Guile-PG 0.44 available

release notes:

  Bug fix plus "make check" improvements.


README excerpt:

  Guile-PG is a collection of modules for Guile allowing access to
  the PostgreSQL RDBMS from Scheme programs.

  The low-level module ‘(database postgres)’ provides an almost
  one-to-one correspondence with the PostgreSQL "libpq" C library
  interface.  Other higher-level modules, typically named
  ‘(database postgres-FOO)’, provide abstractions and convenience

  This is alpha code (pre 1.0 release), tested with various, but
  not all, versions of Guile and PostgreSQL.  It may have bugs,
  and the interfaces may change from version to version.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 0.44 | 2012-04-20

    - distribution now .tar.xz

        If you have GNU tar, you can use "tar xf" and it will DTRT.
        If not, you can use "xz -dc TARBALL | tar xf -" to unpack.

    - bugfix: ‘pg-get-copy-data’ handles unspecified ‘async?’

        Previously, if ‘async?’ was unspecified, it was incorrectly
        interpreted as true (i.e., "not false").  Now, if unspecified,
        it is interpreted correctly as false.

    - testing slack for pre-8.1 ‘pg-client-encoding’

        Previously, the types-table test was too strict when checking
        the ‘pg-client-encoding’ return value, expecting "UTF-8" only.
        Now, it accepts also "UNICODE", which is the norm for PostgreSQL
        prior to 8.1.

    - support for ‘make check KEEPD=1’

        If you run "make check" many times, you can avoid daemon bounce
        overhead by specifying ‘KEEPD=1’, which inhibits daemon killing.
