pg version 0.13.0 has been released!

* <https://bitbucket.org/ged/ruby-pg>

Pg is the Ruby interface to the {PostgreSQL RDBMS}[http://www.postgresql.org/].

It works with {PostgreSQL 8.3 and later}[http://bit.ly/6AfPhm].

A small example usage:

 #!/usr/bin/env ruby

 require 'pg'

 # Output a table of current connections to the DB
 conn = PG.connect( dbname: 'sales' )
 conn.exec( "SELECT * FROM pg_stat_activity" ) do |result|
   puts "     PID | User             | Query"
	result.each do |row|
     puts " %7d | %-16s | %s " %
       row.values_at('procpid', 'usename', 'current_query')
   end
 end

In the near future, I'll also be pushing out new versions of the 'ruby-pg' and 'postgres' gems which point people to 'pg', as the alternative names are confusing and contain code that hasn't been touched in  4+ years. People with dependencies on the existing code will, of course, continue to be able to install and use the old versions.


Changes:

## v0.13.0 [] Michael Granger <ged / FaerieMUD.org>

Reorganization of modules/classes to be better Ruby citizens (with backward-compatible aliases):
- Created toplevel namespace 'PG' to correspond with the gem name.
- Renamed PGconn to PG::Connection (with ::PGconn alias)
- Renamed PGresult to PG::Result (with ::PGresult alias)
- Renamed PGError to PG::Error (with ::PGError alias)
- Declare all constants inside PG::Constants, then include them in
 PG::Connection and PG::Result for backward-compatibility, and
 in PG for convenience.
- Split the extension source up by class/module.
- Removed old compatibility code for PostgreSQL versions < 8.3

Documentation:
- Clarified licensing, updated to Ruby 1.9's license.
- Merged authors list, added some missing people to the Contributor's
 list.
- Cleaned up the sample/ directory
- Making contact info a bit clearer, link to the Google+ page and
 the mailing list

Enhancements:
- Added a convenience method: PG.connect -> PG::Connection.new

Bugfixes:
- Fixed LATIN5-LATIN10 Postgres<->Ruby encoding conversions
