Redshift Web Model 1.3.0 Released

We are happy to announce the v1.3.0 release of the Redshift Web model.

This is a patch release to fix an issue whereby pseudoanonymised columns were incompatible with manifest tables, and to improve efficiency by removing sortkey encodings.

It also introduces a pattern to make manual steps for upgrading models more transparent and accessible.

Since column definitions change in this release, manual steps are required to bring existing tables into line with the new table definitions. Where in previous releases we provided the steps to do so in the release notes, these steps can now be found in the 99-migrations folder, and playbooks are provided.

This release contains the migration for Redshift web 1.2.0 → 1.3.0. A subsequent maintenance release will include migrations for previous releases of all models.

Issues in this release:

  • Change SORTKEY encoding to RAW (#129) (thanks @mark-walle!)
  • Fix column lengths in manifest tables (#131)
