The streaming application creates new files with this metadata. This is supported on Spark 2.3.2 and later versions.

TOOLS-1440: The `s3cmd` version is upgraded from 1.5.2 to 2.0.2.

Bug fix

AN-1974: Column headers now appear on the Analyze page for large Hive queries (approximately 65KB and more).

PRES-2254: In a Presto notebook, you can now set zeppelin.presto.stacktrace as an interpreter property for displaying stacktrace for certain errors.

PRES-2600: These are the new enhancements in the Presto notebooks:

  • You can now set session properties in Presto notebooks in a paragraph and run it. When set, these session properties are applicable to paragraphs in the notebook’s current session.
  • In Presto notebooks, for improving debugging experience, the source field is set as notebook_<notebook-name>_<notebook-id> and in the dashboards, the source field is set as dashboard_<dashboard-name>_<dashboard-id>_<source-note-id>. A source field is directly searchable in the Presto UI. For example, in the Presto UI, you can search a notebook by its name or ID to quickly filter queries, which are run from that specific notebook while debugging an error.
Bug fix

PRES-2727: This fixes the issue where queries with a table containing sub column names of a struct column type starting with numbers failed. Sub-column names of a struct column type can now start with numbers.
