The Scylla team is pleased to announce ScyllaDB Open Source 5.1 RC3, the second Release Candidate for the Scylla Open Source 5.1 minor release.
We encourage you to run ScyllaDB 5.1 release candidates on your test environments; this will help ensure that an upgrade to ScyllaDB 5.1 General Availability will proceed smoothly with your workload. Use the release candidate with caution; RC3 is not production-ready yet. You can help stabilize Scylla Open Source 5.1 by reporting bugs here.
Only the last two minor releases of the ScyllaDB Open Source project are supported. Once Scylla Open Source 5.1 is officially released, ScyllaDB Open Source 5.1 and 5.0 will be supported, and ScyllaDB 4.6 will be retired.
For a complete description of ScyllaDB 5.1 see ScyllaDB 5.1 RC1.

Stability: heap-use-after-free hit in cross_shard_barrier_test (unlikely to happened outside this test) #11303

Stability: Accidentally quadratic behavior when a large number of range tombstones is present in a partition has been fixed. #11211
Stability: sstables crawling reader can emit duplicated partition end. This issue affects scylla's scrub compaction (in all modes) as well as the validate operation of the scylla-sstable tool. #11421
CQL API: ScyllaDB doesn't send "per-partition rate limit exceeded exception" even if the driver supports it #11517. Per partition rate limit is a new feature introduced in ScyllaDB 5.1
