Hi all,

I would be interested to know what the current status of curve support in
Postgis is?

I am aware that one can store circularstrings, compoundcurves and
curvepolygons. Are they fully supported regarding the geometry processing
operators and spatial relation operators or are there limitations?

Thank you for shedding some light on it. If the curve support is already
quite good, I would consider starting to experiment with curves.
