BigQuery Loader 1.4.2 released

We are pleased to announce version 1.4.2 of the Snowplow BigQuery Loader.

This release fixes two bugs that had crept into the 1.4.x series.

Fix for critical exceptions like UnsupportedOperationException empty.min

In previous versions this exception would cause the loader application to crash, and it happened whenever a batch insert into BigQuery resulted in zero successful inserts. The exception will no longer happen in the 1.4.2 release.

Fix for loader shutdown so it does not hang on exit

Previous versions got stuck when shutting down, with a final message in the logs like Source of events was cancelled. It prevented the loader from exiting upon failures, or during any other controlled shutdown. The new 1.4.2 version exits cleanly upon any critical failure, or any controlled shutdown.
