RDB Loader 5.1.1 released

We are please to announce the release of RDB Loader version 5.1.1

Bug fix for Databricks support with streaming transformer

This bug affects pipelines that use the streaming transformer to write parquet files for loading into Databricks. A bug was introduced in the 5.0.0 release that prevented the streaming transformer from writing to parquet. Affected users might have seen an error message like:

java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: Class org.apache.hadoop.fs.s3a.S3AFileSystem not found

If you were affected by this bug, we hope you can now upgrade your loader and transformer to use version 5.1.1.

Upgrades to library dependencies

This release also upgrades several 3rd party library dependencies to newer versions. This is in line with our commitment to stay on top of potential security vulnerabilities that get reported over time.
