Week In Review -- November 14, 2016

Here's what last week was about:

  • Fixed bug in Redshift backend: Exporting a table with column of maximum allowed length (64KB) no longer causes an error.
  • MariaDB, which is used as MySQL backend in transformations, was updated to version 5.5.53. This update enhances the handling of 4-byte UTF-8 characters. In previous version 5.5.44 a string was cut after the first utf8mb4 character. Now, all these characters will be converted to '?'. Full support of 4-byte UTF-8 characters is unfortunately unavailable in MySQL.
  • Fixed bug in MySQL extractor: When query returned an empty result, extractor ended up with 'Orphaned manifest' error
