Comment 1 Opportunist 2019-03-26 16:52:08 UTC
For Postgres databases using language and region-sensitive collations, which tend to be the default nowadays, it means that certain strings might sort differently after this upgrade. A critical consequence is that indexes that depend on such collations must be rebuilt immediately after the upgrade. Servers in WAL-based/streaming replication setups should also be upgraded together since a standby must run the same libc/locales as its primary.
