18th October 2018: PostgreSQL 11 Released!

PostgreSQL 11 RC1 Released!

Posted on 2018-10-11 by PostgreSQL Global Development Group

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group announces that the first release candidate of PostgreSQL 11 is now available for download. As a release candidate, PostgreSQL 11 RC 1 should be identical to the initial release of PostgreSQL 11, though some more fixes may be applied prior to the general availability of PostgreSQL 11.

Upgrading to PostgreSQL 11 RC 1

To upgrade to PostgreSQL 11 RC 1 from Beta 4 or an earlier version of PostgreSQL 11, you will need to use a strategy similar to upgrading between major versions of PostgreSQL (e.g. pg_upgrade or pg_dump / pg_restore). For more information, please visit the documentation section on upgrading.

Changes Since 11 Beta 4

There have been many bug fixes for PostgreSQL 11 reported during the Beta 4 period and applied to this release candidate. These fixes include:

  • Fix a crash that occurred with event triggers on partitioned tables
  • Ensure the transaction_timestamp function returns an updated timestamp in a stored procedure if it is called after a transaction is committed
  • Disallow multiple primary keys to be created on partitions
  • Fix for ALTER TABLE .. ATTACH PARTITION

For a detailed list of fixes, please visit the open items page.

Release Schedule

This is the first release candidate for PostgreSQL 11. Unless an issue is discovered that warrants a delay or to produce an additional release candidate, PostgreSQL 11 should be made generally available on October 18, 2018.

For further information please see the Beta Testing page.
