It’s my pleasure to announce the first release of the Debezium 1.9 series, 1.9.0.Alpha1!

With the new year comes a new release! The Debezium 1.9.0.Alpha1 release comes with quite a number of fixes and improvements, most notably improved metrics and Oracle ROWID data type support.

It’s my great pleasure to announce the release of Debezium 1.8.0.Final!

Besides a strong focus on the Debezium connector for MongoDB (more on that below), the 1.8 release brings support for Postgres' logical decoding messages, support for configuring SMTs and topic creation settings in the Debezium UI, and much more.

Overall, the community has fixed 242 issues for this release. A big thank you to everyone who helped to make this release happen on time, sticking to our quarterly release cadence!

TL,DR: Debezium is NOT affected by the recently disclosed remote code execution vulnerability in log4j2 (CVE-2021-44228); The log4j-1.2.17.jar shipped in Debezium’s container images contains a class JMSAppender, which is subject to a MODERATE vulnerability (CVE-2021-4104). This appender is NOT used by default, i.e. access to log4j’s configuration is required in order to exploit this CVE. As a measure of caution, we have decided to remove the JMSAppender class from Debezium’s container images as of version 1.7.2.Final, released today.

On Dec 10th, a remote code execution vulnerability in the widely used log4j2 library was published (CVE-2021-44228). Debezium, just like Apache Kafka and Kafka Connect, does not use log4j2 and therefore is NOT affected by this CVE.

I’m very excited to announce the release of Debezium 1.8.0.CR1!

As were near the final release due out next week, this release focused heavily on bugfixes. Yet this release includes incremental snapshot support for MongoDB! Overall, not less than 34 issues have been fixed for this release.

Let’s take a closer look at some of them.

The Debezium UI team continues to add support for more features, allowing users to more easily configure connectors. In this article, we’ll describe and demonstrate the UI support for topic automatic creation. Read further for more information, including a video demo!
