In a subscriber node, a subscription is created, which can subscribe to one or more publications. But why logical replication? Well in traditional replication, the standby server is a bit for bit copy of the leader server but what if you want to copy only some data? Logical replication gives you that flexibility of what should be sent and where to send the data.

Notable changes in this release include:

Introduction to ReactJS framework in pgAdmin 4:

ReactJS has a strong developer community and popularity. It has grown to a level where its performance is comparable to that of desktop applications. Migrating pgAdmin to use ReactJS has proven to boost pgAdminā€™s performance and user experience.

In this release we have ported the browser Tree, all the object dialogs, and the Grant Wizard.


  • Added support for OWNED BY Clause for sequences.
  • This feature adds the OWNED BY clause for the sequences. The OWNED BY option causes the sequence to be associated with a specific table column, such that if that column (or its whole table) is dropped, the sequence will be automatically dropped as well.


  • Port object nodes and properties dialogs to React.
  • Port browser tree to React.
  • Port Grant Wizard to react.
  • Remove GPDB support completely.

  • Ensure that SQL help should work for EPAS servers.
  • Fixed an issue where the grant wizard is unresponsive if the database size is huge.
