presto software release

We’re excited to start off the year with the release of 0.268!

 The top features of the month are:

👉 Support hive built-in scalar function #16737 (Author: zhaoyulong)
With the help of this feature, Presto allows you to use the same scalar functions that are available in your Hive deployment.

👉 Support consistent hashing in soft affinity node selection strategy #17115 (Author: Rongrong Zhong) This feature adds support to use consistent hashing as a hash strategy when affinity scheduling is used.

The Presto Foundation is aware of the recently disclosed vulnerabilities related to the open-source Apache “Log4j2” utility, and we’d like to give a huge thanks to Jinlin Zhang and Costin for their active contribution to this issue.
