The PostgreSQL Global Development Group announces that the first release
candidate of PostgreSQL 14 is now available for download. As a release
candidate, PostgreSQL 14 RC 1 will be mostly identical to the initial release of
PostgreSQL 14, though some more fixes may be applied prior to the general
availability of PostgreSQL 14.

The planned date for the general availability of PostgreSQL 14 is September 30,
2021. Please see the "Release Schedule" section for more details.

Upgrading to PostgreSQL 14 RC 1

To upgrade to PostgreSQL 14 RC 1 from earlier versions of PostgreSQL, you will
need to use a major version upgrade strategy, e.g. `pg_upgrade` or
`pg_dump` / `pg_restore`. For more information, please visit the documentation
section on [upgrading](

not be available in PostgreSQL 14.
* Fix `EXPLAIN VERBOSE` failing on a query with `SEARCH BREADTH FIRST`.
* `CREATE STATISTICS` now rejects single variable expressions.
