CISL 1.3.1

Niko Neugebauer has released the newest version of his columnstore index library:

Here is the small description of what is new in this release:

  • The database snapshots (.dacpac) for all platforms are now included in the Releases\DacPacs.

  • Includes new Powershell functions for installing and removing CISL from the Instances:

    • Install-CISL.ps1 will allow you to install the CISL at multiple databases of a SQ Server Instance (or Azure SQLDB).
    • Remove-CISL.ps1 will allow you to remove the CISL from the multiple databases of a SQL Server Instance (or Azure SQLDB).
  • Support for the different collation is included.

  • Includes information on all recent SQL Server updates.

  • Included support of the new Columnstore Indexes Trace Flags in SQL Server 2016.

  • Basic Unit Tests (based on t-sqlt) are included for SQL Server 2012 & SQL Server 2014, guaranteeing the quality of the released code.

  • A good number of bug fixes.

  • Further parameter enhancements for the existing functions.

Sounds like there’s a lot packed into this release.
