I have updated the version of PostgreSQL in cygwin/contrib to 7.1.2-3.
The tarballs should be available on a Cygwin mirror near you shortly.
Note that there are no (intended) functional changes with this package.
The primary motivation for this release is to build against (and be
dependent on) readline 4.2-3, the latest Cygwin readline package.
This is necessary due to the API change between readline 4.1 and 4.2.
I have also taken this opportunity to include standard PostgreSQL README
type files that were missing from previous packages.
PostgreSQL is an open-source, Object-Relational DBMS. If interested,
see the PostgreSQL web site for more details:
If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
then you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another
The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be updated on your
system and will install newer packages automatically.
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: [hidden email] . I would appreciate if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly. This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.
If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.
