Today we are pleased to release Riak KV 2.2.3. Riak KV 2.2.3 is the latest bug-fix package for our current feature release, and continues Basho’s commitment to our customers and community to develop and deliver a highly resilient, high-performance, key-value database.
In fixing a riak and riak-adminissue, we inadvertently used a Bash-specific script variable ($RANDOM), causing the riak attach and riak top commands to fail on Ubuntu when /bin/sh is aliased to Dash.
We opted to release a full bugfix version because of a small shell script bug that could impact all platforms; there is no impact to the operation and data in the riak cluster. These errors could cause certain riak-admin and riak commands to fail to start.
This bugfix removes the use of $RANDOM, allowing all riak and riak-admin commands to function properly in Dash. Information about the specific fixes in this release can be found in the release notes.
