Announce: First public release of PgSQL Version 1.0

PgSQL v1.0 has been released.  This is the first public release of PgSQL.
It is available at

PgSQL is a package of two (2) modules that provide a Python DB-API 2.0
compliant interface to PostgreSQL databases.  The first module, libpq,
exports the PostgreSQL C API to Python.  This module is written in C and
can be compiled into Python or can be dynamically loaded on demand.  The
second module, PgSQL, provides the DB-API 2.0 compliant interface and
support for various PostgreSQL data types, such as INT8, NUMERIC, MONEY,
BOOL, ARRAYS, etc.  This module is written in Python and works with
PostgreSQL 6.5.2 or later and Python 1.5.2 or later.

PostgreSQL is a sophisticated Object-Relational DBMS, supporting almost all
SQL constructs, including sub-selects, transactions, and user-defined types
and functions. It is the most advanced open-source database available
anywhere More information about PostgreSQL can be found at the PostgreSQL
home page at

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming lang-
uage.  It combines remarkable power with very clear syntax.  It has
modules, classes, exceptions, very high level dynamic data types, and
dynamic typing.  There are interfaces to many system calls and libraries,
as well as to various windowing systems (X11, Motif, Tk, Mac, MFC).  New
builtin modules are easily written in C or C++.  Python is also usable as
an extension language for applications that need a programmable interface. 
Python is copyrighted but freely usable and distributable, even for
commercial use.  More information about Python can be found on the Python
home page at
