Ticket #1929 (closed defect: fixed)
regression issue: ST_Polygon used to return simplest polygon
|Reported by:||robe||Owned by:||dustymugs|
In 2.0, when I wrote the docs: http://postgis.refractions.net/documentation/manual-svn/RT_ST_Polygon.html
ST_Polygon would return a polygon or multipolygon. Now I see it always seems to return a multipolygon even if that multipolygon only contains one polygon. The answer is different too, but I have to verify dataset is the same to be sure.
If polygon/multipolygon is intentional it should probably be flagged as such in the docs. Also docs are missing an enhanced flag to denote the change from partial plpgsql based to full faster C-based. Is that okay to put in or are you still working on things and want to wait.
