+title: "Drill 1.1 Released"
+code: drill-1.1-released
+excerpt: Drill 1.1 has been released, providing even more world class SQL capabilities, 
better support for querying a wide variety of non-relational datastores and a number of exciting
new features.
+authors: ["jnadeau"]
+Today I'm happy to announce the availability of the Drill 1.1 release. This release addresses
[162 JIRAs](https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=12313820&version=12329689)
on top of May's 1.0 release. Highlights include:
+#### Automatic Partitioning for Parquet files
+Drill now supports creating partitions automatically when using CREATE TABLE AS (CTAS) to
generate Parquet files. By leveraging the unique capabilities of the Parquet file format,
Drill is able provide this capability and still maintain data integrity and compatibility
with all other systems that consume Parquet (a world first). This functionality can be exercised
by utilizing the new [PARTITION BY](https://drill.apache.org/docs/partition-by-clause/) clause
+#### Support for Window Functions
+Drill now has first-class support for SQL Window Functions. This includes support for:
+  * Aggregate Functions: AVG, COUNT, MAX, MIN, SUM
+The community has done an excellent job providing a [comprehensive set of documentation](https://drill.apache.org/docs/sql-window-functions-introduction/)
so that you can starting using window functions immediately.  
+#### Hive Storage Plugin Enhancements
+We've enhanced Drill to work even better with Hive.  We started by upgrading Drill's support
to work with Hive 1.0.  In addition, Drill now provides a very powerful new security feature
called [delegated Hive impersonation](https://drill.apache.org/docs/configuring-user-impersonation-with-hive-authorization/).
 Compatibility and performance are also improved with better data type support (including
support for binary, tinyint and smallint data types) and better concurrency.
+#### SQL Union Improvements
+We've enhanced support for SQL UNION functionality.  Drill now supports both UNION and UNION
ALL capabilities.  We've also improved the query optimizer to better optimize plans that include
the UNION clause.
+#### New Features For Complex Data
+Drill's complex data capabilities continue to be the best in the market, now including support
for COUNT aggregations on various types of complex objects.  Drill also now has improved FLATTEN
capabilities to support very large complex objects.
+#### Improved JDBC Driver Compatibility
+Apache Drill's JDBC driver continues to be improved.  This includes a number of enhancements
and fixes to better support JDBC tools including [MicroStrategy](https://drill.apache.org/docs/using-microstrategy-analytics-with-apache-drill/),
[Tibco Spotfire](https://drill.apache.org/docs/using-tibco-spotfire-desktop-with-drill/),
[JReport](https://drill.apache.org/docs/configuring-jreport-with-drill/) and [SQuirreL](https://drill.apache.org/docs/using-jdbc-with-squirrel-on-windows/).
+The Apache Drill community now publishes the JDBC driver for easy inclusion in your personal
application through the use of Maven coordinates.  You can incorporate Drill's JDBC driver
into your application by [downloading it directly](http://search.maven.org/remotecontent?filepath=org/apache/drill/exec/drill-jdbc-all/1.1.0/drill-jdbc-all-1.1.0.jar)
or referencing the following coordinates within your Maven application.  
+    <dependency>
+      <groupId>org.apache.drill.exec</groupId>
+      <artifactId>drill-jdbc-all</artifactId>
+      <version>1.1.0</version>
+    </dependency>
+#### MongoDB 3.0 Support
+Drill's support for MongoDB has been improved.  Drill now uses MongoDB's latest Java Driver
and has enhanced connection pooling for better performance and resilience in large-scale deployments.
 Learn more on using the [MongoDB for Drill plugin](https://drill.apache.org/docs/mongodb-plugin-for-apache-drill/).
+#### Many More Fixes
+Drill include a number of other smaller fixes and enhancements for a [number of things](https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=12313820&version=12329689)
+  * improvements for certain types of exists and correlated subqueries
+  * fixes for running Drill on Windows
+  * improvements in implicit casting capabilities in schemaless scenarios
+  * improvements in INFORMATION_SCHEMA
+  * Fixes for both the WebUI and the Drill REST API
+#### More Frequent Releases
+The amazing Drill community continues to be the driving force behind these rapid iterative
releases.  Thanks to all the [committers]({{ site.baseurl }}/team/) and contributors that
made this release possible!  The community's goal continues to be maintaining a 4-6 release
cycle throughout the summer.  This means you will have many more enhancements to look for
in the next few months.  If you use Drill, want to, or want to help develop it, drop by in

+Download the [Drill 1.1.0 release](https://drill.apache.org/download/) now and let us know
your thoughts.
+Drill On!
