Amazon Aurora now supports PostgreSQL 14



Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition now supports PostgreSQL major version 14 (14.3). [PostgreSQL 14]( includes performance improvements for parallel queries, heavily-concurrent workloads, partitioned tables, logical replication, and vacuuming. PostgreSQL 14 also improves functionality with new capabilities. For example, you can cancel long-running queries if a client disconnects and you can close idle sessions if they time out. Range types now support multiranges, allowing representation of non-contiguous data ranges, and stored procedures can now return data via OUT parameters. This release includes new features for [Babelfish for Aurora PostgreSQL](/rds/aurora/babelfish/) version 2.1\. Please refer to [Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL updates]( for more information. To use the new version, create a new Aurora PostgreSQL-compatible database instance with just a few clicks in the [Amazon RDS Management Console]( You can also upgrade existing database instances. Please review [the Aurora documentation]( to learn more about upgrading. PostgreSQL 14 is available in [all regions](/about-aws/global-infrastructure/regional-product-services/) supported by Aurora PostgreSQL. Refer to the [Aurora version policy]( to help you to decide how often to upgrade and how to plan your upgrade process. [Amazon Aurora](/rds/aurora/) is designed for unparalleled high performance and availability at global scale with full MySQL and PostgreSQL compatibility.
