Morning all ...

	Just a quick announcement that 7.3Beta2 is now up and available
for download.

	This beta requires a dump/reload from the pervious one, as several
of the fixes touch on the system catalogs.

	Changes include, but are not restricted to:

	- Change default privileges for languages and functions to be
	  PUBLIC USAGE and PUBLIC EXECUTE, respectively.

	- Add missing correction of sublevelsup when pulling up a
	  subquery.

	- in HeapTupleSelfUpdated case, executor should not return the
	  tuple as successfully marked, because in fact it's been deleted.

	- Disallow VACUUM, ANALYZE, TRUNCATE on temp tables belonging to
	  other backends.

	- Get rid of bogus use of heap_mark4update in reindex operations

	- In UpdateStats(), don't bother to update the pg_class row if it
	  already contains the correct statistics.

	- RelationClearRelation must reset rd_targblock and update
	  rd_nblocks even when dealing with a nailed-in-cache relation

	- Replace pg_attribute.attisinherited with attislocal and
	  attinhcount columns, to allow more correct behavior in
	  multiple-inheritance cases.

	- Bring SIMILAR TO and SUBSTRING into some semblance of
	  conformance with the SQL99 standard.

	- Move most of the error checking for foreign-key constraints out
	  of parse analysis and into the execution code

	- Provide an upgrade strategy for dump files containing functions
	  declared with OPAQUE.

	- Fix PPC s_lock operations to work correctly on multi-CPU
	  machines.

	- Introduce a well-defined promotion hierarchy for
	  numeric datatypes

	- and many many more changes ...

	We ask everyone that can to download and test this new beta, and
report any bugs to pgsql-bugs(at)postgresql(dot)org ...

	Downloads are available through any PostgreSQL FTP Mirror site.

Thanks ...
