## Major New Feature in pgRouting 2.0

pgRouting extends the PostGIS/PostgreSQL geospatial database to provide 
geospatial routing and other network analysis functionality.

This library contains following features:

* All Pairs Shortest Path, Johnson’s Algorithm **NEW**
* All Pairs Shortest Path, Floyd-Warshall Algorithm **NEW**
* Shortest Path A*
* Bi-directional Dijkstra Shortest Path **NEW**
* Bi-directional A* Shortest Path **NEW**
* Shortest Path Dijkstra
* Driving Distance
* K-Shortest Path, Multiple Alternative Paths **NEW**
* K-Dijkstra, One to Many Shortest Path **NEW**
* Traveling Sales Person **NEW Implementation**
* Turn Restriction Shortest Path (TRSP) **NEW**
* New functions for creating routing topology
* New functions for analyzing a graph for problems

## Migration Guide

pgRouting 2.0 is **not** backwards compatible with the 1.x version. This 
is a significant overhaul of the whole pgRouting environment and we have 
renamed all the functions and rationalized the arguments and return 
types. While this will be a painful migration for 1.x applications, we 
believe the new functionality, the high quality of the code, and new 
documentation will make it much easier to grow the product and support 
it over future releases.

We would like to call out special thanks to CSIS (University of Tokyo), 
Georepublic, Paragon Corporation, iMaptools.com and to Vicky Vergara for 
their time and support that really made this release possible. We also 
had a lot of support from our users testing releases, submitting
