PostgreSQL 9.0 Is Now Available
Phoronix: PostgreSQL 9.0 Is Now Available
While we have yet to see any official release announcement, if you browse the PostgreSQL FTP server you can now find the final packages for PostgreSQL 9.0.0. This major update to PostgreSQL brings easy-to-use replication, mass permission-changing, anonymous code blocks, enhanced stored procedure support, exclusion constraints, deferrable unique constraints, and a variety of other enhancements...
Ooooh. Our company probably won't migrate to this for a little while but I'd like to hear other people's experiences.
I don't think there are so important improvement for a major jump, though probably they moved the first digit because of some incompatibilities.
I'm glad to finally see an easy way to have one R/W master with RO salves!
Postgres is great, I've used it daily for about five years now. If anyone is using mysql and doesn't like it for some reason, give postgres a go. I'm not trying to start a flamewar, but I do love postgres. The words that come to mind when I think of it are "predictable, consistent and solid" It's never let me down. I started on version 8, versions 7 and below did seem to have some quirkiness to them, but thats all in the past.
I'd like to echo this. We switched from MySQL about a year ago and we've never looked back. PostGIS also is particularly awesome.

I don't work with postgres directly (more a mysql guy), I do have to troubleshoot and develop with it from time to time. I really like some of the features it has.
