== Postgres Weekly News - April 01 2009 ==
Following MySQL's lead as usual, the PostgreSQL project is dividing into several lines of development:

  • Shizzle: High-performance and Feature-Free
  • MaryMary: Compiled with libhaltingproblem
  • Narcona: Painless installation and setup
  • OurThing: Lots of sources, based in Sicily
  • XPostgres: Everybody who's ever worked on Postgres code, back to UC Berkeley and Illustra.
  • Moon/PostgreSQL: Corporate support, as long as it lasts.
