PostgreSQL 16 Released!

September 14, 2023 - The PostgreSQL Global Development Group today announced the release of PostgreSQL 16, the latest version of the world's most advanced open source database.

PostgreSQL 16 raises its performance, with notable improvements to query parallelism, bulk data loading, and logical replication. There are many features in this release for developers and administrators alike, including more SQL/JSON syntax, new monitoring stats for your workloads, and greater flexibility in defining access control rules for management of policies across large fleets.

"As relational database patterns evolve, PostgreSQL continues to make performance gains in searching and managing data at scale," said Dave Page, a PostgreSQL Core Team member. "PostgreSQL 16 gives users more methods to scale-up and scale-out their workloads, while giving them new ways to gain insights and optimize how they manage their data."

PostgreSQL, an innovative data management system known for its reliability and robustness, benefits from over 25 years of open source development from a global developer community and has become the preferred open source relational database for organizations of all sizes.
