Following the open source community announcement of updates to the PostgreSQL database, we updated Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition to support PostgreSQL 14.7, 13.10, 12.14, and 11.19. These releases contain bug fixes and improvements by the PostgreSQL community. Refer to the Aurora version policy to help you decide how often and how to plan your upgrade. As a reminder, if you are running any version of Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL 11, you must upgrade to a newer major version by January 31, 2024.

This release contains optimizations that improve database availability during patching or minor version upgrades. The optimizations will be used when applying patches or newer minor version upgrades to Aurora PostgreSQL versions 11.18 or higher, 12.13 or higher, 13.9 or higher, or 14.6 or higher. This release also contains logical replication performance improvements and new features for Babelfish for Aurora PostgreSQL version 3.1.

You can initiate a minor version upgrade by modifying your DB cluster. Please review the Aurora documentation to learn more. This release is available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
