I’m very happy to share the news that Debezium 1.2.0.Beta2 has been released!

Core feature of this release is Debezium Server, a dedicated stand-alone runtime for Debezium, opening up its open-source change data capture capabilities towards messaging infrastructure like Amazon Kinesis.

Overall, the community has fixed 25 issues since the Beta1 release, some of which we’re going to explore in more depth in the remainder of this post.

This release brings user-facing schema change topics for the SQL Server, Db2 and Oracle connectors, a new message transformation for content-based change event routing, support for a range of array column types in Postgres and much more. We also upgraded the Debezium container images for Apache Kafka and Kafka Connect to version 2.5.0.

As it’s the answer to all questions in life, the number of issues fixed for this release is exactly 42!
