Re: PyArrow and Parquet DELTA_BINARY_PACKED
`DELTA_BINARY_PACKED` is at the moment only implemented in parquet-cpp on the read path. The necessary encoder implementation for this code is missing at the moment.
The change in file size is something I also don't understand. The only difference between the two versions is that with version 2, we encode uint32 columns in version 1 as INT64 whereas in version two, we can encode them as UINT32. This type was not available in version 1. It would be nice, if you could narrow down the issue to e.g. the column which causes the increase in size. You might also use the Java parquet-tools or parquet-cli to inspect the size statistics of the parts of the individual Parquet file.
