release notes:

  All caught up on the PostgreSQL side, now to turn to Guile...

README excerpt:

  Guile-PG is a collection of modules for Guile allowing access to
  the PostgreSQL RDBMS from Scheme programs.

  The low-level module ‘(database postgres)’ provides an almost
  one-to-one correspondence with the PostgreSQL "libpq" C library
  interface.  The other modules build on it to provide abstractions
  and convenience procedures.

NEWS for 0.49 (2020-11-13):

  - dependency clarified: state range

    Previously, the README file intimated that any Guile 1.4.x and
    later would work w/ Guile-PG.  This has now been clarified to
    state the actual working range (1.4.x to 2.0.x, inclusive).

    We have plans for adding support for 2.2.x (and maybe 3.x) in
    the near to middling future.

    See also file test/OK.

  - Guile "auto-compilation" suppressed

    In all three phases: configuration, build, and test, Guile 2.x
    "auto-compilation" of .scm to .go files is suppressed by setting
    the env var ‘GUILE_AUTO_COMPILE=0’.

    We will do intentional compilation at some point, as soon as we
    figure out how to DTRT.  See project CMOD-PLAY for experiments.

  - testing upgraded for PostgreSQL 10 through 13

    Some of the failing tests when run against these versions of
    PostgreSQL have been upgraded, notably those concerning
    ‘pg-server-version’ and ‘pg-oid-value’.

    For PostgreSQL 13, the module ‘(postgres meta)’ is broken; its
    testing is disabled (exit 77 => SKIP) for now.

  - bootstrap/maintenance tools

    upgraded:

     Guile-BAUX 20201108.2335.8592e21

May I ask how this differs from guile-squee?  Is it "faster"?

   May I ask how this differs from guile-squee?  Is it "faster"?

Can't say -- i've never used guile-squee, personally.  However,
a brief scan of the guile-squee homepage tells me that Guile-PG
is "more", in the sense of offering not only libpq wrapping, but
also other modules related to working w/ PostgreSQL, as well as
documentation:

 http://www.nongnu.org/guile-pg/doc/index.html

OTOH, for many people "less is more".  :-D

I suppose i should look into guile-squee some more, especially
if/how it handles lobj (large objects) and ports for Guile 2.2
and onward.  Any hints on that topic most welcome!
