release notes:

  finally caught up w/ PostgreSQL 7.3.10!  but just when things seem to
  be quieting down...  looks like 7.4.x has some very interesting bits,
  too; the pull is strong.


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).  It has bugs, and the
  interfaces may change from version to version.
  To build Guile-PG you need to have installed both the PostgreSQL
  frontend library libpq, and a version of Guile that can load
  binary module (a b c) from file a/b/ or a/b/c/ under
  This version of Guile-PG has been tested with PostgreSQL 7.3.10
  and Guile, but you may find that it works with other
  combinations.  If so, please let us know the good news.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 0.29 | 2005-08-25
    - Dropped proc: where-clausifier
    - Dropped proc: tuples-result->table
        These used to be in module (database postgres-table); see NEWS
        entry for version 0.26 (2005-02-24).  The first proc can be
        emulated with `string-append', and the latter with a combination
        of #:tuples-result->alists (or #:tuples-result->object-alist)
        commands to a `pgtable-manager' closure followed by a mapping
        into a two-dimensional array.
        As a side effect of dropping `tuples-result->table', the closure
        returned by `pgtable-manager' no longer recognizes the commands
        #:t-obj-walk, #:table->object-alist and #:table->alists.
    - For `gxrepl', results are now printed with " | " field separator
        That is, space-pipe-space, instead of simply pipe, as before.
        The result is that gxrepl in an Emacs buffer (preferred env :-)
        is much more friendly to `dabbrev-expand'.
    - All (database postgres) procs now tested
        The `XFAIL_TESTS' in tests/ has been removed.  This
        means that we don't expect any tests to fail now; a failing test
        indicates a bug.  Note that coverage does not imply good coverage!
    - Support files guile.m4 and modsup.h synched with Guile
