In CVS TIP:

    Greg Stark added a feature called INCLUDING CONSTRAINTS to CREATE
    TABLE LIKE.

    Christopher Kings-Lynne added a PQescapeIdentifier() function to
    libpq.

    Tom Lane changed the ROW() constructor syntax so that list
    elements foo.* get expanded to a list of their member fields
    rather than creating a nested rowtype field as before.  The old
    behavior is still available by omitting '.*'.  You can now check
    thing like "IF ROW(NEW.*) IS DISTINCT FROM ROW(OLD.*)" in a
    trigger or rule.

    Teodor Sigaev changed the split algorithm for GiST per his
    earlier proposal.

    Tom Lane removed the 'stats buffer' process, letting backend stats
    messages be delivered directly to the collector process.  This
    should result in a performance increase.
