Welcome to the April 2024 community newsletter for the Cloudberry Database project. Let's explore what our Cloudberry Database community happened in this month.

New Release

We want to make our release often and quickly to ship the latest features and bug fixes of Cloudberry Database. We're on the way. Cloudberry Database 1.5.2 was just shipped with lots of updates. You can view the changelogs and download v1.5.2 to try on the release page.

In the past weeks, we upgraded the bootcamp program to support the Cloudberry Database 1.5.1 version. Along with the new version 1.5.2, we will support it in the following weeks.

Bootcamp is one Docker-based Sandbox, which is tailored to help you gain a basic understanding of Cloudberry Database's capabilities and features a range of materials, including tutorials, sample code, and crash courses.


We added a bunch of documents to the Cloudberry Database, including cloudberrydb-site#75, cloudberrydb-site#87, and cloudberrydb-site#70. Also, we are working on the web page translation pull request cloudberrydb-site#118 review.
