Frequently Asked Questions
Which versions of Postgres are supported?
I have sucessfully tested connecting to servers running PostgreSQL 8.0, 8.4, 9.1, 9.2, 9.3 and 9.4, including Amazon Redshift. PG Commander uses a patched version of libpq 9.3.4.
Why is there an older version on the App Store?
When I am done testing a new version of PG Commander, I immediately publish it on my website. At the same time, I send it to Apple for review. As soon as Apple approves it, the new version becomes available on the App Store. Apple usually takes a few days to review applications, but sometimes it might take two weeks or longer.
Why does PG Commander require OS X 10.8?
By requiring Mountain Lion, I don't have to find workarounds for bugs in Lion. Additionally, I can also make use of new APIs that make my life easier, like the new Objective-C accessors, or block based image drawing methods.
Is PG Commander Open Source?
No. But if you want to know how I implemented some part of it, just email me! I also occasionally publish reusable classes and methods as Open Source.
