Postgres recommends that all users run the latest available minor release for whatever major version is in use.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group supports a major version for 5 years after its initial release. After its five-year anniversary, a major version will have one last minor release containing any fixes and will be considered end-of-life (EOL) and no longer supported.

The Release roadmap lists upcoming minor and major releases. If the release team determines that a critical bug or security fix is too important to wait until the regularly scheduled minor release, it may make a release available outside the minor release roadmap.

More information is available on the PostgreSQL website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:
psql -c "SELECT version();"

You can submit an improvement to this page on GitHub :octocat: . This page has a corresponding Talk Page.

A JSON version of this page is available at /api/postgresql.json. See the API Documentation for more information. You can subscribe to the iCalendar feed at /calendar/postgresql.ics.
