If you are upgrading from an existing PostGIS install, make sure after installing PostGIS binaries to do.
ALTER EXTENSION postgis UPDATE;
— if you have additional postgishy extensions below upgrade them too
ALTER EXTENSION postgis_sfcgal UPDATE; ALTER EXTENSION postgis_topology UPDATE; ALTER EXTENSION postgis_tiger_geocoder UPDATE; ALTER EXTENSION pgrouting UPDATE;
In order to have Map Box Vector Tiles support enabled, you’ll need to compile with protobuf support
and pkg-config to verify the correct minimum version of protobuf-c see protobuf
function will not be enabled if PostGIS is compiled with lower than GEOS 3.7.0.
GEOS 3.7.0 is not released yet but is expected sometime next month.
Please report bugs that you find in this release.
Most aggregates now marked as parallel safe, which means most aggs have to be dropped / recreated. If you have views that utilize PostGIS aggs, you’ll need to drop before upgrade and recreate after upgrade
B-Tree index operators < = > changed to provide better spatial locality on sorting and have expected behavior on GROUP BY. It now works on exact geometry instead of bounding box. If you have btree index for geometry or geography, you need to REINDEX it, or review if it was created by accident and needs to be replaced with GiST index. If your code relies on old left-to-right box compare ordering, update it to use << >> operators.
_ST_DumpPoints removed, was no longer needed after PostGIS 2.1.0
when ST_DumpPoints got reimplemented in C
