07.21.2016 - PostgreSQL 9.6 Beta 3 Released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group announces today that the third beta release of PostgreSQL 9.6 is available for download. This release contains previews of all of the features which will be available in the final release of version 9.6, including fixes to many of the issues found in the first and second betas. Users are encouraged to continue testing their applications against 9.6 beta 3.

Changes Since Beta 2

Our users and contributors tested the first two betas, and found and reported many bugs and usability issues. This beta release fixes many of those issues. If you reported an issue, please test this beta to ensure that it's completely fixed.

This included many more fixes to parallel query:

  • adding support for TABLESAMPLE
  • correcting cost data in Gather nodes
  • check parallel-safety of all appended relations
  • fix planner issues with initPlans
  • fix several issues with client_encoding
  • clean up EXPLAIN output for parallel queries
  • multiple changes to parallel aggregation internals

Among the other issues addressed were:

  • add conninfo field to pg_stat_wal_receiver
  • clear all-frozen visibilitymap status when locking tuples
  • correctly dump database and tablespace ACLs
  • avoid invalidating all foreign-join cached plans when user mappings change
  • fix nested NOT operation cleanup in tsquery
  • allow IMPORT FOREIGN SCHEMA within pl/pgsql
  • print a given subplan only once in EXPLAIN
  • change the GetForeignUpperPaths API
  • fix several issues in postgres_fdw
  • added many additional regression tests
  • many documentation updates and clarifications
  • multiple translation updates for the docs

Due to changes in system catalogs, a pg_upgrade or dump and restore will be required for users migrating databases from earlier betas. This includes a version update to the pg_control tool, making it incompatible with PostgreSQL 9.4 and earlier. This beta also includes patches to many issues shared with earlier versions, which will be updated in an upcoming minor release.

Note that some known issues remain unfixed. Before reporting a bug in the beta, please check the Open Items page.

Beta Schedule

This is the third beta release of version 9.6. The PostgreSQL Project will release additional betas as required for testing, followed by one or more release candidates, until the final release in late 2016. For further information please see the Beta Testing page.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group announces today that the second beta release of PostgreSQL 9.6 is available for download. This release contains previews of all of the features which will be available in the final release of version 9.6, including fixes to many of the issues found in the first beta. Users are encouraged to begin testing their applications against 9.6 beta 2.

Changes Since Beta1

Our users and contributors reported bugs against 9.6 beta 1, and some of them have been fixed in this release. This includes multiple fixes for failure and performance issues in parallel query. We urge our community to re-test to ensure that these bugs are actually fixed, including:

  • update most contrib extensions for parallel query
  • two fixes for pg_trgm (trigram) bugs
  • rewrite code to estimate join sizes for better performance
  • correct handling of argument and result datatypes for partial aggregation
  • fix lazy_scan_heap so that it won't mark pages all-frozen too soon
  • mark additional functions as parallel-unsafe
  • check PlaceHolderVars before pushing down a join in postgres_fdw
  • improve the situation for parallel query versus temp relations
  • don't generate parallel paths for rels with parallel-restricted outputs
  • make psql_crosstab plans more stable
  • finish loose ends for SQL ACCESS METHOD objects, including pg_dump
  • stop the executor if no more tuples can be sent from worker to leader
  • several pg_upgrade fixes to support new features
  • fix regression tests for phrase search
  • add new snapshot fields to serialize/deserialize functions
  • measure Bloom index signature-length reloption in bits, not words
  • many improvements to parallel regression tests
  • many documentation updates and clarifications
  • multiple translation updates for the docs

Additionally, we've made some user-visible changes to parameters and functions. These may cause dump/restore between beta 1 and beta 2 to generate errors. This includes:

  • rename max_parallel_degree to max_parallel_workers_per_gather
  • add integrity-checking functions to pg_visibility
  • add VACUUM (DISABLE_PAGE_SKIPPING) for emergencies
  • add pg_truncate_visibility_map function
  • add min_parallel_relation_size GUC
  • change default of backend_flush_after GUC to 0 (disabled)

Note that some known issues remain unfixed. Before reporting a bug in the beta, please check the Open Items page.

Beta Schedule

06.17.2016 - Announcement: Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL now supports cross-region read replicas



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

You can now quickly create cross-region read replicas for your unencrypted Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL database instances with just a few clicks on the AWS Management Console. You can use this feature to reduce read latency for your customers in different geographic locations, to create a backup of your primary database for disaster recovery purposes, or quickly migrate your database to a different AWS Region.

Disaster Recovery: You can create cross-region read replicas of your primary database instance to have a disaster recovery solution. If your primary region faces a disruption, you can promote the replica to a master and keep your business operational.

Scaling: You can use cross-region read replicas to support read queries from your workloads across various geographic locations. This will reduce latency by serving your customers from a database that is close to them.

Cross-region Migration: If you would like to migrate your database instance quickly to another AWS region, you may do so by using cross-region replication. Simply create a replica in your target region, and once it is ready, promote it to master and point your application to it.

This feature is available for all RDS PostgreSQL databases that are version 9.5.2 or 9.4.7 and higher. To create a cross-region replica of a database instance operating on an older version, you can upgrade to a supported version by performing a database version upgrade. To learn more about cross-region replication for RDS PostgreSQL, please refer to the RDS documentation.
