10.08.2015 - PostgreSQL 9.5 Beta 1 Released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group announces today that the first beta release of PostgreSQL 9.5 is available for download. This release should contain all features and APIs which will be in the final release with few, if any, changes. Users should begin testing their applications against 9.5 Beta 1 in preparation for the final release.

Changes Since Alpha2

Many bugs and issues reported by our users and contributors have been fixed since the release of Alpha2. These include:

  • significant adjustments to Row Level Security (RLS) semantics
  • deadlock with LWLock improvements
  • index corruption issue with BRIN indexes
  • couldn't connect using PGSSLMODE=require on Windows
  • various problems with commit timestamp tracking
  • hash join memory leak
  • inconsistent behavior of jsonb_set with array append

In particular, the semantics of Row Level Security have been changed to be consistent with the existing PostgreSQL GRANT-based permissions system. As an example, RLS now applies both the INSERT policies and the SELECT policies when INSERT with RETURNING is used. Users should test the RLS application of RLS policies and re-test any existing RLS configuration to ensure that there are no regressions for their use-cases. For more information, see the documentation on Create Policy and RLS.

If you reported an issue while testing PostgreSQL 9.5, please download Beta1 and test whether that issue has been fixed. If you have not yet tested version 9.5, now is the time for you to help out PostgreSQL development. Known issues which are still open are listed on the Open Items page.

Beta Schedule

This is first beta release of version 9.5, indicating that very few user-visible feature changes are expected before final release. The PostgreSQL Project will release additional betas as required for testing, followed by one or more release candidates, until the final release in late 2015. For more information, and suggestions on how to test the betas, see the Beta Testing page.

Full documentation and release notes of the new version is available online and also installs with PostgreSQL. Also see the What's New page for details on some features.

09.28.2015 - Barman 1.5.0 released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

2ndQuadrant is proud to announce the release of version 1.5.0 of Barman, Backup and Recovery Manager for PostgreSQL.

This major release features the get-wal command, which turns Barman into a WAL mine from which you can extract any transaction log file you need. Barman can now be easily integrated with any PostgreSQL standby server as a fallback method for WAL synchronisation.

Another important new feature is retry hook scripts that can be executed before or after a backup command or the archive of a WAL file. Differently from a standard hook script, already available in Barman, a retry hook script is executed indefinitely until it succeeds.

With version 1.5.0, Barman enhances its robustness, by adding checks on "wal_level" settings, by forbidding the deletion of a running backup, by requesting a successful "check" before initiating a backup, etc.

Barman now checks for conflicting paths, making sure that the same directory cannot be shared by more than a target (i.e. base backups, WAL archive, incoming directory, etc.), even across different servers within the same installation.

In terms of user experience, the "active" option grants users to temporarily disable a server in Barman, for operational purposes, while still accessing its catalogue.

Minor bugs have also been fixed.

For a complete list of changes, see the "Release Notes" section below.

Features in detail

Barman get-wal : No more standby servers that fall out of synchronisation with the master server, thanks to Barman's "get-wal" command. Design complex HA and DR architectures of PostgreSQL databases, knowing that you can now rely on an 'infinite' source of WAL files for any of your servers. Look at the "barman-wal-restore" script for an idea on how you can integrate "get-wal" with your PostgreSQL standby servers.

Retry hook scripts : You can now extend Barman by plugging your custom scripts before and after taking a backup operation or archiving a WAL file, knowing that Barman will repeat them until they succeed. You can now build your own pipeline around Barman, for example by storing a WAL in the cloud once it reaches Barman.

Release notes

  • Add "barman_lock_directory" global option to change the location of lock files (by default: 'barman_home')

  • Forbid to delete a running backup
  • Analyse include directives of a PostgreSQL server during "backup" and "recover" operations

Enhanced alpha release of new data analytics application available.

2ndQuadrant is pleased to announce further enhancements to 2UDA (pronounced 'Tudor'), our new data analytics application suite currently under development, and available to try now.

This second alpha release brings a number of enhancements and product updates, based on user feedback and the continuous development of the core applications 2UDA unifies:

  • PostgreSQL server daemon is now an OS service (named "org.2ndQ.2UDA.postgres-9.5") on OS X
  • PostgreSQL server daemon is now an OS service (named "2uda-postgresql-9.5") on Linux (tested on Ubuntu 14.04, CentOS 7, openSUSE 13.2, & Fedora 22)
  • Windows installer is now certified from Microsoft and signed digitally
  • Latest PostgreSQL 9.5 after its Alpha 2 release has been included. Details of changes are listed
  • Latest Orange 3 has been included. This version uses the new tablesample patch in PostgreSQL rather than relying on blocksample extension.
  • Latest LibreOffice 5 has been included.
  • The installer now checks for server readiness before loading sample database. This prevents a bug where sample data got loaded while the server was still consolidating its connections.
  • Other small bugs and tweaks.
