Starburst Enterprise 382-e STS

Starburst Enterprise platform (SEP) 382-e STS is available for you all. And again we bring some exciting new features from Trino and our Starburst improvements.

The release is based on Trino 382, which includes the following noteworthy changes:

  • Exchange spooling on Google Cloud Storage.
  • Support for reading wildcard tables in BigQuery connector.
  • Support for adding columns in Delta Lake connector.
  • Support updating Iceberg table partitioning.
  • Improved INSERT performance in MySQL, Oracle and PostgreSQL connectors.
  • Basic authentication in Prometheus connector.

Specifically you can now test out fault-tolerant execution with exchange spooling on all three major cloud providers. We have been working tirelessly on this feature set in Trino, and are looking forward to offer this as a fully supported features to our SEP users in the future. Go ahead and try it out, and let us know of any features you miss, or issues you run into.

Since 380-e our built-in access control and data products are fully supported features. However we certainly did not stop to improve. Notably the documentation for the REST API for data products looks much nicer now and is also much more detailed and informative. And if you are a heavy user of built-in access control, you might want to read about the new support for SQL DENY statements.

As query editor user you are going to love the ability to run a query based on the position of your cursor. You can just type a query and press run. No more need to highlight the full query!

Kubernetes users can now use the newer 1.22 and 1.23 versions for their deployment, while users of the unsupported 1.18 have to upgrade.

As usual head over to the release notes and documentation for 382-e for more details.
