Subject Announcing Delta Lake 0.3.0
Date Fri, 02 Aug 2019 01:44:30 GMT
Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce the availability of Delta Lake 0.3.0 which
introduces new programmatic APIs for manipulating and managing data in
Delta Lake tables.

Here are the main features:


   Scala/Java APIs for DML commands - You can now modify data in Delta Lake
   tables using programmatic APIs for *Delete*, *Update* and *Merge*. These
   APIs mirror the syntax and semantics of their corresponding SQL commands
   and are great for many workloads, e.g., Slowly Changing Dimension (SCD)
   operations, merging change data for replication, and upserts from streaming
   queries. See the documentation
   <> for more details.


   Scala/Java APIs for query commit history - You can now query a table’s
   commit history to see what operations modified the table. This enables you
   to audit data changes, time travel queries on specific versions, debug and
   recover data from accidental deletions, etc. See the documentation
   <> for
   more details.


   Scala/Java APIs for vacuuming old files - Delta Lake uses MVCC to enable
   snapshot isolation and time travel. However, keeping all versions of a
   table forever can be prohibitively expensive. Stale snapshots (as well as
   other uncommitted files from aborted transactions) can be garbage collected
   by vacuuming the table. See the documentation
   <> for more details.

To try out Delta Lake 0.3.0, please follow the Delta Lake Quickstart:
