I'm pleased to announce the release of py-postgresql 0.8. This release
marks months of work porting the 2.x code to Python 3 and making
numerous improvements. py-postgresql is a port of pg_proboscis-1.0 and
other projects under the "pg/python project umbrella". This release
simplifies the project structure by combining the smaller projects
into one easy-to-manage package.

Win32 Installer:


* BSD/MIT/PSF Licensed.

* Documentation. =)

* Pure-Python + C optimizations. No need for libpq.

* Prepared Statement driven interface/native APIs. (DB-API 2.0 is here
too ;)
(PG-API, [Was: "pg_greentrunk"])

* Scrollable cursors with configurable direction for paging.

* COPY support. [iter(db.prepare("COPY table TO STDOUT"))]

* Windows support. We love you too. ;)

* pg_python quick console.
$ pg_python -h localhost -> Gives a Python prompt with a connection
bound to `db`.

* Support for most PostgreSQL types. (datetime.*, numeric->decimal,
and more)

* Composite Types and Arrays. Fully structured for easy access.

* Row-objects returned by cursors support
Mapping and Sequence interfaces. (row["colname"], row[0])

* Over 150 tests and counting!

Sample PG-API code via pg_python:

$ pg_python -h localhost -U postgres -d postgres
