Ever since PostgreSQL 11 we have JIT (Just-In-Time compilation).
Information about JIT is displayed in explain analyze plans, but up to this moment, explain.depesz.com didn't display it properly. But not anymore. Thanks to release 1.05 of Pg::Explain and subsequent change in templates for the site, you can now see nice JIT info.

rewritten into queries using existing syntax, and that is what this
patch does in the rewriter.
