State Update

We would like to inform you about the current state of SLE 15 SP2.

We are not satisfied with the current quality of our builds in regard of the approaching Release Candidate phase. Many of the known issues are being tackle but our recent changes to some of our packages – details further down below – need extra care. Due to those changes we require a specific test cycle to ensure the quality of future RC milestone.

We will inform you about further milestones releases later on.

Notable Changes

PostgreSQL 12

PostgreSQL 12 has been added to SLE 15 SP2! Please note that PostgreSQL 10 is still available. We highly recommend to read the available upstream documentation for changes and upgrades:

We have the following two changes to the layout of subpackages that come out with PostgreSQL 12:

  • The former postgresql10-devel package will be split into postgresql12-devel (containing everything that’s needed to build database clients that link against libpq and libecpg) and postgresql12-server-devel (containing everything that’s needed to build server extensions).
  • There is a new optional subpackage called postgresql12-llvmjit.

All new packages of course also have a noarch companion without a version number in the name, i.e. postgresql-server-devel and postgresql-llvmjit.
