sergeant 0.9.0 2020-06-01

  • Column order preserved in REST API & REST API DBI-based calls if using Apache Drill 1.15.0+ (Addresses #18)
  • New drill_functions() function to show all the available Apache Drill built-in functions & UDFs (Apache Drill 1.15.0+ required); this function has an option to display the functions in a widget and has added the DT package to Suggests in the DESCRIPTION file.
  • DBI & dbplyr-REST interface queries now return much better query error messages including original query text and a link to the Drill query profile (so users can do more in-depth debugging)
  • License change to GPL-3 since the pkg now uses code from bibrquery
  • New option() => “sergeant.bigint.warnonce” to control BIGINT warnings. Use options(sergeant.bigint.warnonce = FALSE)
  • Fixed bug in dbListFields() (DrillConnection-class)
  • Added as.integer64() dplyr custom Drill function to convert columns to BIGINT
  • Added ctas_profile() to automagically create a CTAS query from a Drill tbl (Ref: #29 / inspired by David Severski)

  • Added more tests to cover DBI and extended/new d[b]plyr operations
