Databricks Connect release notes

This page lists releases and maintenance updates issued for Databricks Connect.

For versions 13 and above, the Databricks Runtime version of the cluster must be greater than or equal to the Databricks Connect version. Databricks recommends using the latest version to receive any bug fixes and security updates.

For versions 12 and below, the Databricks Connect major and minor package version must always match your Databricks Runtime version. Databricks recommends that you always use the most recent version of Databricks Connect that matches your Databricks Runtime version. For example, when you use a Databricks Runtime 7.3 cluster, use the latest databricks-connect==7.3.* package.

LTS means this version is under long-term support. See Databricks Runtime LTS version lifecycle.
