1.7.8 (Released on July 6th, 2020)


The version - V1.7.8 - of Indexima is now available.
This version offers new features :

Easy to use

Developer Console SQL interface has been reworked to make it more legible and user-friendly. 

Easy to adopt

SET ALIAS command is available for creating an alias on a table in order to make queries more understandable. For instance, you could still use a table while inserting in another one with the same name.

Easy to implement 

Indexima now supports external tables on Apache Impala. It avoids copying data while maintaining a response time below a second.

With the external table sub-query function, Indexima can now delegate sub-queries to ensure a better integration with Dataviz tools.
