The CloudNativePG Community has announced version 1.20.0, a new minor release of the CloudNativePG Operator, which introduces support for declarative role management, allowing you to manage PostgreSQL users and groups via configuration, and declarative hibernation, which enables you to shut down all running pods in a PostgreSQL cluster and keep only the persistent volumes.

We are also changing the default behavior with the newly created PostgreSQL clusters:

  • automated rolling updates now trigger a restart of the primary instead of a switchover
  • if replicas are available, backups for Point-In-Time-Recovery are automatically taken from a standby

Some minor bugs have also been fixed.

New patch releases are available for all the supported versions, including 1.19.2 and 1.18.4.

With the release of 1.20.0, the 1.18.x minor version will be end of life from 27 May, 2023.

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 a project originally created and supported by EDB.
