Platform and Version Used

At the time of this book’s writing, version 7.1.3 is the most current release of PostgreSQL. This is the version used in all examples, and for the construction of our example database, booktown. All examples should be compatible with any of the PostgreSQL 7.1 versions, which is the reason you will see the version referred to as 7.1.x within our text.
