What do you mean "newer versions of MySQL offering features like views,
SPs"?? Don't you mean "will be offering"? These features are still a long
way from production code in MySQL. Both features are part of 5.0 release.
MySQL 4.1 (first development release) was announced in January 2003 and is
still in beta.
The announcement also contains:

MySQL 5.0 (alpha developer release) was announced one year later and is
still listed as Alpha.
PostreSQL is worth the switch because these and many other features are
available TODAY. Personally, I compared the two products early in 2000 and
chose PostgreSQL at that time.
