This page lists additions and changes in v19.1.10 since v19.1.9.

  • For a comprehensive summary of features in v19.1, see the v19.1 GA release notes.
  • To upgrade to the latest production release of CockroachDB, see this article.

Cockroach Labs has discovered a bug relating to incremental backups, for CockroachDB v19.1.0 - v19.1.11. If a backup coincides with an in-progress index creation (backfill), RESTORE, or IMPORT, it is possible that a subsequent incremental backup will not include all of the indexed, restored or imported data.

For more information, including other affected versions, see Technical Advisory 63162.

Docker image

$ docker pull cockroachdb/cockroach-unstable:v19.1.10

Security updates

  • HTTP endpoints beginning with /debug/ now require a valid admin login session. #50491

Bug fixes

  • Previously, HTTP requests would start to fail with error 503 "transport: authentication handshake failed: io: read/write on closed pipe" and never become possible again until restarting the node. This has been fixed. This bug has existed since v2.1 or earlier. #48483
  • Previously, when the value passed to --drain-wait was very small, but non-zero, cockroach quit in certain cases would not proceed to perform a hard shutdown. This has been corrected. This bug was present in v19.1.9, v19.2.7, and v20.1.1. #49365
  • Fixed a RocksDB bug that could result in inconsistencies in rare circumstances. #50510

Build changes

  • Release Docker images are now built on Debian 9.12. #50480

Doc updates

  • Updated guidance on node decommissioning. #7304
