BigQuery Loader 1.3.0 released

We are pleased to announce version 1.3.0 of Snowplow’s BigQuery loader

Starting from this release, we are publishing alternative lightweight docker images based on Google’s “distroless” base image. The distroless images provide some security advantages, because they carry only the minimal files and executables needed for the loader to run.

You can pull the 1.3.0-distroless tag to get started with the new images:

docker pull snowplow/snowplow-bigquery-streamloader:1.3.0-distroless
docker pull snowplow/snowplow-bigquery-mutator:1.3.0-distroless
docker pull snowplow/snowplow-bigquery-repeater:1.3.0-distroless
docker pull snowplow/snowplow-bigquery-loader:1.3.0-distroless

This release also bumps many underlying libraries to newer versions, and makes a small fix to the graceful shutdown feature that we added in 1.2.0. The loader now shuts down more quickly than before, but still allowing all in-flight events to be processed and acknowledged.

Upgrading from 1.2.0

If you are already running version 1.2.0 then you can switch to the 1.3.0 docker images without any changes to your configuration.

docker pull snowplow/snowplow-bigquery-streamloader:1.3.0
docker pull snowplow/snowplow-bigquery-loader:1.3.0
docker pull snowplow/snowplow-bigquery-mutator:1.3.0
docker pull snowplow/snowplow-bigquery-repeater:1.3.0
