release notes:

  Bugfix + updated planned retirements.


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:

  - 0.46 | 2013-03-14

    - bugfix: handle connection options w/o "backup" env var

        Previously, ‘pg-conndefaults’ expected every option to have a
        backup env var (e.g., option ‘#:host’ and env var ‘PGHOST’).
        For later versions of PostgreSQL which no longer maintain this
        1:1 correspondance, Guile-PG would segfault.

        Now, in such cases, the value associated w/ the key ‘#:envvar’
        in the alist returned by ‘pg-conndefaults’ is ‘#f’.

    - planned retirement
      - procedure ‘(database postgres) pg-getline’
      - procedure ‘(database postgres) pg-getlineasync’
      - procedure ‘(database postgres) pg-putline’
      - procedure ‘(database postgres) pg-endcopy’

        These procedures are obsoleted by ‘pg-get-copy-data’ and
        ‘pg-put-copy-data’.  They WILL BE REMOVED by 2013-12-31.

        Actually, the first two were originally -- in Guile-PG 0.41
        (2011-09-29) -- planned to be removed by 2012-12-31.
        Support has been extended for solidarity w/ the latter two.

    - bootstrap tools upgraded
      - GNU Texinfo 5.1
