Pre-built binary packages are available for a number of different operating systems:
The source code can be found in the main file browser or you can access the source control repository directly at git.postgresql.org. Instructions for building from source can be found in the documentation.
There are source code and binary packages of beta and release candidates, and of the current development code available for testing and evaluation of new features. Note that these builds should be used for testing purposes only, and not for production systems.
