The CloudNativePG Community has announced version 1.17.0, a new minor
release of the CloudNativePG Operator, which introduces the possibility to
create a new PostgreSQL cluster with a dedicated volume for Write-Ahead Log
(WAL) files. Separating I/O workloads of database (
PGDATA) and WAL files
improves vertical scalability of PostgreSQL clusters, among the others.
In this version, a new command,
destroy, has been added to the
kubectl to help remove an instance and the associated persistent volume
claims from an existing cluster.
Two new labels,
cnpg.io/podRole, are now managed
by the operator on all persistent volume claims that belong to a cluster.
Some minor bugs have been fixed, in particular in the in-place operator upgrade process.
New patch releases are available for all the supported versions, including 1.16.2 and 1.15.4.
With the release of 1.17.0, the 1.15.x minor version will be end of life from 6 October, 2022.
We encourage you to update the operator at your earliest possible convenience.
