Release 434-e STS (2 Feb 2024)#

Starburst Enterprise platform (SEP) 434-e is the follow up release to the 433-e version. It includes all improvements from the Trino 434 release.

This release is a short term support (STS) release.


This release contains a known issue that causes cluster startup to fail when Starburst Warp Speed is in use for Delta Lake or Iceberg catalogs while the cluster is secured with Apache Ranger. As a temporary fix to this problem, remove the hive.s3.iam-role catalog configuration property and replace it with the following catalog configuration properties, replacing xxx with the appropriate S3 IAM role contents:


This is a temporary workaround that is only necessary for 434-e. You must remove this workaround when upgrading from 434-e to future releases.

Breaking changes#

  • This release introduces some security fixes in Trino that restrict users’ ability to create new Iceberg materialized views with Glue while using the catalog configuration setting. Querying new Iceberg materialized views that fit this criteria fail and return a Materialized view does not have an owner error. See Using BIAC with Iceberg materialized views for steps to mitigate this issue.

  • The optimizer.mark-distinct-strategy configuration property has been removed. You must remove this property from the cluster configuration in favor of the optimizer.distinct-aggregations-strategy configuration property or the cluster fails to start.

  • The internal-communication.shared-secret, managed-statistics.http-client.key-store-path, and managed-statistics.http-client.key-store-password catalog configuration properties are no longer required to enable managed statistics for a catalog. You must remove these properties from your catalog configuration files or the cluster fails to start. The internal-communication.shared-secret property is still valid as a general configuration property and can remain in non-catalog configuration files.


  • Added support for the queryText selector rule in resource groups to allow the use of a regular expression to match against the SQL query string.

  • Added vectorized predicate evaluation. To enable this feature, set the columnar-filter-evaluation.enabled property to true.

  • Improved the performance of Top-N pushdown queries.

  • Improved the performance of queries that use aggregation with a join.

  • Improved dynamic filters for queries that include a join.

  • Improved the performance of predicate pushdown queries that include a BETWEEN operator.

  • Improved the performance of queries that use multiple distinct aggregations.

  • Improved the performance of table scans with native decompression.

  • Improved the performance of queries that use aggregation on INT, SMALLINT, TINYINT, or DATE columns.
