KINFRA-1053 Fix in GaiaSetBaseVector::copy_to: when num_bytes < vector.size and vector is compressed
KINFRA-1096 Updated

Fixed type: m_part_of_previously_joined_set initialization


Updated /append/records fast path support random sharding


Fixed crash bug when running all_test in parallel - fix a case when calling avro::compileJsonSchema with an existing ValidSchema - AVRO documentation makes clear you can't update a ValidSchema - therefore make sure to generate a new one


Updates to shard keys (updating the value of a shard key) will move the record to the appropriate TOM (using the same delete/insert mechanism as updates to the primary key)


Added a hidden option 'enable_legacy_multistep_equijoin_null_behavior' to revert the KOLAP-1097 bugfix which fixed evaluation of NULL=NULL in follow-on equijoins. This is to support legacy behavior.

KOLAP-900 Re-enabled fast path when source table and target table are the same since we create a view before appending
KUI-673 Added support for --gis-ext-enabled option for Postgres and SQL Server spark import
KUI-673 Added support for KIO params --d-spark-enable-multihead, --d-spark-timeout-milliseconds, --d-collection-name, --d-update-on-existing-pk, and --d-is-replicated for Kinetica datasource
