CockroachDB 21.2 Release Is Available TODAY!

I’m super chuffed to share that CockroachDB 21.2 is available TODAY via both Dedicated and Serverless offerings!

CockroachDB 21.2 puts more power into the hands of developers by making it easier to build against CockroachDB. We’ve added more depth and breadth to CockroachDB’s SQL functionality, more query performance data, and additional integrations with popular developer tools like Alembic and Sequelize.

We’ve also improved the scalability and flexibility of CockroachDB’s change data capture (CDC) to let developers more easily build event-driven systems. For example, now you can:

  • Customize CockroachDB to your application’s needs with new SQL syntax like ON UPDATE and expression-based indexes.
  • Optimize SQL performance with more workload data now available in the DB Console and straight from the CLI, including new “index usage stats” that show whether an index is being used.
  • Stream data to more external tools at massive scale with updates to CDC, including a new webhook-style sink that lets you send changefeed messages to any http endpoint.

We can’t wait to hear what you build next. Check out the full release notes here!
