We have now transitioned into the CockroachDB 2.1 Beta phase and will be releasing weekly until the GA release. This week's release includes PostgreSQL compatibility enhancements, general usability improvements, performance improvements, and bug fixes. In addition, we want to highlight a few major benefits:
- Automatic performance optimizations - Range leases are now automatically rebalanced throughout the cluster to even out the amount of QPS being handled by each server.
Better controls for geo-distributed clusters - We’ve added more sophisticated support for controlling the network interfaces to use in certain situations, so nodes can prefer local, private IPs for inter-DC communication, and only use public IPs when making hops that must go over the open internet. See the
--locality-advertise-addrflag of the
cockroach startcommand for more details.
This week’s release notes are too long for the forum (exceeding the character limit by 10k characters). They can be read in full on the docs site.
