== PostgreSQL Weekly News - September 7th 2004 ==

 Certainly some of you have downloaded the new beta2 package, since we've 
already had several bug reports and fixes come through on the new package. If 
you haven't though, please grab a copy, it should be available at a mirror 
close to you. 

 So what was fixed in the past week you ask? Some issues with lstat on win32 
were fixed. Several issues related to the backend mistakenly assuming a 
relation would be open by sgmr were fixed. Sequences were modified to ensure 
that they are always created in the databases default tablespace, rather than 
in a schema's default tablespace should it differ. Several bits of the GUC 
mechanism were cleaned up, eliminating some errors with incorrect GUC 
assignment and reducing some of the code clutter that had crept in. Some code 
was added to match the timezone name on localized Windows systems. The 
Wisconson benchmark in src/test/bench was repaired to make sure it works 
against the current code. The prettyprinting rules for UNION, INTERSECT, and 
EXCEPT constructs was tweaked. Some issues in error code promotion were 
worked out. Transaction control statements are now specifically disallowed in 
SQL functions. Finally, some issues with statement_timeout and deadlock 
detection not working on win32 were corrected. 

 We also saw a little bit more code added in to address a couple of items. 
Support for s_lock for HPUX on IA64 was added, along with a couple of other 
HPUX specific fixes and an update to the HPUX FAQ, thanks to Shinji 
Teragaito. The contrib module dbsize was fully brought up to speed with 
tablespaces, adding several new functions to test things like tablespace 
size. Last, the log_filename_prefix was replaced with a more general 
log_filename parameter to allow the DBA to choose the form in which log 
filenames reflect current time.
