A basic version of materialized view are being delivered in 9.3, see depesz's article. However, it's a very limited version as you have to call REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW to get the database to update the view. This will hopefully improve to become automatic in later versions soon.

    It has been improved in 9.4, so you can REFRSH the view concurrently now, if it has any UNIQUE index. See depesz's article: depesz.com/2013/07/22/… – alfonx May 19 '15 at 13:43
