Rocky Linux 8 RC is out. This is a great step for the final release. Rocky Linux is a "community enterprise operating system designed to be 100% bug-for-bug compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux". Thus, PostgreSQL packages built for RHEL will also work on Rocky Linux 8 (and already verified this!)

PostgreSQL RPM repository has been out for quite a long time, and we've been building packages since PostgreSQL 7.3. If you are using an unsupported PostgreSQL version or Red Hat / CentOS / Scientific Linux / Oracle Linux release for some reason and need RPMs of those releases, we have archives of them.

In the latest 3 minor releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, Red Hat have broken LLVM compatibility with the previous minor releases (like introducing LLVM 8 with RHEL 8.1, LLVM 9 with RHEL 8.2, and LLVM 10 with RHEL 8.3).

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported versions
today -- so RPMs also got updated.
As of today's updates, if you are using RHEL/CentOS/OL 7
, -devel subpackages in 11 and above
require an extra repo to be enabled on your system for llvm and clang. Other distros and PostgreSQL versions are not affected. Please note that only -devel subpackage require this repo.

RHEL 8 was released 2 months ago, and we already released RPMs for many of the packages. RHEL 8 support is limited, though -- we will release more packages when EPEL 8 is out.
Because of the modularity feature in RHEL 8
, installing PGDG RPMs
on RHEL 8 requires extra step.

I started using PostgreSQL around September 1998. The first problem I had was pronouncing it, and even using right capital letters at the right place.
Was is PostGreSQL? PostgresSQL? PoStGreSQL? PostgreySQL?
Recently Craig also mentioned about the same problem
Starting today, the PostgreSQL Global Development Group (abbreviated as PGDG) announced that the project will be written as PostgresQL. This will solve the problems (hopefully), and will also help use to drop the "QL" in 2024. Starting v12, all packages will also "provide" postgresXY as the package name, for a smooth change in 2024. Meanwhile, as of today, the project will accept "Postgre" as an alias for those who did not want to learn about the name of the software they are using. I heard rumours that they also say "Orac" or "SQ Serv" or "MyS", so they will now be free to drop SQL in our name, too.
Thanks to everyone who made this change. This was a real blocker for the community, and it will also help newbies in the PostgreSQL Facebook group
-- they will now be free to use "Postgre" from now on.
