Crunchy Developer Program Software

The Crunchy Data Developer Program is intended to provide developers with reliable software packages of the latest free and open source PostgreSQL release and associated PostgreSQL software tools and extensions for development purposes. The software provided pursuant to the Crunchy Data Developer Program is intended for development purposes only and subject to the Developer Program Terms of Use.

Under the Program, Crunchy Data provides access to Crunchy Developer Software free of charge for development purposes subject to the Developer Terms of Use. Crunchy Data intends to make available Crunchy Developer Software associated with the latest major PostgreSQL release for approximately 15 months following its original release.

The availability of releases pursuant to the Program is dependent on the date a major PostgreSQL release under development goes final. As a result, Release X is supported until one month after the release of Release X+1. This translates into Crunchy Developer Software associated with PostgreSQL 13 being made available for approximately 3 months after the release of PostgreSQL 14. Upon the release of PostgreSQL 14, Crunchy Developer Software will be made available for approximately 3 months after the release of PostgreSQL 14. Subject to the Developer Program Terms of Use, during the period of availability, Crunchy Data will provide access to updates to the available Crunchy Developer Software.
