PostgreSQL Partition Manager (pg_partman) v4.6.1 has been released.

IMPORTANT REQUEST: A topic has been opened on the github page to discuss the future development of pg_partman and support for trigger-based partitioning. A plan is currently in place to begin dropping trigger-based support upon the EOL for PostgreSQL 10 on November 10, 2022. Feedback is requested for use-cases that could potentially change these plans and continue supporting trigger-based partitioning until native partitioning better supports them.

Version 4.6.1 brings significantly better support for running in environments with customized search paths. Other changes of note are:

  • Nanosecond epoch partitioning support
  • Better support for arbitrary time-based intervals, specifically around months and years.
  • Additional features and bug fixes for this and prior releases can be found in the CHANGELOG.
