Release notes Postgres 17 Release Notes

Thursday, May 9, 2024

I have just completed the first draft of the Postgres 17 release notes. It includes developer community feedback but still needs more xml markup and links.

The release note feature count is 188. The most pleasant surprise for me was the large number of optimizer improvements. Postgres 17 Beta 1 should be released soon. The final Postgres 17 release is planned for September/October of this year.
