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.
We are shooting for a final release in the next week or two.
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 (using extension support) 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 to share\extensions\postgis--x.x.x--2.1.0rc1.sql and change the x.x.x to the version noted in the error above.
Then follow the above upgrade step again.
Users of 1.5 and below will need to go the hard-upgrade path.
We have binaries for Windows users (PostgreSQL 9.2/9.3) which you can download from Winnie Windows PostGIS build bot: detailed in the Unreleased PostGIS Versions section:
http://postgis.net/windows_downloads. You'll aslo find pgRouting 2.0 dev branch binaries for PostgreSQL 9.2/9.3 that you can use with PostGIS 2.0/2.1/2.2. Details on how to get up and running with pgRouting can be found on Anita Graser's latest excellent pgRouting tutorial.
