Earlier this month it looks like Webfaction quietly upgraded the default PostgreSQL installation to 9.4.17 which I think coincided with a server reboot?

Looking at the version support plans (https://www.postgresql.org/support/versioning/) has me wondering when Webfaction will begin offering a newer version for the default installation?

Version 9.4 will be supported until Dec 2019 (still 21 months in the future!). Currently, no version choice is offered when creating a new database. It would be great if a later version (perhaps 10.3?) were added in parallel so we can test and migrate to a new version in good time before support for 9.4 ends.

We typically keep the version released with the main OS repos. We will make our own version upgrades when there is a security concern. If you require a more recent version you would want to build it form source within your home directory and run it as a custom application.

Thanks for the answer. I don't have a strong need to roll forward, so I'm happy with following the OS repo in due course.
