While fall weather is in full swing, the Debezium community is not letting the unusually low, frigid temperatures get the best of us. It is my pleasure to announce the release of Debezium 1.0.0.Beta3!

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

  • Built against Kafka Connect 2.3.1 (DBZ-1612)

  • Renamed drop_on_stop configuration parameter to drop.on.stop (DBZ-1595)

  • Standardized source information for Cassandra connector (DBZ-1408)

  • Propagate MongoDB replicator exceptions so they are visible from Kafka Connect’s status endpoint (DBZ-1583)

  • Envelope methods should accept Instant rather than long values for timestamps (DBZ-1607)

  • Erroneously reporting no tables captured (DBZ-1519)

  • Avoid Oracle connector attempting to analyze tables (DBZ-1569)

  • Toasted columns should contain null in before rather than __debezium_unavailable_value (DBZ-1570)

  • Support PostgreSQL 11+ TRUNCATE operations using pgoutput decoder (DBZ-1576)

  • PostgreSQL connector times out in schema discovery for databases with many tables (DBZ-1579)

  • Value of ts_ms is not correct duing snapshot processing (DBZ-1588)

  • Heartbeats are not generated for non-whitelisted tables (DBZ-1592)

Additionally there were improvements to the Docker container images to reduce their overall size and some build infrastructure improvements to apply automatic code formatting rules. Details about code formatting changes can be found in the CONTRIBUTE.md file.

In total, this release contains 27 changes.

Thanks to all the community members who helped make this happen: David Feinblum, René Kerner, Luis Garcés-Erice, Jeremy Finzel, Mike Graham, Yang Yang, Addison Higham

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.
