4.25 (main9554)

  • Introduced the SCD2 - Spark SQL 2.x Snap to support Type 2 Slowly Changing Dimensions (SCD2) updates to the target databases in the eXtreme mode.
  • Upgraded the Spark SQL 2.x Snap Pack to support Spark 3.0.1 on the following cloud platform versions:
    • Amazon EMR 6.2.0 (Hadoop distribution: Amazon)
    • Azure Databricks 7.5

4.24 (424patches8724)

  • Fixes the issue where the eXtremeplex is unable to read Parquet files written from a Groundplex (and hence displays base64 enabled in all the output columns upon validation), by changing the data encoding from Base64-encoded to Plain text format. This issue does not occur during Pipeline execution.

  • Accounts support validation. Thus, you can click Validate in the account settings dialog to validate that your account is configured correctly.

4.21 (421patches5851)

  • Optimizes Spark engine execution on AWS EMR, requiring lesser compute resources.
