Liquibase 3.8.9 Released

Liquibase 3.8.9 is now available through Liquibase.org. We’re continuing to improve everyone’s experience with Liquibase by fixing some bugs and improving existing features.

Bug Fixes & Improvements

For both Liquibase Open Source and Pro users, we made the following improvements:

  • Fixed an issue with how Liquibase handles SMALLINT columns in PostgreSQL when generating a changelog.
  • Improved generateChangeLog command to assume a diffTypes that includes “data” when the dataOutputDirectory parameter is used. Most users looking to export data as part of generateChangeLog can now simply use the dataOutputDirectory parameter without needing to specify diffTypes.
  • Enabled the use of the –schemas parameter to work on either side of the snapshot command.
  • Enabled generateChangeLog in PostgreSQL to correctly order create, function, and trigger statements.
  • Improved the use of dblink objects when using diff command.


All Liquibase users should also check out our continually improving documentation.

You can also see our growing library of videos and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
