The CloudNativePG Community is thrilled to unveil the latest update for the CloudNativePG Operator, now available for the supported versions 1.22 and 1.21.

Key enhancements in both supported minor releases are:

  • flexibility to configure the wal_level GUC in PostgreSQL and disable WAL archiving via an annotation, granting you finer control over your PostgreSQL environment
  • configurable duration of TLS certificates managed by the operator
  • introduction of the publication and subscription command groups in the cnpg plugin for kubectl, facilitating seamless management of PostgreSQL native logical replication. This unlocks new possibilities for imperative major online upgrades and online imports, enriching your data management strategies.

Versions 1.22.2 and 1.21.4 are patch releases that include essential bug fixes, addressing issues such as:

  • proper synchronization of PVC group labels to match those on the pods
  • check that volume snapshots are ready before initiating recovery procedures, ensuring smoother operations and data integrity

In adherence to Kubernetes best practices, we are transitioning from client-side to server-side application of manifests starting from this release. As a result, the --server-side option is now the preferred choice when installing the operator.

We highly recommend updating the operator at your earliest convenience to leverage these enhancements and bug fixes, ensuring a seamless and efficient PostgreSQL experience.

We extend our gratitude for your continued support, and we are excited to witness your enhanced experience with the updated CloudNativePG Operator. Thank You.
