    Any usability and user-friendly improvements?

    There is a new multi-model database written in Rust called SurrealDB with support WebSocket streaming of database updates. It does away with joins and instead uses relation links. It seems quite interesting.

      What kind of "usability" do you miss in Postgres?

        I'm not sure if this what you mean, but there is a notification system (EVENT / NOTIFY) in PostgreSQL, you can notify listeners in a trigger.

          Great CLI tools with autocomplete when I press the tab key. Sanely design commands, options, arguments, paramters. Neatly structured output on --help. Colored output on the terminal. Helpful diagnostics like the Rust compiler which not only tells you which line and column the error is on but actually highlights the exact code.

          All tools unified under one tool (like git and apt-get), not scattered around.

          Describe error messages that offers a solution, not "Query failed", but "The user account lacks the permission READ to the table Orders."

          A modern frontend with a modern UI, not some third-party application with a 90s UI that requires the Java runtime or requires me to install and configure a web server.

            Depending on what one is doing, it'd be quite worrying for a client application to have direct access to the DB in regards to ddos attacks, but it's an interesting idea.

              psql should already have autocomplete. Many people swear by it. Others just use other SQL clients. For admin tools, backwards compatibility needs to be maintained. Patches for help messages are always welcome I guess.

              Postgresql returns error codes and error messages when a query fails. Those make it possible to find out the cause of the error.

              Postgresql does not have an official GUI, and it's way outside their scope to provide one. Not sure what you mean with a modern UI (I know Pgadmin 4, but despise it), but you are free to use whatever database clients are compatible.

                That’s all nice but until Postgress has no multi master replication, like galera cluster for mariadb, its usage is very limited. Really I want my website or service would not fail if a computer reboots. I dont want to write in software special handling on where to look for backup server and then thinking how synchronize it back

                  Typo/Grammar

                  "feature release to this leading" should be "feature release of this leading"

                  "As for the performance work to find with PostgreSQL 15" should be "As for the performance work to be found with PostgreSQL 15"

                  "LZ4 and Zstd compression is now​" should be "LZ4 and Zstd compression are now​" (the word "is" is singular, but there are two compression types)

                    It's not SQL compatible, which is a big red flag for me. But then, looking at the available drivers, it seems like this is not targeted at regular RDBMS use-cases anyway - eg no JDBC or ODBC. Hardly seems like a good reason to hijack a Postgres release discussion.
