The PostGIS development team is pleased to release PostGIS 3.0.0.
This release works with PostgreSQL 9.5-12 and GEOS >= 3.6.
If you are using postgis_sfcgal extension, you need to compile against SFCGAL 1.3.1 or higher.
View all closed tickets for 3.0.0.
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 extensions SELECT PostGIS_Extensions_Upgrade(); -- if you don't use raster, you can do below -- after the upgrade step DROP EXTENSION postgis_raster;
— Fresh install
-- installs geometry and geography support CREATE EXTENSION postgis; -- install these if you need them CREATE EXTENSION postgis_raster; CREATE EXTENSION postgis_topology; -- 3d and advanced processing CREATE EXTENSION postgis_sfcgal; -- street address normalization CREATE EXTENSION address_standardizer; -- geocoder/reverse_geocoder for US census data CREATE EXTENSION postgis_tiger_geocoder CASCADE;
If you use legacy.sql or legacy_minimal.sql, make sure to rerun the version packaged with these releases.
Key Breaking Changes
--with-library-minor-version. This change is intended to smooth future pg_upgrade since lib file names won’t change between 3.0, 3.1, 3.* releases (Regina Obe)
4230, ND box operators (overlaps, contains, within, equals) now don’t look on dimensions that aren’t present in both operands. Please REINDEX your ND indexes after upgrade. (Darafei Praliaskouski)
4433, 32-bit hash fix (requires reindexing hash(geometry) indexes) (Raúl Marín)
--without-wagyuto disable this option and keep the behaviour from 2.5 (Raúl Marín)
