TiDB 7.1.2 Release Notes

Release date: October 25, 2023

TiDB version: 7.1.2

Quick access: Quick start | Production deployment | Installation packages

Compatibility changes

Behavior changes

  • For transactions containing multiple changes, if the primary key or non-null unique index value is modified in the update event, TiCDC splits an event into delete and insert events and ensures that all events follow the sequence of delete events preceding insert events. For more information, see documentation.


  • TiDB

  • TiKV

    • Optimize the compaction mechanism: when a Region is split, if there is no key to split, a compaction is triggered to eliminate excessive MVCC versions #15282 @SpadeA-Tang
    • Eliminate LRUCache in Router objects to reduce memory usage and prevent OOM #15430 @Connor1996
    • Add the Max gap of safe-ts and Min safe ts region metrics and introduce the tikv-ctl get-region-read-progress command to better observe and diagnose the status of resolved-ts and safe-ts #15082 @ekexium
    • Expose some RocksDB configurations in TiKV that allow users to disable features such as TTL and periodic compaction #14873 @LykxSassinator
    • Add the backoff mechanism for the PD client in the process of connection retries, which gradually increases retry intervals during error retries to reduce PD pressure #15428 @nolouch
    • Avoid holding mutex when writing Titan manifest files to prevent affecting other threads #15351 @Connor1996
    • Optimize memory usage of Resolver to prevent OOM #15458 @overvenus
  • PD

    • Optimize the backoff mechanism in the PD caller to reduce the frequency of RPC requests when a call fails #6556 @nolouch @rleungx @HuSharp
    • Introduce the cancel mechanism for the GetRegions interface to release CPU and memory in time when the caller is disconnected #6835 @lhy1024
  • TiFlash

    • Add monitoring metrics for the memory usage of index data in Grafana #8050 @hongyunyan
  • Tools

    • Backup & Restore (BR)

      • Reduce the CPU overhead of log backup resolve lock #40759 @3pointer
      • Add a new restore parameter WaitTiflashReady. When this parameter is enabled, the restore operation will be completed after TiFlash replicas are successfully replicated #43828 #46302 @3pointer
    • TiCDC

      • Optimize several TiCDC monitoring metrics and alarm rules #9047 @asddongmen
      • Kafka Sink supports sending only handle key data when a message is too large, avoiding changefeed failure caused by excessive message size #9680 @3AceShowHand
      • Optimize the execution logic of replicating the ADD INDEX DDL operations to avoid blocking subsequent DML statements #9644 @sdojjy
      • Refine the status message when TiCDC retries after a failure #9483 @asddongmen
    • TiDB Data Migration (DM)

      • Support strict optimistic mode for incompatible DDL statements #9112 @GMHDBJD
    • TiDB Lightning

      • Change the default value of checksum-via-sql to false to improve the performance of import tasks #45368 #45094 @GMHDBJD
      • Optimize the retry logic of TiDB Lightning for the no leader error during the data import phase #46253 @lance6716
