**# pgAdmin3 LTS by BigSQL README #** This is a fork of the pgAdmin3 project that aims to continue to support PostgreSQL 8.4 thru 9.6 with Windows and OSX Binaries. We are in basic maintenance mode and don't expect to be adding major new features. We expect that over time users will mostly migrate to using pgAdmin4 Web as that matures and stabilizes. Introduction ------------ pgAdmin3 is a popular and feature rich Open Source administration and development platform for PostgreSQL, the most advanced Open Source database in the world. Binaries for the application are presently produced on Windows & OSX to manage PostgreSQL 8.4 and above. pgAdmin3 is designed to answer the needs of all users, from writing simple SQL queries to developing complex databases. The graphical interface supports all PostgreSQL features and makes administration easy. The application also includes a syntax highlighting SQL editor, a server-side code editor, an SQL/batch/shell job scheduling agent, support for the Slony-I replication engine and much more. Server connection may be made using TCP/IP or Unix Domain Sockets (on *nix platforms), and may be SSL encrypted for security. No additional drivers are required to communicate with the database server. pgAdmin3 is Free Software released under the PostgreSQL License.
