PSQL v12 New Features
Online Defragmenter - PSQL v12 database files can be defragmented without any engine down time. Reads and writes can operate continuously during defragmentation. The Defragmenter GUI will detect data files in use and can analyze fragmentation levels of files, allowing users to quickly find the biggest problem first. The online defragmentation feature can be launched from PCC. Check out a summary of this feature in the Defragmenter Datasheet. More details are available in the Monitoring Section (Chapter 13) of the PSQL v12 Advanced Operations Guide or you can review the recorded Online Defragmenter Webinar.
Enhanced VM Licensing - VM live migration capabilities have now been expanded to PSQL v12 Server and Workgroup editions. This means that a virtual machine with PSQL v12 Server or PSQL v12 Workgroup can be migrated without invalidating the PSQL v12 license. Learn more in the PSQL v12 What's New.
Simplified PSQL Vx Licensing - PSQL Vx Server 12 is licensed by data-in-use only. Unlimited users, unlimited cores (on a single machine), and unlimited devices. After the connection during the initial authorization process, PSQL v12 Vx Server edition no longer requires Internet connectivity for operational use.
PSQL Unicode Support - PSQL v12 expands its multilingual support by providing SQL storage for wide-character data. With PSQL v12, the SQL layer provides access to Btrieve data in the form of new relational types NCHAR, NVARCHAR and NLONGVARCHAR. PSQL v12 also includes a new ODBC Unicode Interface driver for applications with wide-character data. Learn more in PSQL v12 What's New and in the Database Globalization Section of the PSQL v12 Advanced Operations Guide.
Installer Update - The PSQL v12 installation package will detect the OS bitness and automatically determine the bitness of the PSQL components that need to be installed. If the OS is 64-bit, PSQL will install 64-bit components and all 32-bit components that have no corresponding 64-bit versions. If the OS is 32-bit, PSQL will install all 32-bit components.
