Josh,

We're looking for things actually in 8.2, according to Bruce's release

there have been various adjustments, there might be even more then 20%.

For the main part:
- Major tsearch2 improvements (Oleg, Teodor):multibyte encoding support
(including UTF8)
tsearch2 supporting UTF-8 is really helpfull for multilanguage applications!

those sql2003 functions: Add new aggregate functions from SQL2003 (Neil)
-> that improves the sql2003 compliance even further, doesn't it?

what I did not find on that list: wasn't there a patch by Magnus which
allows to start postgres as an administrator on win32, with privilege
dropping on start? That will be a real helper for many win32 users ->
PostgreSQL enters the ACCESS market
