pkgsrc/databases/guile-pg: DESCR Makefile distinfo
Update to 0.39. Resolves type errors vs newer pgsql.
(approval to update during freeze by agc@)
- 0.39 | 2010-01-11
- Dropped (database postgres) procs
These were pre-announced in Guile-PG 0.38 (2009-06-22) NEWS.
- Proc `(database postgres) pg-parameter-status' no longer takes keyword
This was pre-announced in Guile-PG 0.38 (2009-06-22) NEWS.
- Maintenance uses autoconf 2.65, automake 1.11, libtool 2.2.6b
- 0.38 | 2009-06-22
- Support for PostgreSQL 7.3 and earlier dropped
Sorry, this was not pre-announced. Note that the subsequent
version, i.e. PostgreSQL 7.4, was released 2003-11-17, over five
- Dropped (database postgres) proc: pg-get-connection
This was pre-announced in 0.37 (2008-05-24) NEWS.
- External rep no longer includes "serial number"
These were pre-announced in 0.37 (2008-05-24) NEWS.
- Planned retirement
These (database postgres) procs provide or rely on associations
that can better be expressed using normal Scheme facilities such
as object properties, hash tables, etc, and thus are deemed a
redundant maintenance burden; they WILL BE REMOVED by 2009-12-31.
- Proc `(database postgres) pg-parameter-status' takes symbol `parm'
These are equivalent:
(pg-parameter-status CONN #:session_authorization)
(pg-parameter-status CONN 'session_authorization)
Note, however, that support for keyword `parm' is a misfeature,
and WILL BE REMOVED by 2009-12-31.
- Proc `(database postgres-qcons) sql-quote' more standards compliant
Previously, this did single-quote escaping by inserting a
backslash character prior to every single-quote. The result is
acceptable by PostgreSQL, but is not standards compliant. Now,
it does the escaping by doubling each single-quote, which is
standards compliant and less prone to trigger warnings from the
more recent PostgreSQL versions (8.2 and later).
bef: (sql-quote "a'b") => "'a\\'b'"
now: (sql-quote "a'b") => "'a''b'"
- Changes to `pgtable-manager' (and thus `pgtable-worker')
- Support for DEFAULT
You can now use the keyword #:DEFAULT to specify DEFAULT as the
value to insert into a table, or to update a column. Indeed, for
column values, any keyword now expands to its name (sans `#:').
- #:insert-values no longer filters "serial"
Previously, columns with "serial" type were filtered, so that it
was possible to #:insert-values specifying only values for the
other columns. Now, such usage raises a "column count mismatch"
error; you must explicitly use #:DEFAULT. For example, given a
table with column types "text", "serial", "text":
bef: (W #:insert-values "foo" "bar") => ok
now: (W #:insert-values "foo" "bar") => error
(W #:insert-values "foo" #:DEFAULT "bar") => ok
Although technically speaking the new behavior is incompatible,
the previous behavior was never documented (secret misfeature),
so the impact on your code is likely to be zero (no worries).
- Connection object xrep omits "port" if "host" is a socket dir
When the connection is Unix-domain (i.e., the "host" is a string
that begins with slash that names a directory), the concept of
"port" makes no sense.
- Manual table-of-contents moved forward
It used to be (strangely but perhaps following some outdated
convention) at the end of the document.
- New (database postgres) procs
While we wait for Guile to go multibyte (and stay there), this
is a small building-block that eases "mostly ignorant" string
This returns an integer representation of the server version of
a connection, or `#f' if the connection is closed.
- New (database postgres-resx) proc: object<-result
This is useful for `SELECT EXPR;' where the result tuple
consists of one row and one column.
- Maintenance uses autoconf 2.63, automake 1.11, libtool 2.2.6
