We are pleased to announce the release of Cloudera ODBC 2.6.8 driver for Apache Impala. The release has the following fixes and enhancements:
Enhancements and New Features
The following are known issues that you may encounter due to limitations in the data source, the driver, or an application.
Limited Support for BINARY, DATE, and TIME data types.
The following changes may disrupt workflows from earlier versions
[IMP-680] Removed support for earlier versions of Impala and CDH
Beginning with this release, the driver no longer supports Impala 1.0.1 to 2.6 and CDH 5.0 to 5.8. For a list of support versions, see the Installation and Configuration Guide.
Minimum TLS Version
Beginning with this release, the driver requires a minimum version of TLS for encrypting the data store connection. By default, the driver requires TLS version 1.2. This requirement may cause existing DSNs and connection strings to stop working, if they are used to connect to data stores that use a TLS version earlier than 1.2.
To resolve this, in your DSN or connection string, set the Minimum TLS option (the Min_TLS property) to the appropriate version of TLS for your server. For more information, see the Installation and Configuration Guide.
