PostgreSQL 9.6 Now In Beta With Parallel Queries
Written by Michael Larabel in Free Software on 12 May 2016 at 09:13 AM EDT. 5 Comments
PostgreSQL 9.6 is now up to its beta stage with a number of new features.

Recently I provided an early look at PostgreSQL 9.6 features. PostgreSQL 9.6 brings parallel query support, synchronous replication now supports multiple standby servers, full-text search for phrases, support for remote joins/sorts/updates, "substantial" performance improvements (especially for many-core servers), no more repetitive scans of old data by auto vacuum, and much more.

Parallel query support is one of the big ticket items, but overall there is a lot of good stuff out of this open-source SQL database server update. PostgreSQL fans wishing to learn more about v9.6 Beta 1 can see the release announcement at
