SQL language changes

  • The binary Postgres wire format is now supported for INTERVAL values. #28135

Bug fixes

  • IMPORT no longer silently converts \r\n characters in CSV files into \n. #28225
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the row following a deleted row to be skipped during BACKUP. #28196
  • Limited the size of "batch groups" when committing a batch to RocksDB to avoid rare scenarios in which multi-gigabyte batch groups are created, which can cause a server to run out of memory when replaying the RocksDB log at startup. #28009
  • Prevented unbounded growth of the Raft log caused by a loss of quorum. #27868
  • CockroachDB now properly reports an error when a query attempts to use ORDER BY within a function argument list, which is an unsupported feature. #25147
