Heikki Linnakangas and Tom Lane have rewritten btree index scans to
work a page at a time in all cases.  In addition to from simplifying
and (sometimes) speeding up the indexscan code, this will allow us to
reimplement btbulkdelete as a largely sequential scan instead of
index-order traversal, significantly reducing the cost of VACUUM.

Larry Rosenman of Pervasive has submitted a patch for CVS TIP which
adds four new timestamp fields to the pg_stat_all_tables view:
last_vacuum, last_autovacuum, last_analyze and last_autoanalyze.  This
will make it easier for people and tools to track "table maintenance"
actions.

Teodor Sigaev added Generalized Inverted Indexes (GIN) to CVS TIP.
This will help with the upcoming tsearch3, among other things.
