The PostGIS development team is pleased to release PostGIS 2.5.0beta1.
This release is a work in progress. No more api changes will be made from this point on before 2.5.0 release. Remaining time will be focused on bug fixes and documentation for the new functionality and performance enhancements under the covers. Although this release will work for PostgreSQL 9.4 and above, to take full advantage of what PostGIS 2.5 will offer, you should be running PostgreSQL 11beta2+ and GEOS 3.7.0beta1 which were released recently.
Best served with PostgreSQL 11beta2 which was recently released.

ALTER EXTENSION postgis_sfcgal UPDATE; ALTER EXTENSION postgis_topology UPDATE; ALTER EXTENSION postgis_tiger_geocoder UPDATE;
