New features

  • (#5149) Added bitwise transformation functions: hl.bit_{and, or, xor, not, lshift, rshift}.
  • (#5154) Added hl.rbind function, which is similar to hl.bind but expects a function as the last argument instead of the first.

Performance improvements

  • (#5107) Hail’s Python interface generates tighter intermediate code, which should result in moderate performance improvements in many pipelines.

  • (#5078) Improve performance of hl.ld_prune by up to 30x.

Bug fixes

  • (#5177) Fix bug causing Table.repartition(n, shuffle=True) to fail to increase partitioning for unkeyed tables.
  • (#5173) Fix bug causing Table.show to throw an error when the table is empty (since 0.2.8).
  • (#5210) Fix bug causing Table.show to always print types, regardless of types argument (since 0.2.8).
