1 minute read

03 October 2023: EnterpriseDB is proud to announce the release of Barman version 3.9.0, a Backup and Recovery Manager for PostgreSQL.

Release Notes

  • Allow barman switch-wal --force to be run against PG>=14 if the user has the pg_checkpoint role (thanks to toydarian for this patch).

  • Log the current check at info level when a check timeout occurs.

  • The minimum size of an upload chunk when using barman-cloud-backup with either S3 or Azure Blob Storage can now be specified using the --min-chunk-size option.

  • backup_compression = none is supported when using pg_basebackup.

  • For PostgreSQL 15 and later: the allowed backup_compression_level values for zstd and lz4 have been updated to match those allowed by pg_basebackup.

  • For PostgreSQL versions earlier than 15: backup_compression_level = 0 can now be used with backup_compression = gzip.

  • Bug fixes:

    • Fix barman recover on platforms where Multiprocessing uses spawn by default when starting new processes.


Source code and wheel file can be downloaded from release 3.9.0 page.
