== PostgreSQL Daily News - April 01 2007 ==

PostgreSQL 10.0, now called PREGRES, was released today. Some new
features include:

- Close integration with libdwim.

- De-supporting SQL. Postgres will now use POSTQUEL exclusively.
"Eleven years of SQL is enough," said Bruce Momjian, "It's time to
get back to our roots."

- A new table type: PgISAM. Rather than using the cumbersome and
complicated MVCC model, it simply acquires global database locks on
read and write. "It took ten years to create a benchmark that would
make this one look good," said Peter Eisentraut, in explanation for
the delay.

Devrim GUNDUZ has left Command Prompt for Oracle. "I sold my soul for
money," he cackled.
