Support parallel aggregation.

results to produce the final answer.

Directly modify foreign tables.
postgres_fdw can now sent an UPDATE or DELETE statement directly to
the foreign server in simple cases, rather than sending a SELECT FOR
UPDATE statement and then updating or deleting rows one-by-one.

Add simple VACUUM progress reporting.
There's a lot more that could be done here yet - in particular, this
reports only very coarse-grained information about the index vacuuming
phase - but even as it stands, the new pg_stat_progress_vacuum can
tell you quite a bit about what a long-running vacuum is actually

On 9th of March, Robert Haas committed patch:
Add a generic command progress reporting facility.
Using this facility, any utility command can report the target relation
upon which it is operating, if there is one, and up to 10 64-bit
counters; the intent of this is that users should be able to figure out
what a utility command is doing without having to resort to ugly hacks
like attaching strace to a backend.
As a demonstration, this adds very crude reporting to lazy vacuum; we
just report the target relation and nothing else. A forthcoming patch
will make VACUUM report a bunch of additional data that will make this
much more interesting. But this gets the basic framework in place.
