February Community Recap
Oh, February! A mix of cheesy Valentine’s tweets (this one is extra cringey), an unprecedented snowstorm (shout out to Texans), and an epic, bug-smashing release! The shortest month of the year felt just like that… short, but packed with all sorts of updates from our Liquibase Community.
Liquibase 4.3.1 released!
Liquibase users will enjoy multiple enhancements and bug fixes. Here are some of the highlights:
HistoryCommandTestnow runs with systems with a non-US default locale (#1078)
SetColumnRemarkssupport for MySQL (#942)
- Implemented Boolean data type support for DB2 LUW (#966)
dropPrimaryKeychange function with a
dropIndexattribute is now available for XML users in the XSD file. (#1629)
We’d like to give a big thank you shoutout to the following community members for all of their contributions to this release:
Nikolas Falco, osganian, dm-ion, Michael Kindermann, Michael Hausl, Tsvi, Stephane, zyzyzy523, Andrea, Nathan
