Unfortunately I don’t have any experience with PostgreSQL but for all DBAs who are familiar… PostgreSQL 9.0 is here! The PostgreSQL Global Development Group announces the availability of our most eagerly awaited release. PostgreSQL 9.0 includes built-in, binary replication, and over a dozen other major features which will appeal to everyone from web developers to database hackers.
9.0 includes more major features than any release before it, including:
- Hot standby
- Streaming replication
- In-place upgrades
- 64-bit Windows builds
- Easy mass permissions management
- Anonymous blocks and named parameter calls for stored procedures
- New windowing functions and ordered aggregates
For details on the over 200 additions and improvements in this version, developed by over a hundred contributors, please see the release notes HERE.
I decided to visit Amazon and to find out something usable for reading… This smells good…
