I’m excited to announce the release of Debezium 1.4.0.Alpha2!

This second pass of the 1.4 release line provides a few useful new features:

  • New API hook for the PostgreSQL Snapshotter interface

  • Field renaming using ExtractNewRecordState SMT’s add.fields and add.headers configurations

I’m excited to announce the release of Debezium 1.3.1.Final!

This release primarily focuses on bugs that were reported after the 1.3 release. Most importantly, the following bugs were fixed related to the Debezium connector for Oracle LogMiner adapter thanks to the continued feedback by the Debezium community.

  • SQLExceptions thrown when using Oracle LogMiner (DBZ-2624)

  • LogMiner mining session stopped due to WorkerTask killed (DBZ-2629)

Traditionally, MySQL has been used to power most of the backend services at Bolt. We’ve designed our schemas in a way that they’re sharded into different MySQL clusters. Each MySQL cluster contains a subset of data and consists of one primary and multiple replication nodes.

Once data is persisted to the database, we use the Debezium MySQL Connector to capture data change events and send them to Kafka. This gives us an easy and reliable way to communicate changes between back-end microservices.

Hello everyone, my name is Anisha Mohanty and I recently joined Red Hat and the Debezium team.

I started my journey with Red Hat in April 2020 after completing my graduation. I was introduced to open source in my early college days, but I wasn’t aware of how organizations work and wanted to get the essence of open source ethics and values. That is something that I am fascinated to learn as I joined Red Hat.

My work started under the Data Virtualization team with Teiid and then under the GRAPHQLCRUD project which is a standard for a generic query interface on top of GraphQL. The project has started well and is in great shape right now. We have successfully added CRUD capabilities, paging, and filtering specifications.

Coming to Debezium, I first heard about it as some DV members started contributing here, well back then it was a completely new thing for me. I started exploring more, and it was not long when I had my first interaction with Gunnar and Jiri. With a warm welcome and great team here, I am really excited to work with the Debezium Community.

I am excited to announce the release of Debezium 1.4.0.Alpha1!

This first pass of the 1.4 release line provides a few useful new features:

  • New Vitess connector

  • Allow fine-grained selection of snapshotted tables

Overall, the community fixed 41 issues for this release. Let’s take a closer look at some of the highlights.
