July Community Recap

August 2, 2021
July Community Recap

Happy July and happy Summer Olympics! It’s inspiring (and quite fun) to watch the world’s best athletes compete against one another. Whether it’s synchronized diving or equestrian show jumping, I’ve always enjoyed the patriotic spirit.

For me, the greatest takeaway from the Olympics has nothing to do with medals or pride of country, but rather the themes of global unity and commonality that we celebrate during this season. It’s a special thing and it reminds me of why I love working with the Liquibase community. We’re a group of people that span across a big world, yet we’re united closely over something as cool as Liquibase. How neat is that? Aside from watching the Olympics, it’s been a busy month for the Liquibase! Let’s dive in.

Liquibase 4.4.2 is now available!

This bugfix release was made possible by many brilliant people in the community who submitted pull requests or issues. Thank you to the following contributors:
