As many of you know, a few years after starting the Liquibase open-source project, I joined the team at Datical. For those who are unaware, Datical is a commercial solution built on top of Liquibase. Datical is also the primary maintainer of the Liquibase open source project - though we are always looking for more engaged community members who might be interested in being stewards to the project along with me. While I’ve enjoyed the years of growth - both Liquibase and Datical have seen, I had always hoped for a better transition from the open-source project I founded to the commercial software that I now help architect. Finally, the wait is over – and I’m tremendously excited to announce that Datical’s latest release supports users bringing in their own XML changesets and changelogs from Liquibase.

Mark your calendars!
Just a reminder that the 2018 Liquibase Community Survey is still open through April 14th.
Listening to feedback from the community is a vital part of any open source project and it has frankly been a little too long since I’ve had the chance to hear the voice of those who make use of Liquibase. As I make more time to devote to the project, I’m keen to understand your perspective – if nothing else, to inform my priorities as I go through pull requests and think through additional updates.
For those of you not watching the download page every day, Liquibase 3.5.5 was released on Feb 15th.
After far too long, the Liquibase-Hibernate plugin has been updated to support Hibernate 5.x!!
The issue that caused me to pull the 3.5.2 release turned out to be a false alarm.
