Liquibase 3.0.3 Released

Liquibase 3.0.3 has been officially released. As always, you can download from the Liquibase download page and the new version should be working its way through the maven repository system. If you have questions or comments you can visit the forums at

The 3.0.3 release is primarily a bug fix release, major categories of bugs fixed include:

  • updateSQL output goes to STDOUT rather than STDERR. NOTE: This is what people expect, but if you are working around this bug you will have to update your scripts
  • Fixes around data type parsing and handling
  • Issues with the diff/generateChangeLog logic
  • Informix-specific bugfixes

There is a new feature in 3.0.3 to control whether schema names are included in the SQL. This is particularly helpful in updateSQL mode to create schema-independent scripts. The new flag is called “outputDefaultSchema” and “outputDefaultCatalog”
