native win32 version

P: n/a
Hi,

sometime ago I heard that there will be a native win32 version of
postgresql 7.4.
Is this true or will there only be a cygwin version like now?

What do you think, how stable and fast is the cygwin version?

Best regards,
Christian

The native win32 port has been pushed back from 7.4 into (hopefully)
7.5, but cygwin version will still be available as always.

Well, some people do run in in production using the cygwin version, so
it is stable enough and fast enough for some folks. I don't think you'll
ever see a recommendation from the development group to run postgresql
on windows over a *nix OS for production purposes (even when native
win32 comes about, theres just too much lacking in windows) however for
development purposes it should be more than fine.
