This Calcite release makes it possible to exploit physical properties of relational expressions to produce more efficient plans, introducing collation and distribution as traits, Exchange relational operator, and several new forms of metadata.

We add experimental support for streaming SQL.

This release drops support for JDK 1.6; Calcite now requires 1.7 or later.

We have introduced static create methods for many sub-classes of RelNode. We strongly suggest that you use these rather than calling constructors directly.
