TiDB 6.1.6 Release Notes

Release date: April 12, 2023

TiDB version: 6.1.6

Quick access: Quick start | Production deployment | Installation packages

Compatibility changes

  • TiCDC fixes the issue of incorrect encoding of FLOAT data in Avro #8490 @3AceShowHand

    When upgrading the TiCDC cluster to v6.1.6 or a later v6.1.x version, if a table replicated using Avro contains the FLOAT data type, you need to manually adjust the compatibility policy of Confluent Schema Registry to None before upgrading so that the changefeed can successfully update the schema. Otherwise, after upgrading, the changefeed will be unable to update the schema and enter an error state.
