Release Notes discussed: https://trino.io/docs/current/release/release-352.html At the time of recording 352 was not out yet. We will discuss a few of the changes coming down the pipeline to look forward to!

Naming our new bunny!

That’s right, you submitted your names, and we are now happy to announce the top names that were chosen, and we will choose the name by a community poll.

The running names are:

  • Lepi: short for Lepus, the constellation under Orion that is in the shape of a bunny and said to be chased by Orion or Orion’s dogs. They cannot catch it because the bunny is fast https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lepus_(constellation).
  • Neut: early name used by community members through hearsay to unofficially name the bunny until it had a real name. This name, which is a portmanteau when combined with Trino (Neut-Trino) became popular among a few members.
  • Nu: math symbol, with a similar prefix use of Nu + Trino to refer to the neutrino origins. Also in physics nu represents any of three kinds of neutrino in particle physics.
  • Commander Bun Bun: a name suggested by a community member’s child who loves the bunny!
