Latest Release: Version 9.8

We’re pleased to announce the next generation of the HPCC Systems® Platform. This release includes new Regex libraries, changes to user file lookup permission caching to make sure correct user credentials are used, Interactive ECL in our Language Reference web pages, Syntax checking in the ECL Watch Playground, and various security & performance enhancements.  


  • New Regex Libraries 

Beginning with version 9.8, the HPCC Systems platform uses a new third-party library to support regular expression operations in the platform.  PCRE2 will replace both Boost::regex and ICU in regular expression pattern parsing, compilation, and substring replacement. 

This change brings more consistency to how regex works within ECL, better support for UTF-8 data and overall better performance. For more details, see: Changes to Regex Support in HPCC Systems 9.8.0  

  • LDAP Default File Scope Permission Caching Fix

This change can affect LDAP-enabled systems. For details, see: Change in LDAP Support

  • Interactive ECL 

To augment the learning experience, we have made many of the ECL code examples on our ECL Language Reference web pages interactive.  

This means you can submit the example code to a publicly available HPCC Systems® platform. When you submit the ECL, it opens the ECL Watch Playground in a new tab and allows you to execute the ECL on that cluster. It then displays the results. You can also modify the code before submitting and see the results of the modified code.  

Take care not to submit code containing any proprietary algorithms or Personally Identifiable Information (PII). 

  • Syntax Check in the ECL Watch Playground 

The ECL Watch Playground now has a Syntax button which allows you to check syntax before submitting the code. If the code passes the check, a green checkmark is displayed. If it fails, the details of any errors are displayed.   

  • Improved Performance: There are numerous “under the covers” improvements to increase performance.  
  • Tighter Security: Many improvements made in the area of security.  

Whether you’re a seasoned user or just starting out, version 9.8.0 empowers you to achieve more than ever before.
