I am going to explain a sorting method added in Postgres 14 that allows to create GiST index much faster. We'll also talk about the disadvantages of this sorting method discovered during implementation of its support in PostGIS and how it will be improved in the future. Also, new features and improvements included in PostGIS 3.2 will be reviewed.
