Support for PostgreSQL 12
PostgreSQL 12 has been GA for over 4 months now. Any indication on when it will be supported?
Version 12 contains new features like case-insensitive grouping, better connection security and various improvements that will improve scalability and performance of Large partitioned tables.
Still no postgres 12. The timescaledb version is still ancient 1.3.2. That is behind by 5 versions!
Digital Ocean is much better, offers Postgres 12 and Timescaledb 1.7.1
Flexible Preview doesn't even offer timescaledb.

Ryan Stille commented
Please include updated TimescaleDB support

Perhaps you can skip right to PostgreSQL 13 instead...

Lacking timescale om Flexible Server, which is a show stopper
Sunil Agarwal commented
With Flexible Server https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/postgresql/flexible-server/, we have the support for PG 12 in public preview. Flexible server builds on a architecture allowing us on-board newer version quickly. Please stay tuned

Back on July 20, 2020, Azure Database for PostgreSQL's Twitter account replied to a user with "we are actively working on Postgres 12 support & we expect it to be available at latest by the end of this calendar year". Source: https://twitter.com/AzureDBPostgres/status/1285360876841611264
Please also consider upgrading `timescaledb` to the latest (1.7) and enabling timescale-prometheus (requires 12).
Would also like an ETA on this, any news ?

Checking on the status of this feature and if there is an ETA for it on the roadmap.
From a month ago -- "PostgreSQL 13 Beta 1 Now Available in Amazon RDS Database Preview Environment"...
I think the documentation in this is clear that it is "the current major version on Azure (n) and the two prior major versions (-2)". Microsoft will support not the current major version, but the current major version "on Azure". Which at the moment is horrendously out of date.
Unfortunately I have had to decide today to move off Azure Postgres as it's just too out of date, and there's no indication of an update coming. Not just the major version, but significant major versions of extensions such as PostGIS.
If Azure is going to seriously promote this platform they need to think about timescales for getting major versions ready. As it is, people should not choose Azure for PostgreSQL.

Also worth noting is that Microsoft's commitment on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/postgresql/concepts-supported-versions: "Microsoft aims to support n-2 versions of the PostgreSQL engine in Azure Database for PostgreSQL - Single Server. The versions would be the current major version on Azure (n) and the two prior major versions (-2)."
PostgreSQL 12 came out October 2019, and it has been available on AWS & GCP for several months. Either adjust your documentation or increase the priority of deploying this.

It looks like the idea is planned. Does that include PostGIS 3?
Any idea on when we can expect this?
We are specifically looking forward to PG12 with PostGIS 3 extension. It would be great to know what the estimated roadmap is so we can decide if we can wait for the upgrade, or need to manage our own server.

It would be nice if PGSQL 12 (including on-by-default JIT extensions) were available as an option.
