November 2022 Community Recap
December 6, 2022
As we approach the end of the year and the winter holiday season for the northern hemisphere, everyone seems to slow down a bit to take more time for life outside of work. Our community has still been very active in November, and we’re stoked! Here are some cool stats from this month for the Liquibase Community!
- 6% increase in active community members
- 10% increase in new community members
Want to join in the discussion? Find us on your favorite platforms. Let’s take a look at what else our Community focused on in the last month.
We will have a new release coming out in early December, so be on the lookout. In the meantime, here’s what you can expect from the latest release.
Liquibase 4.17.2 Patch Release – November 2, 2022
This is a patch release that upgrades the HSQL driver to remove a security vulnerability. The newest HSQL driver requires Java 11, so if you use HSQL and JAVA 8, you will need to upgrade your Java.
JDBC Driver and Third-Party Library Update
Two updates for the JDBC driver are included in the release.
You can read the complete Release Notes on our docs site for additional info. Full changelog available on GitHub: v4.17.1…v4.17.2
