dbt 0.10.0

This release overhauls dbt's package management functionality, makes seeding csv files work across all adapters, and adds date partitioning support for BigQuery.

Upgrading Instructions:

  • Check out full installation and upgrading instructions here
    • homebrew: brew upgrade dbt
    • pip: pip install -U dbt
  • Transition the repositories: section of your dbt_project.yml file to a packages.yml file as described here
  • You may need to clear out your dbt_modules directory if you use packages like dbt-utils. Depending how your project is configured, you can do this by running dbt clean.
  • We're using a new CSV parsing library, agate, so be sure to check that all of your seed tables are parsed as you would expect!
