Say hello to postgresql-8.0. Some of the highlights of the new version
are savepoints (within transactions), point-in-time recovery and
tablespaces. Check out the release notes and the shiny new
PostgreSQL.org website at:
The port uses the new postgresql ports' layout and is split into a
server and a client part. The following knobs can be used by ports
depending on PostgreSQL:
# USE_PGSQL - Add PostgreSQL client dependency.
# If no version is given (by the maintainer via the port or
# by the user via defined variable), try to find the
# currently installed version. Fall back to default if
# necessary (PostgreSQL-7.4 = 74).
# - PostgreSQL default version. Can be overridden within a port.
# Default: 74.
# - Maintainer can set an arbitrary version of PostgreSQL by
# using it.
# - This variable can be defined if the ports doesn't support
# one or more versions of PostgreSQL.
