PGroonga 1.1.9 has been released!


### About PGroonga


PGroonga is a PostgreSQL extension that makes PostgreSQL
fast full text search platform for all languages!
It's released under PostgreSQL license.

There are some PostgreSQL extensions that improves full text
search feature of PostgreSQL such as pg_trgm(*1).

pg_trgm doesn't support languages that use non-alphanumerics
characters such as Japanese and Chinese.

PGroonga supports all languages, provides rich full text
search related features and is very fast. Because PGroonga
uses Groonga(*2) that is a full-fledged full text search
engine as backend.

See the following benchmark results for performance:

  * Benchmark result for PGroonga, textsearch and pg_trgm with English Wikipedia
  * Benchmark result for PGroonga and pg_bigm with Japanese Wikipedia

PGroonga also supports JSON search. You can use each value
for condition. You can also perform full text search against
all texts in JSON. No other extension such as JsQuery(*3)
doesn't provide full text search feature against JSON.

### Usage

You can use PGroonga without full text search knowledge. You
just create an index and puts a condition into WHERE:

  CREATE INDEX index_name ON table USING pgroonga (column);

  SELECT * FROM table WHERE column @@ 'PostgreSQL';

You can also use LIKE to use PGroonga. PGroonga provides a
feature that performs LIKE with index. LIKE with PGroonga
index is faster than LIKE without index. It means that you
can improve performance without changing your application
that uses the following SQL:

  SELECT * FROM table WHERE column LIKE '%PostgreSQL%';
