Hi all, 

I've made an application on the postgres announcement page but I'm also passing on this information via email.

I'm announcing the latest version of pg_live which is now available for download.




Pg_live is a free Linux Live CD community project. It is an enhanced adaptation of one of the Ubuntu family of distributions, known as Xubuntu, and has been designed and optimized expressly for the PostgreSQL Database administrator and enthusiast.

Pg_live is designed to introduce to both the general public and the experienced DBA to the possibilities of PostgreSQL. Originally created for OSCON 2004, pg_live development continues and is used today as a teaching aid and as a marketing tool for the community at conferences and tech-shows throughout the world.

Describing all of what pg_live contains would make for a very long and boring announcement. Therefore, I'll try to give as brief and as descriptive a breakdown of what it has.

The pg_live Live CD uses an xcfe GUI environment. It boots, by default, with three active services: a PHP enable Apache webserver, SSH and of course a running instance of PostgreSQL.

The PostgreSQL server has been precompiled with the following procedural languages: plpgsql, plperl, pltcl, plpython, plruby, pljava and plr.

SLONY replication, and connection pooling via pgpool is present.

As can be inferred by the procedural languages, pg_live also contains a number of programming environments with the relevant connectivity libraries permitting access into postgres i.e. R, tcl, python, perl and java (JDBC).

Three clients are present: psql, pgadmin3 and phppgadmin.

Finally, pg_live has thousands of pages of reference documentation, both in English and in French. These include the default postgres references as well as a number of diverse howto's.

Thanks to the kind support from the New York City BSD User Group (NYCBUG, which is pronounced "Nice-Bug") you can download pg_live at;SUBM=10101
