One of the great benefits of building a project like PostGIS ontop of PostgreSQL is that when PostgreSQL stands higher, PostGIS becomes that much more powerful without lifting a finger.

items we don't yet see listed that the PostGIS development team has been long waiting for. We'll go over both in this article.
