The Apache Calcite PMC is pleased to announce Apache Calcite release 1.18.0.

With over 200 commits from 36 contributors, this is the largest Calcite release ever. To the SQL dialect, we added JSON functions, linear regression functions, and the WITHIN GROUP clause for aggregate functions; there is a new utility to recommend lattices based on past queries, and improvements to expression simplification, the SQL advisor, and the Elasticsearch and Apache Geode adapters.
