Here's my stab, written before I read any further responses:
 
> P1: announce landmark 8.0 version, 200 developers, etc.  4-5 lines, starting
> with a sentence that covers who-what-when.
 
The PostgreSQL Global Development Group is pleased to announce the release
of version 8.0 of PostgreSQL, a powerful, full-featured RDMS (relation database
management system). Hundreds of people from around the world joined
together to produce a powerful new version which can more than match many
commercial databases.
 
> P2: major features, windows port, contributions by several new companies,
> work with OSDL.  4-5 lines, again.
 
Many companies have already recognized the potential of PostgreSQL and
have sponsored development of the new features such as replication and
point-in-time recovery. In addition, 8.0 is the first release with native
support for Windows, which means that PostgreSQL can be deployed across
every platform in your company.
 
I'll work off the existing draft for the rest of it...
