PostgreSQL 8.1 released!


Finally ready for production, or at least intense testing.

Biggest news:
  • Role-based access control, similar to Oracle
  • Bitmap scans. Faster index usage, fewer tuples to check.
  • min() and max() can now come in on an index
  • Table partioning. Could be quite nice to have if you have huge tables. Think billions of rows.
See the full list here.

Go test check it out!

Oh yes, PgAdmin 1.4 was released. Download that here.

Damn, I need more RAM for all my VMware instances.
