The Elephant doesn't forget.
To paraphrase Dobzhansky:
Nothing in Intelligent Design makes sense except in the light of Creationism (original quote)
(The above paraphrase-quote was to go with a previous picture showing that evolutiondisbelief in the United States is almost as widespread as it is in Turkey (which I found astonishing) -- see fig. 2 in: this article)
Latest version is 13.4: PostgreSQL 13.4 Released 12th August 2021

Development is done during so-called commitfests (a month-long period of committing patches in burst-mode
Development patches are semi-automatically tested in Patch Tester (to play with patches: go get them there: there are links to the main mailing list, pgsql-hackers, where devs submit patches for scrutiny - there is a github repo but no pull-request-development )
Waiting for ... (depesz.com) new features committed in PostgreSQL git master (=xxdevel)
(Of course you can also just read the commit log)
http://www.db-fiddle.com A nice tool to experiment with different flavours of SQL.

PostgreSQL has stored procedures in several languages. One of those languages is Perl.
See the fine manual.
I've been doing Perl on and off for more than 20 years. Working structured and using strict makes Perl lose some of that uncanny ability to understand intention, but it is still easily the best language there is.
Somebody had to say it. ;)
