Upgrade to PostgreSQL 16

The ParadeDB Docker image now ships with PostgreSQL 16.

Reduced image size

We have removed third-party PostgreSQL extensions from the ParadeDB Docker image, reducing the image size significantly. If you would like a specific third-party PostgreSQL extension supported on ParadeDB, please contact us at


Automatic initialization

Previously, users of pg_analytics needed to run CALL paradedb.init(); on every new database connection. This is no longer necessary. pg_analytics now automatically initializes itself on the first query.
