October 17 2015 - v1.5

Version 1.5 of pgFormatter, a free a SQL formatter/beautifier dedicated to standard SQL and PostgreSQL specifics keywords, has been officially released and is publicly available for download.

This release fixes several issues and adds support to new keywords added in PostgreSQL 9.5. There's also a major code rewrite by Hubert depesz Lubaczewski, pg_format works as previously - handles both CGI and CLI interface, but you can get directly to whatever functionality you want by using pgFormatter::* modules.

New beautified keywords are: BERNOULLI, CUBE, GROUPING SETS, SKIP LOCKED, LOGGED, POLICY, ROLLUP, TABLESAMPLE. And new functions are: jsonb_pretty, jsonb_set, pg_last_committed_xact, pg_xact_commit_timestamp.

There is also a useful hint added to documentation to be able to format you SQL code from vi by adding a simple line to .vimrc. This hint is taken from David Fetter's blog.

For the complete list of changes see the changelog.
