The CloudNativePG Community has announced version 1.18.0, a new minor release of the CloudNativePG Operator, which introduces support for cluster-managed physical replication slots to automatically manage physical replication slots for each hot standby replica in a High Availability cluster, failover events included.

The cnpg plugin for kubectl has been enhanced with the introduction of 3 new commands:

  • hibernate: destroy all the resources generated by a Cluster, except the PVCs that belong to the PostgreSQL primary instance (hibernate on), and re-create the cluster (hibernate off)
  • install: generate manifests to override the default configuration options for an operator deployment, such as namespaces to watch, replicas, and so on
  • pgbench: generate jobs to run pgbench against a given cluster

Some minor bugs have been fixed, in particular importing a database with plpgsql functions and finding the closest backup when doing PITR.

New patch releases are available for all the supported versions, including 1.17.2 and 1.16.4.

With the release of 1.18.0, the 1.16.x minor version will be end of life from 10 December, 2022.

We encourage you to update the operator at your earliest possible convenience.

About CloudNativePg

CloudNativePG is an open source Kubernetes Operator for PostgreSQL workloads that orchestrates the full life cycle of a PostgreSQL cluster, from bootstrapping and configuration, through high availability and connection routing, to backups and disaster recovery. CloudNativePG relies on PostgreSQL’s native streaming replication to distribute data across pods, nodes, and zones, using standard Kubernetes patterns. Replicas can be scaled up and down in a Kubernetes native manner, and the operator automatically and safely reconfigure replication as appropriate. CloudNativePG is the first PostgreSQL Operator to pursue the whole graduation process with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) by submitting the request to join the Sandbox in April 2022. CloudNativePG is a project originally created and supported by EDB.
