    • #1933, #2109, Add a minimal health check endpoint - @steve-chavez
      • For enabling this, the admin-server-port config must be set explictly
      • A <host>:<admin_server_port>/live endpoint is available for checking if postgrest is running on its port/socket. 200 OK = alive, 503 = dead.
      • A <host>:<admin_server_port>/ready endpoint is available for checking a correct internal state(the database connection plus the schema cache). 200 OK = ready, 503 = not ready.
    • #1988, Add the current user to the request log on stdout - @DavidLindbom, @wolfgangwalther
    • #1823, Add the ability to run postgrest without any configuration. - @wolfgangwalther

    • #1917, Add error codes with the "PGRST" prefix to the error response body to differentiate PostgREST errors from PostgreSQL errors - @laurenceisla
    • #1917, Normalize the error response body by always having the detail and hint error fields with a null value if they are empty - @laurenceisla

      • Resource embedding works and the embedded rows will go into the properties key
      • In case of multiple geometries in the same table, you can choose which one will go into the geometry key with the usual ?select query parameter.
    • #1082, Add security definitions to the OpenAPI output - @laurenceisla

      • Can generate the plan for different media types using the for parameter: Accept: application/vnd.pgrst.plan; for="application/vnd.pgrst.object"
      • Different options for the plan can be used with the options parameter: Accept: application/vnd.pgrst.plan; options=analyze|verbose|settings|buffers|wal
      • The plan can be obtained in text or json by using different media type suffixes: Accept: application/vnd.pgrst.plan+text and Accept: application/vnd.pgrst.plan+json.

    • #2107, Clarify error for failed schema cache load. - @steve-chavez
      • From Database connection lost. Retrying the connection to Could not query the database for the schema cache. Retrying.
    • #1771, Fix silently ignoring filter on a non-existent embedded resource - @steve-chavez
    • #2152, Remove functions, which are uncallable because of unnamend arguments from schema cache and OpenAPI output. - @wolfgangwalther

    • #2155, Ignore max-rows on POST, PATCH, PUT and DELETE - @steve-chavez
    • #2254, Fix inferring a foreign key column as a primary key column on views - @steve-chavez
    • #2070, Restrict generated many-to-many relationships - @steve-chavez
      • Only adds many-to-many relationships when: a table has FKs to two other tables and these FK columns are part of the table's PK columns.
    • #2278, Allow casting to types with underscores and numbers(e.g. select=oid_array::_int4) - @steve-chavez
    • #2277, #2238, #1643, Prevent views from breaking one-to-many/many-to-one embeds when using column or FK as target - @steve-chavez
      • When using a column or FK as target for embedding(/tbl?select=*,col-or-fk(*)), only tables are now detected and views are not.
      • You can still use a column or an inferred FK on a view to embed a table(/view?select=*,col-or-fk(*))
    • #2317, Increase the db-pool-timeout to 1 hour to prevent frequent high connection latency - @steve-chavez
    • #2341, The search path now correctly identifies schemas with uppercase and special characters in their names (regression) - @laurenceisla

    ๐Ÿ”„ Changed

    • #2001, Return 204 No Content without Content-Type for RPCs returning VOID - @wolfgangwalther
      • Previously, those RPCs would return "null" as a body with Content-Type: application/json.
    • #2156, limit/offset now limits the affected rows on UPDATE/DELETE - @steve-chavez
      • Previously, limit/offset only limited the returned rows but not the actual updated rows
    • #2155, max-rows is no longer applied on POST/PATCH/PUT/DELETE returned rows - @steve-chavez
      • This was misleading because the affected rows were not really affected by max-rows, only the returned rows were limited
    • #2070, Restrict generated many-to-many relationships - @steve-chavez
      • A primary key that contains the foreign key columns is now needed for generating many-to-many relationships.
    • #2277, Views now are not detected when embedding using the column or FK as target (/view?select=*,column(*)) - @steve-chavez
      • This embedding form was easily made ambiguous whenever a new view was added.
      • You can use computed relationships to keep this embedding form working
    • #2312, Using Prefer: return=representation no longer returns a Location header - @laurenceisla
    • #1984, For the cases where one to one relationships are detected, json objects will be returned instead of json arrays of length 1
      • If you wish to override this behavior, you can use computed relationships to return arrays again

    • #1075, Allow filtering top-level resource based on embedded resources filters. This is enabled by adding !inner to the embedded resource, e.g. /projects?select=*,clients!inner(*)&clients.id=eq.12- @steve-chavez, @Iced-Sun
    • #1857, Make GUC names for headers, cookies and jwt claims compatible with PostgreSQL v14 - @laurenceisla, @robertsosinski
      • Getting the value for a header GUC on PostgreSQL 14 is done using current_setting('request.headers')::json->>'name-of-header' and in a similar way for request.cookies and request.jwt.claims

    • #1875, Fix Location headers in headers only representation for null PK inserts on views - @laurenceisla

    ๐Ÿ”„ Changed

    • #1522, #1528, #1535, Docker images are now built from scratch based on a the static PostgREST executable (#1494) and with Nix instead of a Dockerfile. This reduces the compressed image size from over 30mb to about 4mb - @monacoremo
    • #1461, Location header for POST request is only included when PK is available on the table - @wolfgangwalther
    • #1560, Volatile RPC called with GET now returns 405 Method not Allowed instead of 500 - @wolfgangwalther
    • #1584, #1849 Functions that declare returns composite_type no longer return a single object array by default, only functions with returns setof composite_type return an array of objects - @wolfgangwalther
    • #1604, Change the default logging level to log-level=error. Only requests with a status greater or equal than 500 will be logged. If you wish to go back to the previous behaviour and log all the requests, use log-level=info - @steve-chavez
      • Because currently there's no buffering for logging, defaulting to the error level(minimum logging) increases throughput by around 15% for simple GET queries(no embedding, with filters applied).
    • #1617, Dropped support for PostgreSQL 9.4 - @wolfgangwalther
    • #1679, Renamed config settings with fallback aliases. e.g. max-rows is now db-max-rows, but max-rows is still accepted - @wolfgangwalther
    • #1656, Allow Prefer=headers-only on POST requests and change default to minimal (#1813) - @laurenceisla
    • #1854, Dropped undocumented support for gzip compression (which was surprisingly slow and easily enabled by mistake). In some use-cases this makes Postgres up to 3x faster - @aljungberg
    • #1872, Send startup/worker logs to stderr to differentiate from access logs on stdout - @steve-chavez
