I think we should proceed as normal.

* This release /is/ significant. There are some really nice, powerful 
features that have been added. As Tom pointed out, some of these 
features are allowing people to consider replacing Oracle. We need 
to play these up, and not mention Windows, PITR, etc. We'll just have 
to make statement-level triggers and improved handling of "IN" 
sexy somehow. :)

* For PostgreSQL, any press is good press. :)

* We should consider this a test run for the upcoming Windows release. 
Let's get all the bugs out now, and make the next release announcement 
(hopefully "next" = "windows" ;) a smooth process.

As such, I'd like to see a centralized list of places to send the news 
to. Just in case we don't have such a list, let me start one:

Main website
Advocacy website
Techdocs website
Slashdot
Linux Magazine
Linux.com
Newsforge
Database Journal
Internetnews.com
Linux Journal
itworld.com/itnews.com

There are probably more. Ideally, I'd like to put all this into a database, 
with contact information, track who submitted what and when, what articles 
they ran, etc. I'll whip something up if there is an interest.
