As I wrote in my previous post, we spent a lot of sleepless nights trying to make PgMDD Unicode friendly. And now there is finish line in sight.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you MicroOLAP Database Designer for PostgreSQL v1.8.0-beta.

“Why 1.8?” – one may ask. Yes, indeed. Our last stable release was v1.3.2, so why such a huge leap?

There are two reasons. The first, Unicode support is a milestone for the branch v2.x of the product. Thus half the job is done.

The second, is more tricky. As you probably know i18n numeronym stands for internationalization (where 18 stands for the number of letters between the first i and last n). And we sincerely believe that the Unicode support is a prerequisite for proper internationalization.

That’s the story!
