TheFuzzy writes "Another year, another major release. The PostgreSQL development team has finally released PostgreSQL 8.4 (and there was much rejoicing). This version contains windowing functions for the Biz Intelligence types, and recursive queries for everyone else doing a web application. Postgres has also put a lot of work into changing many of the things which made it "hard to use" in the past. Try it and see if you agree."

Windowing Functions (1)

OK, this is really exciting. I have been anxiously awaiting the windowing functions. RANK and DENSE_RANK are huge benefits as are all of the other windowing functions.
