After a successful two-month Beta period, PostgreSQL 11 is now the default version for all new provisioned Heroku Postgres databases. All Postgres extensions, tooling, and integration with the Heroku developer experience are ready to use, giving you the power of PostgreSQL 11 with the ease and usability of Heroku for building data-centric applications.

We'd like to re-emphasize a few features - among the many released in Postgres 11 - that we are particularly excited about.


2018 was an amazing year for Heroku and our customers. We want to extend a big thank you for your feedback, beta participation, and spirit of innovation, which inspires us every day to continuously improve and advance the platform.

In the past year, we released a range of new features to make the developer experience more productive, more standards based, and more open. We achieved significant compliance milestones, provided trust controls for creating multi-cloud apps, and improved our existing lineup of data services.

With that, we’d like to take a moment and look back at some of the highlights from 2018. We hope you enjoy it, and we look forward to an even more exciting 2019!

We are happy to announce two major improvements to our SSO experience for Heroku Enterprise customers: easier SSO login for users via the Heroku CLI, and the ability for admins to add more than one certificate at the Enterprise Team level.

Logging into all your different cloud applications can be a pain. We know that many of you like to use Heroku via the command line interface and in your web browser side-by-side, and until now that has meant logging in via SSO separately to each interface. You'll now be redirected from the CLI to the Dashboard to complete your SSO login to Heroku, after which your SSO credentials will be synced.

We've also made the administrative experience for...


Last October, we announced the ability for you to deploy pre-built Docker images to Heroku via Container Registry. Today, building Docker images with heroku.yml is generally available; you can now:

  • Use git push heroku master to build your Docker images on Heroku
  • Take advantage of review apps in Docker-based projects

For most teams, using containers in production requires you to spend time setting up and maintaining complex infrastructure. By using heroku.yml to build your Docker images, you get the power and flexibility of using Docker to package your app, combined with Heroku’s high-productivity developer experience, container orchestration, an add-ons ecosystem, and managed...


Your Heroku application's journey to production begins with a buildpack that detects what kind of app you have, what tools you need to run, and how to tune your app for peak performance. In this way, buildpacks reduce your operational burden and let you to spend more time creating value for your customers. That's why we're excited to announce a new buildpack initiative with contributions from Heroku and Pivotal.
