What's New in TiDB Operator 1.4

TiDB Operator 1.4 introduces the following key features, which helps you manage TiDB clusters and the tools more easily in terms of extensibility and usability.

Compatibility changes

Due to the change in #4683, the feature of modifying storage is disabled by default. If you want to resize the PVC for a component, you need to first enable this feature.

Rolling upgrade changes

Due to the change in #4493, if you deploy TiCDC without setting the log-file configuration item, the rolling upgrade of TiDB Operator to v1.4.0-alpha.1 and later versions will cause TiCDC to be rolling recreated.
