The Tutorial shows you How to Install and Getting-Started with PostgreSQL 9.x Database for Gentoo 11.X-12.X-13.X i686/x8664 Kde/Gnome Linux.

As with every annual release, PostgreSQL 9.x includes many New Features to make working with PostgreSQL easier, more flexible and more fun for application developers, administrators and architects.

The New PostgreSQL Features include:

  • Additional JSON constructor and extractor methods
  • Automatically updatable VIEWs
  • Parallel pg_dump to speed backups of large databases
  • LATERAL JOINs

Further, PostgreSQL 9.4’s User-Defined Background Workers allow developers to write task managers, request handlers, parallel processors, queuing tools and other helper applications to enable PostgreSQL as a workload coordinator.

One example of this already released is Mongres, a background worker which accepts MongoDB queries, interprets them and passes them on to PostgreSQL.
