The 2.1.0rc1 release of PostGIS is now available.
The PostGIS development team is proud to release a release candidate version of upcoming PostGIS 2.1.0. As befits a minor release, the focus is on speed improvements, more features, and bug fixes. We expect this to be the final release candidate before we officially release 2.1.0. We’d appreciate it if you test it before final release and report back with any issues you run into so we can have a smooth release.
If you are currently using PostGIS 2.0 (or 2.1.0 beta3) using extension support, you can go the soft upgrade path:
ALTER EXTENSION postgis UPDATE TO “2.1.0rc1”;
If you are running 2.1.0 of beta or an unreleased version (and the above step fails with error “extension postgis has no update path from version x.x.x to version 2.1.0rc1”) , you need to first copy the file in share\extensions\postgis—2.0.3—2.1.0rc1.sql and change the 2.0.3 to the x.x.x noted in the error you are running. Then follow the above upgrade step again.
Users of 1.5 and below will need to go the hard-upgrade path.
Best served with a bottle of GEOS 3.4.0dev and PostgreSQL 9.3beta2.
This release contains bug fixes completed since 2.1.0beta3 release:

The last couple weeks have seen two interesting updates in the world of PostgreSQL “foreign data wrappers” (FDW). Foreign data wrappers allow you to access remote data inside your database, exactly like other tables. PostgreSQL ships with two example implementations, one for accessing text files, and the other for accessing remote PostgreSQL servers.
The two updates of interest to PostGIS users are:
Now you can access your PostGIS data without even going to the trouble of importing it first!
