We are happy to introduce the release 2.5 of Psycopg, packed with several juicy new features!
Here are a few highlights of the release:
I'm happy to announce the release of Psycopg 2.4.6: a huge thank you to the many contributors.
This is a bugfix release, introducing no new feature. There are several small corrections in different areas (copy, adaptation, use of extra cursors, stability). The biggest improvements are with the Zope adapter: Zope users using previous 2.4.x versions are encouraged to update to version 2.4.6 soon.

Mostly a bugfix release, with as usual a couple of small feature added:
Psycopg 2.4.2 has been released: it brings a few small but interesting new features, and a lot of bug fixes.
My goal was to install Psycopg on Windows using MinGW and the PostgreSQL binary package.
I have used the MinGW GCC binaries packaged by Giovanni Bajo. The package takes care of a lot of details, for instance registering MinGW as default compiler for Python, plus some magic I don't even want to know, and makes the entire process simple enough.
Daniele stacked another round of fixes on the devel branch, so it is time for another release. So, as always, kudos to Daniele and here are the direct download links:
Release notes attached, as always. And al always, have fun,
this is probably one of the best psycopg releases ever. Daniele, Jason and all the others that sent patches did an impressive work to have psycopg build and work flawlessy on all the supported platforms (well.. we can probably do a little bit better on MacOS but everything else is almost perfect). So here it is (followed by NEWS excerpt, as always):
