The next version of Puppet Enterprise will be running 9.4, and Amazon RDS has also extended support for 9.4. This means PuppetDB should drop support for 9.3.

The major benefit of this change for PDB is that it frees our 3.x development work to use jsonb, which isn't supported in 9.3. Without this change, those features would not be usable until PDB 4.

I just created QENG-2555 to track testing support for 9.4. Seems it is required for unit testing on postgresql, for now we'll rely on travis & acceptance until QENG gets this done (not only this, it seems nobody has the ability to run unit tests on 9.4 today using internal jenkins, which seems a little scary being so close to release).

PDB-1610 created to continue the deprecation discussion and work for 2.3.x.

Just switching permissions for this ticket to public again, as this ticket will go out in our release notes.
