Spice v0.12.2-alpha (May 13, 2024)

The v0.12.2-alpha release introduces data streaming and key-pair authentication for the Snowflake data connector, enables general append mode data refreshes for time-series data, improves connectivity error messages, adds nested folders support for the S3 data connector, and exposes nodeSelector and affinity keys in the Helm chart for better Kubernetes management.


  • Improved Connectivity Error Messages: Error messages provide clearer, actionable guidance for misconfigured settings or unreachable data connectors.

  • Snowflake Data Connector Improvements: Enables data streaming by default and adds support for key-pair authentication in addition to passwords.

  • API for Refresh SQL Updates: Update dataset Refresh SQL via API.

  • Append Data Refresh: Append mode data refreshes for time-series data are now supported for all data connectors. Specify a dataset time_column with refresh_mode: append to only fetch data more recent than the latest local data.

  • Docker Image Update: The spiceai/spiceai:latest Docker image now includes the ODBC data connector. For a smaller footprint, use spiceai/spiceai:latest-slim.

  • Helm Chart Improvements: nodeSelector and affinity keys are now supported in the Helm chart for improved Kubernetes deployment management.

Breaking Changes

  • API to trigger accelerated dataset refreshes has changed from POST /v1/datasets/:name/refresh to POST /v1/datasets/:name/acceleration/refresh to be consistent with the Spicepod.yaml structure.
