See the Version 4.8.0 release notes for a full list of changes in the 4.8 series.


  • Fixed a regression introduced in CrateDB 4.3.0 causing an IndexOutOfBoundsException when applying aggregations on literals. Example:

    SELECT SUM(10) FROM test HAVING COUNT(1) > 0
  • Fixed an issue, preventing users from defining a constraint on a generated column, when creating a table or when adding a generated column. Example:

    CREATE TABLE test(
        col1 INT,
        col2 INT GENERATED ALWAYS AS col1*2 CHECK (col2 > 0)
  • Fixed an issue causing IndexOutOfBoundsException to be thrown when using LEFT/RIGHT or FULL OUTER JOIN and one of the tables (or sub-selects) joined has 0 rows.

  • Updated the bundled JDK from 17.0.3+7 to 17.0.4+8.

  • Fixed a race condition that could cause a INSERT INTO operation to get stuck.

  • Fixed an issue that could cause queries with objectColumn = ? expressions to fail if the object contains inner arrays.

  • Fixed a NullPointerException when using a IS NULL expression on an object column that just had a child column added.

  • Fixed an issue that caused array_upper and array_lower scalar functions return wrong results on multidimensional arrays.

  • Fixed exposure of the correct version a partitioned table was created on at the information_schema.tables.version.created column for newly created partitioned tables. This won’t fix it for existing tables as the version information the table was created with was not stored and such is not known. The issue doesn’t affect the version exposed for individual partitions.

  • Fixed a column positions issue that caused an INSERT or any other statements that adds columns dynamically to throw an exception.

  • Updated the Admin UI to version 1.22.2. It includes a fix for a rendering issue causing jumping behavior on selected views in view list.

  • Fixed UPDATE, INSERT and COPY FROM to preserve the implied column order when columns are added.

  • Fixed casts of strings to the DATE type, any possible time parts of a timestamp formatted will be ignored instead of raising a cast error.

  • Fixed casts of numeric and timestamp values to the DATE type, any time values weren’t removed from the returning epoch in milliseconds.

  • Fixed an issue causing error when adding a check constraint to a nested object sub column.
