After a couple of months of testing, and alot of bug reports (with fixes), we are pleased to announce the first Release Candidate of PostgreSQL 8.1.0.
As with all pre-releases, but especially now that we are in the final stretch, testing is paramount to a successful, and bug free, release. As such, we ask everyone able who is able to do so to, to run RC1 through its paces and report any bugs to us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
At this time, our plans for full release are the week of November 7th, but this depends on the success of this Release Candidate.
