Psycopg 2.5.4 has been released. You can get it from:

This version supports the new jsonb PostgreSQL type out-of-the-box. And of course there are a few bug fixed:

  • Added jsonb support for PostgreSQL 9.4 (ticket #226).
  • Fixed segfault if COPY statements are passed to execute() instead of using the proper methods (ticket #219).
  • Force conversion of pool arguments to integer to avoid potentially unbounded pools (ticket #220).
  • Cursors WITH HOLD don't begin a new transaction upon move/fetch/close (ticket #228).
  • Cursors WITH HOLD can be used in autocommit (ticket #229).
  • callproc() doesn't silently ignore an argument without a length.
  • Fixed memory leak with large objects (ticket #256).
  • The internal module can be imported stand-alone (to allow modules juggling such as the one described in ticket #201).

Have a good weekend!
