PostGIS 3.2.0rc1 Released
The PostGIS Team is pleased to release the first rc of the upcoming PostGIS 3.2.0 release.
Best served with PostgreSQL 14. This version of PostGIS can utilize the faster GiST building support API introduced in PostgreSQL 14. If compiled with recently released GEOS 3.10.1 you can take advantage of improvements in ST_MakeValid and numerous speed improvements. This release also includes many additional functions and improvements for
postgis_topology extensions and a new input/export format FlatGeobuf.
This release supports PostgreSQL 9.6-14, GEOS 3.6 and higher, and proj 4.9 and higher.
Details of this release can be found in NEWS file: https://git.osgeo.org/gitea/postgis/postgis/src/tag/3.2.0rc1/NEWS and is also included in the source tar ball.
Due to some query performance degradation with the new fast index build that requires PG14, we have decided to disable the feature by default until we get more user testing as to the true impact of real-world queries.
If you are running PG14+, you can reenable it by doing
1ALTER OPERATOR FAMILY gist_geometry_ops_2d 2 USING gist 3 ADD FUNCTION 11 (geometry) 4 geometry_gist_sortsupport_2d (internal);
To revert the change:
1ALTER OPERATOR FAMILY gist_geometry_ops_2d 2 USING gist 3 DROP FUNCTION 11 (geometry);
and then reindex your gist indexes.
