PostgreSQL 11 released

Version 11 of the PostgreSQL database management system is now available. The PostgreSQL developers focused on scaling up for large volumes of data in this release. This concerns, for example, the partitioning of databases, which is now faster and more robust, according to the release notes.

For the first time in PostgreSQL history transactions can now be used in stored procedures. A number of SQL operations can now run in parallel. The beta feature is a just-in-time (JIT) compiler for expressions designed to speed queries. The JIT uses the LLVM compiler framework and needs to be enabled.
