Following the announcement of updates to the PostgreSQL database, we have updated Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL to support PostgreSQL minor versions 10.4, 9.6.9, 9.5.13, 9.4.18, and 9.3.23. This release fixes PostgreSQL security vulnerabilities included in current and previous minor releases by the PostgreSQL community and contains additional bug fixes and improvements.

With this update, we have added support for PostgreSQL 10 native logical replication which uses the publish and subscribe model, allowing fine-grained replication between RDS for PostgreSQL instances or between a PostgreSQL database that is deployed outside of RDS (including self-managed on EC2, on-premises, etc.) and an RDS for PostgreSQL instance, and vice versa. Additionally, the pg_repack extension has been updated to 1.4.3 in PostgreSQL 10.4, 9.6.9; and the PL/v8 extension has been updated to version 2.1.2 in PostgreSQL 10.4, 9.6.9, 9.5.13, 9.4.17, and 9.3.23.

Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale PostgreSQL deployments in the cloud. Learn more about upgrading your database instances from the Amazon RDS User Guide. See Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL Pricing for regional availability.
