Liquibase 4.0 Beta 1 Released

Liquibase 4.0 Beta 1 is now available through Liquibase.org. In this new major release, we have integrated dozens of community Pull Requests, addressing well over 100 bugs, in addition to the dozens of updates to the 3.8.x branches.

Beta testing

This release comes with the same risks as all Beta software. We have tested dozens of PRs across multiple environments, interacting with multiple databases, but we cannot test all the wildly diverse ways the community uses Liquibase. This is where the Community comes in. In this Beta we are counting on valuable community members — like you — to put this Beta through your workflow and let us know (and even fix) any issues you encounter in your specific setup and use cases.

How to be a Beta tester

Please check out our Beta Program for details on how to get involved with the Liquibase 4.0 Beta test plan, including code and integrations tested, not tested, and not ready for test yet.

The underlying goal of Beta testing is to uncover, document, and share all the issues that keep you from working how you want to work with Liquibase. Please test your setup and document any problems as a new GitHub issue or GitHub code contribution.

We covered the following broad categories in our testing:

  • Where Liquibase writes output
  • How Liquibase finds files
  • How Liquibase works in integrations
  • How Liquibase interacts with the database
  • How Liquibase Pro interacts with the database
