2.2. Tungsten Replicator 6.1.13 GA (27 May 2021)

Version End of Life. Not Yet Set

Release 6.1.13 contains a number of bug fixes, and contains updated drivers for replicating to newer releases of PostgreSQL.

Behavior Changes

The following changes have been made to Tungsten Replicator and may affect existing scripts and integration tools. Any scripts or environment which make use of these tools should check and update for the new configuration:

  • Command-line Tools

    • Ensure that all tools are available in the appropriate software packages.

      Issues: CT-1518

Improvements, new features and functionality

  • Command-line Tools

    • A new utility, tungsten_skip_seqno (in [Tungsten Replicator 6.1 Manual]) has been added which allows events to be skipped based on filters, allowing the Tungsten Replicator to come back online with less manual intervention.

      Issues: CT-42, CT-1087, CT-1453, CT-1511

  • Heterogeneous Replication

    • Upgraded PostgreSQL JDBC driver to the latest release to allow compatibility with PostgreSQL 12.

      Issues: CT-1521

Bug Fixes

  • Command-line Tools

    • This release includes a wide range of improvements and bug fixes for tpm (in [Tungsten Replicator 6.1 Manual]) and other command-line tools.

      Issues: CT-1509

    • Fixes an issue where the undeployall (in [Tungsten Replicator 6.1 Manual]) command would create a root owned wrapper.log in the ./tools directory.

      Issues: CT-1516

    • Fixed a tpm (in [Tungsten Replicator 6.1 Manual]) call to systemd services listing which was making tpm (in [Tungsten Replicator 6.1 Manual]) wrongly fall back to init.d. This issue was found when testing MariaDB 10.0.

      Issues: CT-1524

    • tpm (in [Tungsten Replicator 6.1 Manual]) now supports new MariaDB my_print_defaults flag --defaults-file

      Issues: CT-1528

  • Core Replicator

    • Fixes an issue where null values in JSON structures were incorrectly quoted once replicated.

      For example :

      [{"example":null}]

      would be replicated as

      [{"example":"null"}]

      Issues: CT-1523
