Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for PostgreSQL or PostgreSQL now supports the latest minor versions PostgreSQL 16.3, 15.7, 14.12, 13.15, and 12.19. This release of RDS for PostgreSQL also includes support for pgvector 0.7.0, which lets you index vectors larger than 2,000 dimensions and adds support for scalar and binary quantization through expression indexes.

We recommend that you upgrade to the latest minor versions to fix known security vulnerabilities in prior versions of PostgreSQL, and to benefit from the bug fixes added by the PostgreSQL community. You are able to leverage automatic minor version upgrades to automatically upgrade your databases to more recent minor versions during scheduled maintenance window.
