General Availability of PostgreSQL 14.4

Instaclustr is pleased to announce the availability of a new PostgreSQL® out of band minor release 14.4 on the Instaclustr Managed Platform. 

This release includes a variety of bug fixes, but the primary one is to revert an optimization that results in a bug that could cause corrupted indexes created using the CONCURRENTLY option. It is recommended that after applying this upgrade, any indexes using CONCURRENTLY should be re-created.

It is rare for the PostgreSQL project to perform out of band minor release, however they do occasionally happen when there is a particularly nasty issue like this. As with all PostgreSQL releases, there is much more information available in the official PostgreSQL release notes, as well as in the release notes for each version of the documentation. 

For customers who are running PostgreSQL on the managed platform, we will use our maintenance event system to schedule an appropriate time to upgrade your clusters. If you would like to upgrade sooner, or have any questions, please reach out to our Support team.

For customers wanting to experience a PostgreSQL cluster on the Instaclustr Managed Platform, you can sign up and create a PostgreSQL cluster with these new versions in a free trial

PostgreSQL is the world’s most advanced open source, object-relational database system, and Instaclustr is a leading provider of open source data solutions, allowing customers to avoid the risks of vendor lock-in and unsupported software. Instaclustr’s PostgreSQL managed platform is open source that’s really open source!

Happy upgrading!
