The New PostgreSQL Features include:

  • Additional JSON constructor and extractor methods
  • Automatically updatable VIEWs

Further, PostgreSQL 9.4’s User-Defined Background Workers allow developers to write task managers, request handlers, parallel processors, queuing tools and other helper applications to enable PostgreSQL as a workload coordinator.

One example of this already released is Mongres, a background worker which accepts MongoDB queries, interprets them and passes them on to PostgreSQL.
