The CloudNativePG Community has released a new update for the supported 1.21, 1.20 and 1.19 versions of the CloudNativePG Operator.
Version 1.21.1 removes the previous limitation of cold backups on volume snapshots: by default, unless differently requested, volume snapshot backups are taken while the Postgres instance is up and running, thanks to the direct support of the PostgreSQL API for physical online backups. A few options allow you to configure the default behavior, and apply hybrid backup strategies based on object store, cold volume snapshots, and hot volume snapshots.
Versions 1.21.1, 1.20.4 and 1.19.6 are patch releases containing a few bug fixes, including:
LOCALsynchronous commit level when managing the Postgres cluster replication settings
With this release, version 1.19 has reached End-of-Life (EOL): version 1.19.6 is the last that will be released for the 1.19 minor version.
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.
