History is in the making as Debezium begins to sprint to its 1.0 milestone. It’s my pleasure to announce the release of Debezium 1.0.0.Beta1!

This new Debezium release includes several notable new features, enhancements, and fixes:

  • ExtractNewDocumentState and EventRouter SMTs propagate heartbeat & schema change messages (DBZ-1513)

  • Provides alternative mapping for INTERVAL columns via interval.handling.mode (DBZ-1498)

  • Ensure message keys have the right column order (DBZ-1507)

  • Warn of table locking problems in connector logs (DBZ-1280)

Additionally, several PostgreSQL issues were fixed to improve snapshotting large databases environments (DBZ-685) and specific circumstances where write ahead logs (WAL) would continue to consume diskspace (DBZ-892).

In total, this release contains 18 fixes.

Thanks to all the community members who helped make this happen: Purushotham Pushpavanthar, Jeremy Finzel, Grant Cooksey

About Debezium

Debezium is an open source distributed platform that turns your existing databases into event streams, so applications can see and respond almost instantly to each committed row-level change in the databases. Debezium is built on top of Kafka and provides Kafka Connect compatible connectors that monitor specific database management systems. Debezium records the history of data changes in Kafka logs, so your application can be stopped and restarted at any time and can easily consume all of the events it missed while it was not running, ensuring that all events are processed correctly and completely. Debezium is open source under the Apache License, Version 2.0.
