After a couple of pre-release tarballs, the PostgreSQL Developers are
proud to announce v7.0.3, our most stable release yet. 

There have been *several* fixes in this release, from v7.0.2, but, being a
minor release, there have been *no* changes that will require a
dump/restore to happen ... download the source, compile it and plug-n-play
...

Due to a last minute fix of a bug by Tom Lane that prevents a crash of the
backend, it is recommended that if you have downloaded one of the
pre-release 7.0.3 tarballs, you download this version and upgrade, to be
sure you have the fix.

If anyone has any problems, please report bugs to
pgsql-bugs(at)postgresql(dot)org, or submit a but through our handy web interface
available at http://www.postgresql.org ...
