Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for PostgreSQL now supports PostgreSQL minor versions 14.6, 13.9, 12.13, 11.18, and 10.23. We recommend you upgrade to the latest minor version to fix known security vulnerabilities in prior versions of PostgreSQL, and to benefit from the bug fixes, performance improvements, and new functionality added by the PostgreSQL community. Please refer to the PostgreSQL community announcement for more details about the release. 

With this release, RDS for PostgreSQL adds two new extensions: (1) tcn - an extension that provides a trigger function that sends an asynchronous notification for every write on a table, and (2) seg - an extension that provides the "seg" data type used for storing and querying line segments. This release also includes updates for existing supported PostgreSQL extensions: orafce is updated to 3.24, rdkit is updated to 4.2.0, and wal2json is updated to 2.5. Please see the list of supported extensions in the Amazon RDS User Guide for specific versions.

You are able to leverage automatic minor version upgrades to automatically upgrade your databases to more recent minor versions during scheduled maintenance windows. Learn more about upgrading your database instances, including automatic minor version upgrades, in the Amazon RDS User Guide
