Usually, PostgreSQL versions change with major or minor GitLab releases. However, patch versions of the Linux package sometimes update the patch level of PostgreSQL. We’ve established a yearly cadence for PostgreSQL upgrades and trigger automatic database upgrades in the release before the new version is required.
- Linux package 12.7.6 shipped with PostgreSQL 9.6.14 and 10.9.
- Linux package 12.7.7 shipped with PostgreSQL 9.6.17 and 10.12.
Find out which versions of PostgreSQL (and other components) ship with each Linux package release.
The lowest supported PostgreSQL versions are listed in the installation requirements.
