The 2.1.0 release of PostGIS is now available.
The PostGIS development team is proud to release PostGIS 2.1.0. As befits a minor release, the focus is on speed improvements, more features, and bug fixes.

Then follow the above upgrade step again.
Users of 1.5 and below will need to go the hard-upgrade path documented in manual:
