I understand this is late, but a colleague alerted me to the following behaviour change: If you recover a server with default settings, it is our understanding that pg_isready will now return true immediately after the consistent state is reached and possibly well before recovery had actually ended (depending on the amount of outstanding wal). As hot standby works with log shipping, this is independent of the recovery.conf settings, i.e. even if standby_mode and primary_conninfo are not set. So if one was monitoring recovery like that before and expects pg_isready to only return true once the recovery is fully complete, this will now have to be adjusted. Also, if the recovered server is to be used for transactions, there will now be a window where the server accepts connections, but is in read-only mode. Before, one had the make the concious choice to set hot_standby to get the behaviour, now it might be surprising to users, or maybe I'm overthinking this? If that is indeed the case, maybe it should be mentioned more prominently in the documentation and/or get highlighted in the release notes?
