The PostgreSQL 9.5 release change-log was recently updated in Git to reflect all of the latest changes for this next version of this database server due out in 2016.

The changes in Git yesterday now provide an up-to-date look at the PostgreSQL 9.5 additions. Some of the PostgreSQL 9.5 features worth mentioning include row-level security control, addition of Block Range Indexes (BRIN), "substantial" performance improvements for sorting, "substantial" performance improvements for multi-CPU machines, and much more.

You can find out more about the in-progress PostgreSQL 9.5 via the release information in Git. There are also more friendly details via this Wiki page.

PostgreSQL 9.5 is currently up to its second beta and while originally the road-map put the release in Q4'2015, it's looking like this database server update will land sometime in early 2016 unless there is a major last minute push to get it out before the New Year.
