    • config_initdb
    • config_pgtune
    • contrib
    • ruby
    • yum_pgdg_postgresql
  • Remove deprecated tests

v6.1.3 (2018-04-18)

  • Fix recipes referencing the old helpers

v6.1.2 (2018-04-16)

this will be the last release of the 6.0 series before all recipes are removed from the cookbook

  • Deprecate all recipes

v6.1.1 (2017-03-08)

  • Fix pg gem installation on non-omnibus chef runs
  • Resolve resource cloning deprecation warnings in the ruby recipe
  • Fix issues resolving the timezone on CentOS 7 and probably other distros
  • Test with Delivery local instead of Rake

v6.1.0 (2017-02-18)

  • Fix a method name conflict that caused errors if Chef Sugar was also being used on the run list
  • Revert a previous PR that added support for Postgresql 9.6 as it introduced incorrect configuration values
  • Added Fedora 25 support for pgdg packages
  • Added RHEL 5 support for Postgresql 9.4 pgdg packages
  • Removed testing for RHEL 5 and Ubuntu 12.04 as they are scheduled for EoL in the near future
  • Improvements to Test Kitchen testing to allow more extensive testing in Travis CI
  • Fixed the client recipe on Fedora
  • Added Inspec tests for client installs

v6.0.1 (2017-01-04

  • Fix systemd unit file template

v6.0.0 (2017-01-03)

  • This cookbook now requires Chef 12.1 or later
  • Removed the dependency on the apt cookbook as this functionality is built into modern chef client releases
  • Added a new custom resource for installing extensions. This acts as a replacement for the contrib recipe with minimal backwards compatibility. You can now install / remove extensions into any database. This adds the compat_resource cookbook dependency so we can continue to support Chef 12.1-12.4, which lack custom resource support.
  • The unused get_result_orig helper has been removed. If you utilized this you'll want to move it to your own wrapper cookbook
  • Updates for compatibility with Postgresql 9.5 and 9.6
  • Fixed client package installation on openSUSE Leap 42.2
  • ca-certificates recipe has been deprecated. If ca-certificates package needs to be upgraded the user should do so prior to including this recipe. Package upgrades in community cookbooks are generally a bad idea as this bring in updated packages to production systems. The recipe currently warns if used and will be removed with the next major cookbook release.
  • Fixed RHEL platform detection in the Ruby recipe
  • systemd fixes for RHEL systems
  • Fix systemd service file include when using pgdg packages
  • Package installation now uses multi-package installs to speed up converge times
  • Added integration testing in Travis of the client recipe using a new test cookbook. This will be expanded in the future to cover server installation as well
  • Expanded the specs to test converges on multiple platforms

v5.2.0 (2016-12-30)

  • Updated contacts and links to point to Sous Chefs now
  • Added a Code of Conduct (the Chef CoC)
  • Removed duplicate platforms in the metadata
  • Fix Chef runs with local mode in the server recipe
  • Fix the ruby recipe to not fail when you specify enabling both the apt and yum repos for mixed distro environments
  • Set the postgresql data directory to 700 permissions
  • Added node['postgresql']['pg_gem']['version'] to specify the version of the pg gem to install
  • Cookstyle fixes for the latest cookstyle release
  • Removed test deps from the Gemfile. Rely on ChefDK for base testing deps instead

v5.1.0 (2016-11-01)

  • Maintenance of this cookbook has been migrated from Heavy Water to Sous Chefs -
  • Add support for Chef-Zero (local mode)
  • Don't hardcode the UID / GID on RHEL/Amazon/Suse platforms
