Pgpool Global Development Group is pleased to announce the availability of Pgpool-II 4.2 beta1.

This is not intended to be used in production but is close to the
release version. So users are encouraged to test it out

V4.2 contains new features and enhancements, including:

- Some items in the configuration file pgpool.conf are vastly enhanced for
  easier configuration and administration.
- Implement logging_collector for easier log management.
- Implement log_disconnections to collect disconnection logs.
- Implement pg_enc and pg_md5 to allow to register multiple passwords at once.
- Allow to show statistics of health check by using SHOW POOL_HEALTH_CHECK_STATS command, 
  and also allow to show statistics of issued SQL by using SHOW POOL_BACKEND_STATS command.
- New PCP command pcp_reload_config is added.
- Now it is possible to omit write_function_list and read_only_function_list by
  looking at system catalog information.
- Add new clustering mode snapshot_isolation_mode which guarantees not
  only data modifications to multiple PostgreSQL but read consistency.
- Support LDAP authentication between clients and Pgpool-II.
- Add ssl_crl_file and ssl_passphrase_command to SSL configuration.
- Import PostgreSQL 13's SQL parser.
