Apache Arrow ADBC 13 (Libraries) Release

Published 05 Jul 2024
By The Apache Arrow PMC (pmc)

The Apache Arrow team is pleased to announce the 13 release of the Apache Arrow ADBC libraries. This covers includes 24 resolved issues from 11 distinct contributors.

This is a release of the libraries, which are at version

  1. The API specification is versioned separately and is at version 1.1.0.

The subcomponents are versioned independently:

  • C/C++/GLib/Go/Python/Ruby: 1.1.0
  • C#: 0.13.0
  • Java: 0.13.0
  • R: 0.13.0
  • Rust: 0.13.0

The release notes below are not exhaustive and only expose selected highlights of the release. Many other bugfixes and improvements have been made: we refer you to the complete changelog.

Release Highlights

The C/C++ components may now be optionally built with the Meson build system, which can be more convenient during development. (CMake is still the preferred build system for releases.) The PostgreSQL driver now avoids an error when ingesting large record batches. We have worked around an issue in Snowflake when ingesting empty batches. Also, “privateLink” account identifiers should work as expected now.

The C# APIs have been overhauled to prepare for async support.

The Rust implementation is effectively ready, though it is not yet part of releases.
