February 2023 Updates for Azure Synapse Analytics

Ryan Majidimehr has a new round-up for us:

Azure Synapse Runtime for Apache Spark 3.3 has been in Public Preview since November 2022. We are excited to announce that after notable improvements in performance and stability, Azure Synapse Runtime for Apache Spark 3.3 now becomes Generally Available and ready for production workloads.   

The essential changes include features that come from upgrading Apache Spark to version 3.3.1, Delta Lake to version 2.2.0, and Python to 3.10. 

This month’s set of changes isn’t quite as big as some prior months, though there are a couple items of great importance to make up for it.
