Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for PostgreSQL now supports PostgreSQL minor version 14.4. We recommend you upgrade to this latest minor version to fix known security vulnerabilities and bugs from prior versions of PostgreSQL. Please refer to the PostgreSQL community announcement for more details about the release.

While this release from PostgreSQL community includes a number of fixes, a noteworthy fix included in this release is for CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY and REINDEX CONCURRENTLY that can potentially cause silent data corruption of indexes. Amazon RDS has made the fix for the index corruption available since the release of Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL 14.3.

You can leverage automatic minor version upgrades to automatically upgrade your databases to more recent minor versions during scheduled maintenance windows. Learn more about upgrading your database instances, including automatic minor version upgrades, in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL makes it simple to set up, operate, and scale PostgreSQL deployments in the cloud. See Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL Pricing for pricing details and regional availability. Create or update a fully managed Amazon RDS database in the Amazon RDS Management Console.
