We’re excited to unveil pg_timetable v5.6, a significant release that takes your PostgreSQL job scheduling to a new level. In this release, we’ve introduced several key enhancements and features that empower you to manage and automate your database tasks precisely and flexibly.

One of the standout features in pg_timetable v5.6 is the addition of the chain delay start functionality. Another game-changing addition is the enhanced chain error handling. From now you can execute any arbitrary SQL command if the chain fails.

We’ve included a range of other improvements and updates to enhance your experience:

  • We’ve bumped the Go version to v1.21, ensuring that pg_timetable stays current with the latest developments in the Go ecosystem.
  • We’ve refactored autonomous and remote task execution. This refinement ensures smoother and more efficient execution of your tasks, reducing the risk of interruptions and failures.
  • We’ve addressed a rare bug by resetting the session before returning a connection to the pool. This fix ensures the stability and integrity of your parallel processes.

The full changelog is available on the v5.6 release page. We want to thank all contributors and users for their help. If you want to contribute to pg_timetable and help to make it better:
