Apache CarbonData community is pleased to announce the release of the Version 1.3.1 in The Apache Software Foundation (ASF). CarbonData is a new BigData native file format for a faster interactive query using advanced columnar storage, index, compression, and encoding techniques to improve computing efficiency. In turn, it will help to speed up queries an order of magnitude faster over PetaBytes of data.

We encourage everyone to download the release https://archive.apache.org/dist/carbondata/1.3.1/, and feedback through the CarbonData user mailing lists!

This release note provides information on the new features, improvements, and bug fixes of this release.

What’s New in Version 1.3.1?

In this version of CarbonData, following are the new features added for performance improvements, compatibility, and usability of CarbonData.

Restructured Carbon Partition

The Carbon partition is been restructured to use the Hive standard folder structure.

Support Global Sort on Partition Tables

Supports Global Sort on partition tables, this improves the query performance and better resource management.
