail.
2.6.1 - Removed support for JDBC 3 (Java 5). Beginning with this release, the driver no longer supports JDBC 3 (Java 5). Only JDBC 4 (Java 6) and JDBC 4.1 (Java 7) are supported
