Release Notes

Liquibase 4.22.0 – May 11, 2023

Note: We have removed the 4.22.0 release of Liquibase. This version contains an updated algorithm for determining which changes Liquibase needs to deploy to a database. In some situations, the conversion to this new algorithm could result in eligible changes not being deployed to a target database.

Specifically, currently undeployed changesets with the runOnChange=true attribute may not be deployed if they were present in the first execution of Liquibase 4.22.0 against a given target database. If you have not upgraded to Liquibase 4.22.0, you are not impacted by this issue, or if you do not rely on runOnChange changesets which have changed before your upgrade.

We will soon provide more guidance on how to assess and remedy any potential impact for users who have already upgraded to Liquibase 4.22.0. If you are a Liquibase customer and believe you may be impacted by this issue, please open a ticket in our support portal at

Liquibase v4.22.0 is a major release

Full Changelog: v4.21.1...v4.22.0

Notable Changes

The checksum changes in Liquibase version 4.22.0 a major change, which improves whitespace handling in views, procedures, Liquibase Pro stored logic objects, and more. New checksums are silently recalculated upon the initial run of Liquibase 4.22.0 or greater.

No actions is required for the vast majority of users. However, for users who rely on the detection of a changed changeset or have complex workflows, it is recommended that you run liquibase clear-checksums with your current version BEFORE your first operation using the new 4.22.0 version against a database.
