[ANNOUNCE] New JDBC 2.6.13 Driver for Apache Hive Released

Cloudera Employee
We are pleased to announce the release of Cloudera JDBC 2.6.13 driver for Apache Hive.
The release has the following fixes and enhancements:


Enhancements and New Features
  • [HIVEJ-566] The driver now supports Apache Hive versions 1.0.0 through 3.1, and CDH versions 5.10 through 5.16 and 6.0 through 6.3. 
  • [HIVEJ-604] The driver now supports Java 11. 
Resolved Issues
  • [00184182][HIVEJ-602] The driver logs incorrect socket timeout values. 
  • [00255458][HIVEJ-637] When the connection is not valid, the driver does not notify the ConnectionEventListener object as expected.
Known Issues 
The following are known issues that you may encounter due to limitations in the data source, the driver, or an application. 
  • [HIVEJ-577] The JDBC 4.0 version of the driver fails to connect to servers that require encryption using TLS 1.1 or later. When you attempt to connect to the server, the connection fails and the driver returns an SSL handshake exception. This issue occurs only when you run the driver using Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.0. As a workaround, run the driver using JRE 7.0 or 8.0.
Workflow Changes
See the Release Notes for the full list of upcoming workflow changes that may disrupt the established workflow of the drivers.
