March 2022 Community Recap
Hi! I’m Tabby Worthington.
If you’re spending time in our Community spaces, you’ve probably seen me checking in to help out! I joined the team as our Technical Community Manager. My background is in technical support and community in the fields of Software and Video Game Development. I also love social media and binge-watching streaming videos while working on crafting projects. I’m a self-taught knitter and made the switch to crochet while in quarantine. I live in Houston, Texas, where I share my time with 3 cats, my human family, and my friends. Please say hello and introduce yourself when you see me around. I’d like to meet you!
Liquibase 4.9.1 Released
This release contains Liquibase Version 4.9, including the checks.run and checks.show Maven goals, quality checks, JSON objects, community-contributed pull requests, Liquibase Community and Liquibase Pro bug fixes, and other notable changes. Version 4.9.1 is a patch release that fixes the MANIFEST.MF location in the liquibase.jar file for tools that require the MANIFEST.MF file to be the first entry in the jar archive. These updates also include a breaking change in the Liquibase global configuration for the secureParsing parameter to prevent the entity resolver from scanning the network for missing XSDs.
To learn more about these changes, read the 4.9 and 4.9.1 release notes.
