phpPgAdmin 5.0-beta1 Released

phpPgAdmin 5.0-beta1 Released
-------------------------------

15th September 2010

The phpPgAdmin Team is proud to announce a new major release of
phpPgAdmin is coming. Version 5.0 will add many new features, bug fixes and
updated translations over the previous version.

Presently a first beta version is available. It has already been well tested using
our automated selenium tests against PostgreSQL 7.4 up to the latest 9.0.

Since the last 4.2 release, a lot of bugs have been fixed and a fair amount of
code have been cleaned up.

We plan to release phpPgAdmin 5.0 in the next coming weeks, depending on feedbacks.
