Following the recent announcement of updates to the PostgreSQL database, we have updated Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility to support PostgreSQL version 11.4. PostgreSQL 11 includes major improvements to partitioning, improvements to parallelism, and many other useful performance improvements like adding columns with a non-null column default faster. This version includes SQL stored procedures that allow embedded transactions within a procedure.

With this release, pgaudit has been updated to 1.3.0, pg_hint_plan to 1.3.4, pglogical to 2.2.1, PLV8 to 2.3.8, PostGIS to 2.5.1, prefix to 1.2.8, and wal2json to hash 9e962ba. 

This release is available in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and EU (Ireland) regions. For additional release details, see the Release Notes.

Amazon Aurora combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. It provides up to three times better performance than the typical PostgreSQL database, together with increased scalability, durability, and security.
