PostgreSQL 8.1 Available

LordHunter317 Re:at last "SELECT ... FOR UPDATE NOWAIT" (261 comments)

Nice feature to have, but people have been using postgres (and other databases) sucessfully for years. How did they work around it?

You either move the blocking operation elsewhere (i.e., a trigger) or you don't. Data consistency is more important than performance (normally). The user can wait.
