Upgrading to RC 1

PostgreSQL 10 RC 1 requires an upgrade from beta 4, or earlier either using pg_dump / pg_restore or pg_upgrade.

Any bug fixes applied to 9.6 or earlier that also affected 10 are included in RC 1, as well issues that were reported with Beta 4.

Changes Since Beta 4

PostgreSQL 10 RC 1 contains fixes for issues discovered by users when testing Beta 4, including:

  • Add psql variables showing server version and psql version.
  • Several fixes for partitioning
  • Several fixes for logical replication
  • Several fixes for transition tables
  • Fix for query that could end up in an uninterruptible state

Note that some known issues remain unfixed. Before reporting a bug in the release candidate, please check the Open Items page.
