Not so active

Not been doing too much PostgreSQL related stuff lately (thus no blog posts). Couple of reasons - lots to do at work before summer, and since it's now sailing season no (or at least a lot less) PostgreSQL in the weekends.

Quick status report on my current pg work: The win32-build-with-visual-c++ initial code patch has been applied. Still to do is a couple of minor things (there's a tiny patch for pl/perl for example), and then the actual build scripts. The build scripts work, but they are not cleaned up all the way yet. I also need to finish porting over things like gen_fmgroids that will be needed to be able to build from CVS.

Finally, I need to do something around the regression tests. Haven't decided yet if it might be easiest to just run the regression tests under msys against a VC++ built backend, or if I need to get them running outside it yet. And it does have to integrate with the buildfarm some way or other... (Currently running parts from msys and parts outside, and the backend does pass all the regression tests, but it's not trivial to run them)

But hopefully it'll all be worth it - we'd finally get things like proper debugger support on Windows! (And faster buildtimes, and judging by the results of other projects slightly better actual performance as well)

Right now I'm not particularly disappointed that I didn't get a slot at the conference, consdering that'd give me an even tighter schedule right now. Now I get to just listen and pick on others ;-)

And finally, happy midsummer to all those who celebrate it - and of course to those that don't as well.
