The CloudNativePG Community has released a new update for the supported 1.20, 1.19 and 1.18 versions of the CloudNativePG Operator.

Versions 1.20.1, 1.19.3 and 1.18.5 are patch releases containing a few bug fixes and minor enhancements, including:

  • First implementation of recovery from a set of CSI VolumeSnapshot resources via the .spec.bootstrap.recovery.volumeSnapshot stanza
  • snapshot command for the cnpg plugin to create a consistent cold backup of a Postgres cluster from a standby using the Kubernetes VolumeSnapshot standard resource
  • Support for TopologySpreadConstraints to manage scheduling of instance pods
  • Management of the pg_failover_slots extension
  • schemaOnly option in the import stanza to avoid exporting/importing data when you bootstrap a new Postgres Cluster from an existing one

A new and improved version of the Grafana dashboard is now supplied with CloudNativePG.

With this release, version 1.18 has reached End-of-Life (EOL): version 1.18.5 is the last that will be released for the 1.18 minor version.

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.
