== PostgreSQL Weekly News - November 15th 2004 ==

 This week was fairly quiet as folks prepared for a beta5 offering, which you 
can expect early this week. Unless something suprising comes up, beta5 will 
probably be the last of the beta releases before an official "release 
candidate" is put out, so keep a close eye on things and get ready to test 
any applications you haven't already tested. 

 Given the slow week, we have only a handful of changes to report this week.  
Probably the biggest change was that the GUC Userlimit variable category was 
removed, changing the affected variables to plain SUSET instead. The planner 
was changed to now fold "stable" functions to constants when forming 
selectivity estimates. The postmaster startup process was smartened up to 
better detect when it is safe to restart after boot. Initial support for 
localization of the windows installer was committed, with a partial 
translation into German having already been done. And, last but not least, 
the documentation on the overall filesystem layout used by PostgreSQL was 
beefed up.
