Postgres Pro is a PostgreSQL-based DBMS developed by Postgres Professional.
Postgres Pro Standard provides early access to the new PostgreSQL features and performance gain before new official PostgreSQL release with technical support of Postgres Professional.
Postgres Pro Standard releases are composed as an actual PostgreSQL version with several patches and extensions, some of them already accepted into future PostgreSQL releases. Postgres Pro includes some patches and extensions by Postgres Professional. Usually most of them are already at commitfest.
Postgres Pro Versions
Postgres Pro version number is made by adding one subrelease number to the common PostgreSQL version number. With every PostgreSQL minor release the additional number is reset. For example, PostgreSQL 9.6.1 was followed by Postgres Pro Standard 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199. After PostgreSQL 9.6.2 release, Postgres Pro version numbers started with 188.8.131.52.
