It's approaching wordiness, but it still has my vote (minus the typo). If I'm
in the minority on this one, however, my second choice has us using two

    The PostgreSQL Global Development Team is proud to announce the release of
    PostgreSQL 9.0. This is the 31st release of the world's leading open
    source relational database system.
