The PostGIS development team is pleased to release PostGIS 2.5.0rc1.
This release is a work in progress. Remaining time will be focused on bug fixes and documentation until PostGIS 2.5.0 release. Although this release will work for PostgreSQL 9.4 and above, to take full advantage of what PostGIS 2.5 offers, you should be running PostgreSQL 11beta3+ and GEOS 3.7.0rc1 which were released recently.
Best served with PostgreSQL 11beta3 which was recently released.
Changes since PostGIS 2.5.0beta2 release are as follows:
- 4146, Fix compilation error against Postgres 12 (Raúl Marín).
- 4147, 4148, Honor SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH when present (Christoph Berg).
