PGSQL Phriday #012

Invitation from Ryan Booz and summary post of all submissions

🎉 Woot! Woot! 🎉

Can you believe it? We’ve made it one complete year! This is the final invitation for the first year of PGSQL Phriday!

I’ll let the invitation blog and challenge summary speak for itself. Suffice it to say, PostgreSQL 16 is just around the corner!!!

The challenge from Ryan

On Friday, September 1, 2023, publish a post on your blog about something (or a group of things) that you’re excited about using when PostgreSQL 16 is released.

Try to give some background on why this feature or improvement is important to you. Maybe reference the `pgsql-hackers` mailing list and look at the discussion that led to this feature being merged into the next release.

What have done before this feature was available that you’ll do differently now? If possible, consider giving a brief example or code sample to help illustrate how it’s used. Get your reading audience excited to try this feature or improvement once they start using PostgreSQL 16!

I know these kinds of posts have already started to show up on various blogs. After all, we’re currently in beta 3 of PostgreSQL 16. But there are so many features and improvements, I think collectively we can shine some light on the value we get from the consistent cadence of PostgreSQL releases.

In other words, I’m hoping we don’t end up with only posts about Logical Replication and the new (awesome) pg_stat_io view. 😉
