The CloudNativePG Community has announced version 1.19.0, a new minor release of the CloudNativePG Operator, which introduces support for backup from a standby, which reduces the I/O impact on the primary, and delayed failover, which enables you to wait for some amount of time after a failure on the primary before triggering an automated failover.
Support for separate WAL volumes has been enhanced with the possibility to add a separate WAL volume even on an existing PostgreSQL cluster. More metrics for WAL usage monitoring have been added to the default Prometheus exporter. Both functionalities have also been backported to 1.18.2.
cnpg plugin for
kubectl has been enhanced with the introduction of the
backup command to issue a new base backup on a selected cluster.
Some minor bugs have also been fixed.
New patch releases are available for all the supported versions, including 1.18.2 and 1.17.4.
With the release of 1.19.0, the 1.17.x minor version will be end of life from 14 March, 2023.
We encourage you to update the operator at your earliest possible convenience.

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 a project originally created and supported by EDB.
