  • Multiple documentation updates
  • Apply translation updates
  • Fixes to transaction log and replication issues with SP-GiST
  • Replace libpq's "row processor" API with a "single row" mode.
  • Fix WITH issue with set operations (UNION/INTERSECT/EXCEPT)
  • Improvements to Autovacuum cancellation
  • Multiple pg_upgrade fixes
  • Fix memory leak in pg_recievexlog
  • Restore statistics collection broken by change to bgwriter
  • Prevent corner-case coredump with rfree().

If you previously tested 9.2 beta and found one or more bugs, please test 9.2 beta 3 and make sure that those issues are resolved. If you haven't yet tested 9.2, please help out the PostgreSQL project by testing it now! More information on how to test and report issues is on the Beta Page.
