PostgreSQL 15 Released!
**October 13, 2022** - The PostgreSQL Global Development Group today announced the release of [PostgreSQL 15](https://www.postgresql.org/docs/15/release-15.html), the latest version of the world's
[most advanced open source database](https://www.postgresql.org/).
PostgreSQL 15 builds on the performance improvements of recent releases with noticeable gains for managing workloads in both local and distributed deployments, including improved sorting. This release improves the developer experience with the addition of the popular ['MERGE'](https://www.postgresql.org/docs/15/sql-merge.html) command, and adds more capabilities for observing the state of the database.
"The PostgreSQL developer community continues to build features that simplify running high performance data workloads while improving the developer experience," said Jonathan Katz, a PostgreSQL Core Team member. "PostgreSQL 15 highlights how, through open software development, we can deliver to our users a database that is great for application development and safe for their critical data."
