Key changes since the 3.0.0alpha2 are as follows:

#4044: Fix selectivity issue with support functions. (Paul Ramsey)
This resulted in significant improvement in leveraging parallelism for
PostgreSQL 12
NOTE: You need to be running PostgreSQL 12beta1 to take advantage of this.

#4311: Make wagyu the default option to validate polygons. 
This option requires a C++11 compiler and will use CXXFLAGS (not CFLAGS). 
It is only enabled if built with MVT support (protobuf) and should speed up
mvt tile generation
Add --without-wagyu to disable this option and keep the behavior from 2.5
(Raúl Marín)

4198, Add ST_ConstrainedDelaunayTriangles SFCGAL function (Darafei
Note you need to do: CREATE EXTENSION postgis_sfcgal;
To have the new function available.

Please test and report back with any issues.

Thank you,
PostGIS Development Team
