Drill can leverage indexes for queries with ORDER BY DESC on indexed columns; for example, if a secondary index is defined on column a, Drill leverages the index for the query:

IllegalStateException: Unexpected case where rowId [] in right batch of lateral is smaller than rowId [] in left batch being processed.

MD-4938 The option planner.index.covering_selectivity_threshold takes effect in execution plan when set to values < 1.0 for complex data.
MD-4936 DRILL-6773: Queries, with column aliases, that returned inconsistent results after a Drill patch was applied no longer return inconsistent results.
MD-4902 Complex secondary index plans are parallelized when queries have AND conditions.
