release should be identical to the final version of PostgreSQL 9.4,

PostgreSQL 9.4 RC 1 and try it with your workloads and applications as
soon as you can, and give feedback to the PostgreSQL developers.
Features and APIs in this release candidate should be identical to
9.4.0, allowing you to build and test your applications against it.

Ora2Pg 14.1 released

Ora2Pg 14 released

Dalibo is proud to announce that version 14.1 of Ora2Pg, a free and reliable
tool used to migrate an Oracle database to PostgreSQL, has been officially
released and is publicly available for download.

This major release adds full export of Oracle Locator or Spatial
geometries into
PostGis, SDO_GEOM functions and SDO_OPERATOR are also translated. This
export
adds the following features:

  1. Basic and complex geometry types support
  2. Geometry data conversion from Oracle to PostGIS
  3. Spatial Index conversion
  4. Geometry metadata / constraints support
  5. Spatial functions conversion

For spatial data export, you have three choice, WKT to export data using
SDO_UTIL.TO_WKTGEOMETRY(), WKB to export data using
SDO_UTIL.TO_WKBGEOMETRY()
and INTERNAL to export geometry using a Pure Perl library. Unlike the first
two methods, INTERNAL is fast and do not raise Out Of Memory. The export is
done in WKT format so that you can verify your geometry before importing to
PostgreSQL.

Other additional major features are:

  - Parallel table processing.
  - Auto generation of migration template with a complete project tree.

The second annual Nordic PGDay will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, at the

Please see http://2015.nordicpgday.org/cfp/ for details on how to submit.

Early bird registration, with a limited number of tickets, will open soon.

Finally, we are also looking for sponsors! We have two different levels of

psqlODBC 09.03.0400 Released

Hi, all.

We are release of psqlODBC 09.03.0400. this is a some bugfix release.
please see the notes at:
http://psqlodbc.projects.pgfoundry.org/

psqlODBC may be downloaded from
http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/odbc/versions/ in source, Windows
Installer, merge module, and basic zip file formats.

New Windows installer installs both 32-bit and 64-bit driver at once
on 64-bit OS. Both drivers may be needed on 64-bit OS because 32-bit
applications require 32-bit driver and 64-bit applications require
64-bit driver.

Please post any bug reports to the pgsql-odbc <at> postgresql.org mailing list.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved with the
development, testing and bug fixing of the updated driver.

We are grateful to the help of many peoples. Thanks!

psqlODBC team.
