First release candidate of PostgreSQL 9.1 arrives
The development of version 9.1 of the open source PostgreSQL SQL database is approaching completion; the new version is expected to be finalised before the end of September 2011. The developers say that the first release candidate, which has just been issued, fixes all of the bugs that were reported during beta testing, but that no further new features have been added.
The development team asks all users who reported bugs during beta testing to verify that their problems have been resolved in this release candidate in order to ensure that nothing has been overlooked.
Further information can be found in the release notes. PostgreSQL 9.1 RC1 source code, as well as executable versions, are available to download from the project's site. The latest stable release is version 9.0.4. The source code is made available under the terms of the PostgreSQL License, described as a liberal open source licence, similar to the BSD or MIT licences.
