2020.5 Migration Guide
The 2020.5 release brings PSPDFKit Server monitoring via metrics, drops support for PostgreSQL 9.6, and removes the
ROOT_PATH configuration option.
We now expose internal PSPDFKit Server metrics using the StatsD protocol. By using these metrics, you can learn more about the performance of your Server instance and track down production issues. See how to enable metrics in our integration guide and browse the list of available metrics.
With the release of 2020.2.0, we announced support for PostgreSQL 11 and deprecated compatibility with version 9.6.
Now we’re officially dropping support for PostgreSQL 9.6. According to the PostgreSQL versioning policy, version 9.6 will reach its EOL in a year, on 11 Nov 2021, and it will no longer be supported by the Postgres development team. This means there will be no more critical bug fixes and security patches for the 9.6 release line.
For instructions, please refer to either the official PostgreSQL upgrade guide if you’re running the database on-premises, or to your cloud provider’s documentation.
ROOT_PATH configuration option was only necessary to correctly assign the path of the website under which the cookie is valid.
As cookies are no longer used, the
ROOT_PATH configuration option is being removed.
