Backward compatibility? Never heard of it!

Playing with fresh PostgreSQL 9.2beta2 I cannot find spclocation column of a system catalog pg_tablespace. First my thought was that I’m too tired. But then I found mentioning about this at pgsql-hackers by Magnus Hagander:

And IIRC, we don’t actually *use* spclocation anywhere. How about we
just get rid of them as independents?

Oh, really?!!! WTF? How about other developers, ha? I’m using this. I really do. Don’t know how about other guys, but I will need additional nasty checks for server version to know what should I use: pg_get_tablespace_location(oid) or tablespace.spclocation

Thanks a lot guys! Way to go!

PgMDD v1.8.0-beta with Unicode support is out!

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.

PgMDD-1.8.0
Click to enalrge

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!
