The PostGIS development team is pleased to release PostGIS 3.0.0rc1.
This release works with PostgreSQL 9.5-12 and GEOS >= 3.6
View all closed tickets for 3.0.0.
Main changes since PostGIS 3.0.0beta1 release are as follows:
ST_Unionaggregate signature so drop agg not required and re-work performance/size enhancement to continue to avoid using Array type during
ST_Union, hopefully avoiding Array size limitations. (Paul Ramsey)
Note that a major change in 3.0 is that the raster functionality has been broken out as a separate extension. If you are upgrading from a previous edition, do the following:
After installing the binaries or after running pg_upgrade, make sure to do:
ALTER EXTENSION postgis UPDATE; -* this NEXT step repackages raster IN its own extension -* AND upgrades ALL your other related postgis extension SELECT PostGIS_Extensions_Upgrade(); --if you don't use raster, you can do DROP EXTENSION postgis_raster;
-* New users
CREATE EXTENSION postgis; CREATE EXTENSION postgis_raster; CREATE EXTENSION postgis_topology; CREATE EXTENSION postgis_tiger_geocoder;
If you use legacy.sql or legacy_minimal.sql, make sure to rerun the version packaged with these releases.

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.
