repmgr 3.0.3 released

What is repmgr?

repmgr is an open source package which greatly simplifies the process of setting up and managing replication using streaming replication within a cluster of PostgreSQL servers. Taking advantage of features introduced since PostgreSQL 9.3, repmgr builds on PostgreSQL's core functionality to provide a smooth, user-friendly way of working with the complexities of replication and failover management in high-availability environments.

repmgr consists of two core tools - the repmgr command line interface, which provides functionality for adminstering replication such as cloning standby servers, and repmgrd, a background daemon which monitors nodes in a replication cluster and provides automatic failover support.

The current repmgr major version, 3.0, introduces a number of new features which further simplify replication administration:

Additionally many usability improvements have been made based on user feedback, including better error reporting, removing the requirement to set pg_bindir if PostgreSQL binaries are in the default path, and a command line option to examine a server's configuration and report any changes required for setting up replication.

Note that repmgr 3.0.3 supports PostgreSQL 9.3 and later only.

repmgr 3.0.3 has been tested against PostgreSQL 9.5rc1 and we anticipate it will be fully compatible with the final PostgreSQL 9.5 release.
