I heart PostgreSQL

I didn’t see this until today, since it went out the PostgreSQL newsletter which goes to my work account, but I thought it was pretty funny for an April Fool’s gag:

PostgreSQL 10.0, now called PREGRES, was released today. Some new features include: […] - A new table type: PgISAM. Rather than using the cumbersome and complicated MVCC model, it simply acquires global database locks on read and write. “It took ten years to create a benchmark that would make this one look good,” said Peter Eisentraut, in explanation for the delay.

    This PostgreSQL newsletter is, until today, in th official site of PostgreSQL. How can it be, if it’s a April Fool’s gag?

    I believe it was posted/sent out on April 1.
