I’m pleased to announce the release of Debezium 1.9.4.Final!

This release primarily focuses on bugfixes and stability; and is the recommended update for all users from earlier versions. This release contains 32 resolved issues overall.

I am thrilled to share that Debezium 2.0.0.Alpha2 has been released!

This release is packed with tons of bugfixes and improvements, 110 issues resolved in total. Just, WOW!

A few noteworthy changes include incremental snapshots gaining support for regular expressions and a new stop signal. We also did some housekeeping and removed a number of deprecated configuration options and as well as the legacy MongoDB oplog implementation.

Lets take a look at these in closer detail.

As the summer nears, I’m excited to announce the release of Debezium 1.9.3.Final!

This release primarily focuses on bugfixes and stability; however, there are some notable feature enhancements. Lets take a moment to cool off and "dive" into these new features in a bit of detail :).

As you probably noticed, we have started work on Debezium 2.0. One of the planned changes for the 2.0 release is to switch to Java 11 as a baseline. While some Java build providers still support Java 8, other Java 8 distributions already reached their end of life/support. Users are moving to Java 11 anyways, as surveys like New Relic’s State of the Java Ecosystem Report indicate. But it is not only matter of support: Java 11 comes with various performance improvements, useful tools like JDK Flight Recorder, which was open-sourced in Java 11, and more. So we felt it was about time to start thinking about using a more recent JDK as the baseline for Debezium, and the new major release is a natural milestone when to do the switch.

This release is the first of several planned pre-releases of Debezium 2.0 over the next five months. Each pre-release plans to focus on strategic changes in the hope that as we move forward, changes can be easily tested and regressions addressed quickly.

In this release, some of the most notable changes include requiring Java 11 to use Debezium or any of its components, the removal of wal2json support for PostgreSQL and the legacy MySQL connector implementation, as well as some notable features such as improved Debezium Server Google Pub/Sub sink support, and a multitude of bugfixes. Let’s take a look at a few of these.
