== PostgreSQL Weekly News - October 18th 2004 ==

 Enough progress this week to start up rumbling of a RC release. I'd suspect 
that its still a week or more away, and possibly even another beta away, but 
it is still a good sign that we are getting closer to release, with the main 
sticking points now circling on tablespaces and win32.

 Being so close to crunch time, this weeks fixes were more wide than deep. 
Some problems with Cygwin and DLLINIT were resolved. Static lib builds on 
Win32 and Cygwin are now enabled. The /contrib modules should now all compile 
cleanly for Cygwin. The getpid() function is now cast to int, resolving a 
problem some Solaris releases had returning long. 

 Some unnecessary void* casts when using pfree() in contrib/xml and 
contrib/xml2 were cleaned up. We now report the full path in error reports 
for version mismatch of binaries. Several more bugs and tweaks to plperl were 
committed. A bug in pg_get_indexdef() was fixed. You can now shut down the 
background writer by setting limit values to zero. PQprepare and 
PQsendPrepared functions were added to libpq to suport preparing of 
statements without specifying the datatypes of thier prarmeters.
