PostgreSQL 9.6 isn't being released until later this year, but with it moving along, the release notes are starting to be assembled for this next major update to this open-source SQL server implementation.

This week added to PostgreSQL Git was the start of the 9.6 release notes. Among the prominent items to mention are the 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.

PostgreSQL database developers/administrators interested in learning more about the new functionality that's baking for PostgreSQL 9.6 can visit the 9.6 release notes in Git.
