  • fully type-checkedGROUP BY
  • Support for table aliases
  • Support for defining select clauses by corresponding types
  • supportUNION/INTERSECTInquire

In addition, Diesel 2.0.0 fixes several issues in the type level SQL representation, which now correctly handles the following cases:

  • mixed nestingLEFT JOINSandINNER JOINS
  • passAND,ORNullable expressions mixed with similar operator chaining

supportGROUP BYclause

Diesel 2.0 adds support forGROUP BYClause support for select queries.


    .select((users::name, count(posts::id)))

Support for table aliases

The following query demonstrates this functionality:

// Define new table alias for the existing `users` table
let users1 = diesel::alias!(schema::users as user1);

// Use the corresponding alias inside any existing query
    .select((users::id, users::name, users1.field(users::name)))


This feature easily chains together multiple queries as long as they return fields of the same type.
