Oxford, United Kingdom - August 1, 2019
2ndQuadrant today announced the release of Barman version 2.9.
This release introduces native support for PostgreSQL 12, which includes major changes in the way Point-In-Time-Recovery and Replicas are managed. For older versions of PostgreSQL (11 and earlier), Barman still maps its configuration and run-time options to the underlying PostgreSQL system, using the traditional recovery.conf based method, whilst using the new GUCs for version 12 (and future versions).
Barman v2.9 presents experimental support for JSON output of Barman commands, facilitating integration with external monitoring and management tools. It also includes various UI improvements and bug fixes.
Barman (Backup and Recovery Manager) is an open source administration tool for managing backup and disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers. It allows you to perform remote backups of multiple servers in business-critical environments and helps DBAs during the recovery phase.
The most relevant changes included in this release are listed below:
We strongly recommend upgrading to Barman v2.9 at the earliest opportunity available.
