This release contains performance improvements and bug fixes since the 2.13.1 release. We recommend that you upgrade at the next
available opportunity.

In addition, it includes these noteworthy features:

  • Ability to change compression settings on existing compressed hypertables at any time.
    New compression settings take effect on any new chunks that are compressed after the change.
  • Reduced locking requirements during chunk recompression
  • Limiting tuple decompression during DML operations to avoid decompressing a lot of tuples and causing storage issues (100k limit, configurable)
  • Helper functions for determining compression settings
  • Plan-time chunk exclusion for real-time Continuous Aggregate by constifying the cagg_watermark function call, leading to faster queries using real-time continuous aggregates

For this release only, you will need to restart the database before running ALTER EXTENSION

Multi-node support removal announcement
Following the deprecation announcement for Multi-node in TimescaleDB 2.13,
Multi-node is no longer supported starting with TimescaleDB 2.14.

TimescaleDB 2.13 is the last version that includes multi-node support. Learn more about it here.

If you want to migrate from multi-node TimescaleDB to single-node TimescaleDB, read the
migration documentation.

Deprecation notice: recompress_chunk procedure
TimescaleDB 2.14 is the last version that will include the recompress_chunk procedure. Its
functionality will be replaced by the compress_chunk function, which, starting on TimescaleDB 2.14,
works on both uncompressed and partially compressed chunks.
The compress_chunk function should be used going forward to fully compress all types of chunks or even recompress
old fully compressed chunks using new compression settings (through the newly introduced recompress optional parameter).
