[ANNOUNCE] Packages and Parcels for Apache Kudu 1.4.0 / CDH 5.12.1 Released

Cloudera Employee

Cloudera is happy to announce the availability of parcels and packages for Apache Kudu 1.4.0 / CDH 5.12.1. Apache Kudu 1.4.0 / CDH 5.12.1 is a bug fix release, with no new features or backwards incompatible changes.


To upgrade Kudu to 1.4.0 / CDH 5.12.1, see Upgrade Parcels or Upgrade Packages.


Issues Fixed in Kudu 1.4.0 / CDH 5.12.1:


  • KUDU-2085 - Fixed a bug that caused crashes when seeking past the end of prefix-encoded blocks.
  • KUDU-2087 - Fixed an issue where Kudu would fail to start when Kerberos was enabled in FreeIPA-configured deployments.
  • KUDU-2053 - Fixed a race condition in the Java RequestTracker.
  • KUDU-2049 - Fixed an issue where scans on RLE-encoded integer columns would sometimes cause CHECK failures due to the CHECK condition being too strict.
  • KUDU-2052 - Kudu now uses XFS_IOC_UNRESVSP64 ioctl to punch holes on xfs filesystems. This fixes an issue with slow startup times on xfs when hole punching was done via fallocate().
  • KUDU-1956 - Kudu will no longer crash if faced with a race condition when selecting rowsets for compaction.

For a complete list of changes, bug fixes, and known issues, see the Kudu 1.4.0 / CDH 5.12.1 Release Notes.
