Releases: PostgresApp/PostgresApp

Permission Dialog Improvements

@jakob has created a really nice UI for managing Client App Permissions in the preferences, which also allows you to change decisions later. New connection attempts are now added even if the helper application was unable to show the permission dialog, so this should provide a workaround to (#749).

Also, the 2.7.x releases had a bug where disabling "Ask for permission when apps connect without password" was not respected if the server was started automatically on login or from the menu (#752). This release fixes that.

The PostgreSQL builds are identical to 2.7.1:

  • PostgreSQL 12.18 with PostGIS 3.0.10
  • PostgreSQL 13.14 with PostGIS 3.1.10
  • PostgreSQL 14.11 with PostGIS 3.2.6
  • PostgreSQL 15.6 with PostGIS 3.3.5
  • PostgreSQL 16.2 with PostGIS 3.4.1

Postgres.app shows a permission prompt when an app attempts to connect for the first time. For more information, see https://postgresapp.com/documentation/app-permissions.html

This release contains the latest bugfixes for all supported versions of PostgreSQL.

  • PostgreSQL 12.18 with PostGIS 3.0.10
  • PostgreSQL 13.14 with PostGIS 3.1.10

  • PostgreSQL 16.2 with PostGIS 3.4.1

This release removes PostgreSQL 11. If you are still using PostgreSQL 11, please create a dump before upgrading the app.

You can find an overview of the fixes in PostgreSQL in the Release Announcement and all details in the Release Notes. In particular, there is a note about GIN-Indexes that may require a post-upgrade step.

PostgreSQL 15 and 16 include a new version of the pgvector extension. Run ALTER EXTENSION vector UPDATE; to update if you use this.

Postgres.app now shows a permission prompt when an app attempts to connect for the first time. For more information, see https://postgresapp.com/documentation/app-permissions.html
