psycopg2 is a PostgreSQL database adapter for the Python programming language. It is an almost complete rewrite of psycopg. It still supports all the features of psycopg but add real adaptation for Python to PostgreSQL type conversions, asynchronous queries, support for the Python built-in datetime module and the new (Python 2.4) Decimal type. Its main advantages are that it supports the full Python DBAPI 2.0 and it is thread safe at level 2. It was designed for heavily multi-threaded applications that create and destroy lots of cursors and make a conspicuous number of concurrent INSERTs or UPDATEs. The psycopg distribution includes ZPsycopgDA, a Zope Database Adapter.
