PostgreSQL version 8.3 Released

by Frank Wiles

I just got word that version 8.3 of PostgreSQL has been released. Along with the usual amount of improvements there are some new features in 8.3 that should be of interest to PostgreSQL admins and developers such as:

  • Integrated TSearch
  • ENUM and UUID data types
  • Faster sorting technique used for LIMIT operations
  • Faster LIKE and ILIKE operations
  • Lazy XID assignment which will make many read only operations much faster

Check out the full list of features at the PostgreSQL site or download it from the download section of their site.
