TiDB 4.0.16 Release Notes

Release date: December 17, 2021

TiDB version: 4.0.16

Compatibility changes

  • TiKV

    • Before v4.0.16, when TiDB converts an illegal UTF-8 string to a Real type, an error is reported directly. Starting from v4.0.16, TiDB processes the conversion according to the legal UTF-8 prefix in the string #11466
  • Tools

    • TiCDC

      • Change the default value of Kafka Sink max-message-bytes to 1 MB to prevent TiCDC from sending too large messages to Kafka clusters #2962
      • Change the default value of Kafka Sink partition-num to 3 so that TiCDC distributes messages across Kafka partitions more evenly #3337


  • TiDB

    • Upgrade the Grafana version from 7.5.7 to 7.5.11
  • TiKV

    • Reduce disk space consumption by adopting the zstd algorithm to compress SST files when restoring data using Backup & Restore or importing data using Local-backend of TiDB Lightning #11469
  • Tools

    • Backup & Restore (BR)

      • Improve the robustness of restoring #27421
    • TiCDC

      • Add a tick frequency limit to EtcdWorker to prevent frequent etcd writes from affecting PD services #3112
      • Optimize rate limiting control on TiKV reloads to reduce gPRC congestion during changefeed initialization #3110
