Now Bruce! The automatic type coersion features are a pretty big change,
especially for the casual user; the columns in queries get matched up
and converted without any explicit work from the user. I can give Tatsuo
some examples if he would like. I'll bet there are a few other changes
which would give readers a good idea about the ongoing support and
improvements to Postgres...
Speaking of docs, we'll have SQL and utility commands in an
html/hardcopy reference manual. Hmm, may not be as exciting for Japanese
readers, but... :)
I've been updating the old release notes in the sgml sources, and have
