Version: 1.6.1

Changelog

v1.6.1 - Jul 24, 2021#

Major Features and Improvements#

  • Added proper privilege checks for queries executed by triggers and stream transformations.

Bug Fixes#

  • Fixed error handling in streams to make restarting streams possible after failing. The issue is caused by not rolling back the transaction in which the query failed, so when the stream was restarted and tried to process the next batch of messages it was still in a transaction, but it tried to start a new one. Now the transaction is rolled back in case of any errors during query execution, so a new transaction can be started during the processing of the next batch of messages.

v1.6.0 - Jul 7, 2021#

warning

Breaking Changes#

  • Changed the LOCK_PATH permission to DURABILITY.

Major Features and Improvements#

  • Added support for consuming Kafka streams. You can connect Memgraph to a Kafka cluster and run queries based on the messages received. The transformation from Kafka to Cypher queries is done using Transformation Modules, a concept similar to Query Modules. Using our Python and C API, you can easily define functions that analyze Kafka messages and generate different queries based on them. The stream connection can be configured, tested, stopped, started, checked, and dropped.
  • Introduced global allocators for Query Modules using C API, so the data can be preserved between multiple runs of the same procedure.
  • Introduced new isolation levels, READ COMMITTED and READ_UNCOMMITTED. The isolation level can be set with a config. Also, you can set the isolation level for a certain session or the next transaction. The names of the isolation levels should be self-explanatory, unlike the SNAPSHOT ISOLATION which is still the default isolation level.
  • The query timeouts are now triggered using a different method. Before, we used the TSC to measure the execution time. Unfortunately, this proved unreliable for certain CPUs (AMD Ryzen 7 and M1), which caused queries to timeout almost instantly. We switched to POSIX timer which should work on every hardware, while not affecting the performance.
  • Added a config, allow-load-csv, with which you can disable LOAD CSV clause. LOAD CSV can read and display data from any file on the system which could be insecure for some systems. Because of that, we added a config that allows you to disable that clause in every case.
  • Added CREATE SNAPSHOT query. Snapshots are created every few minutes, using this query you can trigger snapshot creation instantly.
  • Increased the default query timeout to 10 minutes. The previous default amount of 3 minutes proved too small, especially for queries that use LOAD CSV with a large dataset.

Bug Fixes#

  • Fixed parsing of certain types in Query Modules using Python API.
  • Fixed a concurrency bug for Query Modules using Python API. Running the same procedure from multiple clients caused the Memgraph instance to crash.
  • Fixed restoring triggers that call procedures. Because the triggers were restored before the procedures, the query trigger executes couldn't find the called procedure, which caused the restore to fail. Switching up the order was enough to fix the problem.

v1.5.0 - May 28, 2021#

Major Features and Improvements#

  • Added database triggers. You can now create, delete, and print out triggers that execute Cypher statements. You can create custom actions whenever a node or an edge is created, updated, or deleted. All the triggers are persisted on the disk, so no information is lost between runs.
  • Replaced mg_client with the mgconsole command-line interface, which ships directly with Memgraph. You can now install mgconsole directly on Windows and macOS.

Bug Fixes#

  • Fixed parsing of types for Python procedures for types nested in mgp.List. For example, parsing of mgp.List[mgp.Map] works now.
  • Fixed memory tracking issues. Some of the allocation and deallocation wasn't tracked during the query execution.
  • Fixed reading CSV files that are using CRLF as the newline symbol.
  • Fixed permission issues for LOAD CSV, FREE MEMORY, LOCK DATA DIRECTORY, and replication queries.

v1.4.0 - Apr 2, 2021#

warning

Breaking Changes#

  • Changed MEMORY LIMIT num (KB|MB) clause in the procedure calls to PROCEDURE MEMORY LIMIT num (KB|MB). The functionality is still the same.

Major Features and Improvements#

  • Added replication to community version.
  • Added support for multiple query modules directories at the same time. You can now define multiple, comma-separated paths to directories from which the modules will be loaded using the --query-modules-directory flag.
  • Added support for programatically reading in data from CSV files through the LOAD CSV clause. We support CSV files with and without a header, the supported dialect being Excel.
  • Added a new flag --memory-limit which enables the user to set the maximum total amount of memory memgraph can allocate during its runtime.
  • Added FREE MEMORY query which tries to free unusued memory chunks in different parts of storage.
  • Added the memory limit and amount of currently allocated bytes in the result of SHOW STORAGE INFO query.
  • Added QUERY MEMORY LIMIT num (KB|MB) to Cypher queries which allows you to limit memory allocation for the entire query. It can be added only at the end of the entire Cypher query.
  • Added logs for the different parts of the recovery process. INFO, DEBUG and TRACE level all contain additional information that is printed out while the recovery is in progress.

