Postgres 9.6 over with Bruce Momjian
Postgres 9.6 adds many features that take the database to a new level of scalability, with parallelism and multi-CPU-socket scaling improvements.
Easier maintenance is achieved by reduced cleanup overhead and adding snapshot and idle-transaction controls. Enhanced monitoring simplifies the job of administrators. Foreign data wrapper and full text improvements are also included in this release.
The talk will also cover some of the major focuses of the next major release, Postgres 10.
