PostgreSQL 11 now Supported in Amazon RDS

Amazon RDS now supports PostgreSQL major version 11. PostgreSQL 11 includes major improvements to partitioning, improvements to parallelism, and many other useful performance improvements like adding columns with a non-null column default faster. This version includes SQL stored procedures that allow embedded transactions within a procedure.

With this release, pgaudit has been updated to 1.3.0, pg_hint_plan to 1.3.2, pglogical to 2.2.1, PLV8 to 2.3.8, PostGIS to 2.5.1, prefix to 1.2.8, and wal2json to hash 9e962ba.

To use the new version, you can create a new Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL database instance with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console.
