Instaclustr is pleased to announce the availability of the new PostgreSQL® minor releases 15.2, 14.7, and 13.10 on the Instaclustr Managed Platform.
PostgreSQL is the world’s most advanced open source, object-relational database system. Instaclustr is a leading provider of open source data solutions, helping customers avoid the risks of vendor lock-in and unsupported software. Instaclustr’s PostgreSQL managed platform is open source that’s really open source!
Customers can treat the minor releases as a “drop-in” replacement—functionally compatible with the previous minor versions. In particular, the following fixes are important for our customers and PostgreSQL users in general:
- Fix for partitioned tables to correctly update GENERATED columns in child tables if the GENERATED column does not exist in the parent table or the child generated column has different dependencies than the parent.
- Several fixes for the MERGE command.
- Allow a WITH RECURSIVE … CYCLE query to access its SET output column.
As with all PostgreSQL releases, there is more information available in the official release notes, as well as in the release notes for each version of the documentation.
For customers who want to experience a PostgreSQL cluster on the Instaclustr Managed Platform, you can sign up and create a PostgreSQL cluster with these new versions through a free trial.
For customers who are running PostgreSQL on the managed platform, our Technical Operations team will reach out shortly to schedule a time to upgrade your clusters to the latest minor version. If you would like to upgrade to a new major version, or have any questions, please reach out to our Support team.
