@RobAtticus RobAtticus released this Jun 27, 2018 · 395 commits to master since this release

High-level changes

  • Planning time improvement (up to 15x) when a hypertable has many chunks by only expanding (and taking locks on) chunks that will actually be used in a query, rather than on all chunks (as was the default PostgreSQL behavior).
  • Smarter use of HashAggregate by teaching the planner to better estimate the number of output rows when using time-based grouping.
  • New convenience function for getting the approximate number of rows in a hypertable (hypertable_approximate_row_count).
  • Fixed support for installing extension into non-public schemas
  • Other bug fixes and refactorings.
