Release Notes October 2023


Feature release status badge: Feature
MATE with dbt version 1.5

We've rolled out dbt version 1.5 as the default for the MATE orchestrator and MATE packages, taking your DataOps experience to a whole new level.

By the end of November 2023, the current default dbt 1.0 version will reach its end of life and will no longer receive support. However, you can still opt for dbt 1.0 in your DataOps projects after November, and dbt 1.0 will be installed at runtime, but this will have an impact on performance and support.

Should you encounter any issues in your pipelines related to the dbt version, check dbt migration for detailed guidance to help you resolve any potential issues.

Snowflake bundle 2023_07

With the release of the Snowflake 2023_07 bundle planned for January 2024, you'll notice security enhancement in the behavior of network policy commands. When you try to delete a network policy assigned to an account, security integration, or a user:

Before the bundle is released

You can delete the network policy without considering whether the network policy is still assigned to an account, security integration, or user.

After the bundle is released

You must detach a network policy from all accounts, security integrations, and users before you can delete it.
