Tonight, we officially release v6.5.2 for those that have been
experiencing problems with either v6.5 or v6.5.1.  I've created two
patches, one from 6.5->6.5.1 and one from 6.5.1->6.5.2 ... please let me
know if there are any problems with them...

Vince, can you please make links for the patches as well as the release
itself?

Any problems, as always, please report them to pgsql-bugs(at)postgresql(dot)org

==========

       This is basically a cleanup release for 6.5.1.  We have fixed a
       variety of problems reported by 6.5.1 users.

Migration to v6.5.2

       A dump/restore is not required for those running 6.5 or 6.5.1.