Bug Fixes#

  • Fixed garbage collector by correctly marking the oldest current timestamp after the database was recovered using the durability files.
  • Fixed reloading of the modules with changed result names.
  • Fixed profile query to show the correct name of the ScanAll operator variant.

v1.3.0 - Jan 26, 2021#

warning

Breaking Changes#

  • Added extra information in durability files to support replication, making it incompatible with the durability files generated by older versions of Memgraph. Even though the replication is an Enterprise feature, the files are compatible with the Community version.

Major Features and Improvements#

  • Added support for data replication across a cluster of Memgraph instances. Supported instance types are MAIN and REPLICA. Supported replication modes are SYNC (all SYNC REPLICAS have to receive data before the MAIN can commit the transaction), ASYNC (MAIN doesn't care if data is replicated), SYNC WITH TIMEOUT (MAIN will wait for REPLICAS within the given timeout period, after timout, replication isn't aborted but the replication demotes the REPLICA to the ASYNC mode).
  • Added support for query type deduction. Possible query types are r (read), w (write), rw (read-write). The query type is returned as a part of the summary.
  • Improved logging capabilities by introducing granular logging levels. Added new flag, --log-level, which specifies the minimum log level that will be printed. E.g., it's possible to print incoming queries or Bolt server states.
  • Added ability to lock the storage data directory by executing the LOCK DATA DIRECTORY; query which delays the deletion of the files contained in the data directory. The data directory can be unlocked again by executing the UNLOCK DATA DIRECTORY; query.

Bug Fixes and Other Changes#

  • Added cleanup of query executions if not in an explicit transaction.
  • Fix RPC dangling reference.

v1.2.0 - Oct 20, 2020#

warning

Breaking Changes#

  • SSL is disabled by default (--bolt-cert-file and --bolt-key-file are empty). This change might only affect the client connection configuration.

Major Features and Improvements#

  • Added support for Bolt v4.0 and v4.1.
  • Added mgp_networkx.py as an alternative implementation of NetworkX graph objects, which is useful to use Memgraph data from NetworkX algorithms optimally.
  • Added nxalg.py query module as a proxy to NetworkX algorithms.
  • Added plan optimization to use a label-property index where the property is not null. As a result, the query engine, instead of scanning all elements and applying the filter, performs a label-property index lookup when possible.

Bug Fixes and Other Changes#

  • Fixed Cypher ID function Null handling. When the ID function receives Null, it will also return Null.
  • Fixed bug that caused random crashes in SSL communication on platforms that use older versions of OpenSSL (< 1.1) by adding proper multi-threading handling.
  • Fix DISCARD message handling. The query is now executed before discarding the results.

v1.1.0 - Jul 1, 2020#

Major Features and Improvements#

  • Properties in nodes and edges are now stored encoded and compressed. This change significantly reduces memory usage. Depending on the specific dataset, total memory usage can be reduced up to 50%.
  • Added support for rescanning query modules. Previously, the query modules directory was scanned only upon startup. Now it is scanned each time the user requests to load a query module. The functions used to load the query modules were renamed to mg.load() and mg.load_all() (from mg.reload() and mg.reload_all()).
  • Improved execution performance of queries that have an IN list filter by using label+property indices. Example: MATCH (n:Label) WHERE n.property IN [] ...
  • Added support for ANY and NONE openCypher functions. Previously, only ALL and SINGLE functions were implemented.

Bug Fixes and Other Changes#

  • Fixed invalid paths returned by variable expansion when the starting node and destination node used the same symbol. Example: MATCH path = (n:Person {name: "John"})-[:KNOWS*]->(n) RETURN path
  • Improved semantics of ALL and SINGLE functions to be consistent with openCypher when handling lists with Nulls.
  • SHOW CONSTRAINT INFO now returns property names as a list for unique constraints.
  • Escaped label/property/edgetype names in DUMP DATABASE to support names with spaces in them.
  • Fixed handling of DUMP DATABASE queries in multi-command transactions (BEGIN, ..., COMMIT).
  • Fixed handling of various query types in explicit transactions. For example, constraints were allowed to be created in multi-command transactions (BEGIN, ..., COMMIT) but that isn't a transactional operation and as such can't be allowed in multi-command transactions.
  • Fixed integer overflow bugs in COUNT, LIMIT and SKIP.
  • Fixed integer overflow bugs in weighted shortest path expansions.
  • Fixed various other integer overflow bugs in query execution.
  • Added Marvel Comic Universe tutorial.
  • Added FootballTransfers tutorial.
