PostGIS 2.0.0, RPMs and so.
2.0.0 this week. Kudos to entire team for the great work. It is definitely a milestone both for PostGIS and PostgreSQL.
So, as the packager, I released 2.0.0 RPMs just a day after the release. However, I needed to change package name, to let people be able to pick up 1.5.X or 2.0.X version to use.
The new package name is
-- but the actual name also contains PostgreSQL major version number:
It is available for PostgreSQL 9.1+ for now. I don't have plans to support 9.0 now, unless there is strong demand for that.

Thanks for your work. Happy to be able to install PostGIS as an extension.
You are welcome. Yeah, extensions stuff is great.
Thanks for this! I heard about the release last week, but just got around to looking for the RPMs!
You are welcome
The rpms are only in the Centos6 repository. Is it possible to have them for Centos5 please ???
What about CentOS 5? Will you be making it available?
No. CentOS 5 does not provide enough package versions to build PostGIS 2.0.
Thanks for your efforts to create postgis2 rpm's.
Is it possible to create a version with json-c enabled too?
How is it done?
See http://postgis.org/docs/postgis_installation.html#installation_configuration, with --with-jsondir=DIR configure option.
The reason I'm asking is I need the ST_GeomFromGeoJSON postgis function (http://postgis.org/docs/ST_GeomFromGeoJSON.html).
Has there been any updates for this.
It would be great to have json-c enabled.
