More may (will) come later. I want to thank every package builder for
this great number of supported platforms. Support for Red Hat 9, RHEL
2.1 and Fedora Core 1 and 3 was abandoned . Fedora Core 2 support will 
be abandoned in future releases. Please let us know if you can assist 
us in building RPMS of missing Red Hat / Fedora Core platforms. 

This release set contains a new package: compat-postgresql-libs. 
Fedora Core 5, Fedora Core 6, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux 5 ship with Any apps that are built against 
libpq need this, like php-pgsql, However, since PostgreSQL 8.2 ships with, users will need old libs in order not to break apps.

For example, if you are running PHP+PostgreSQL 8.1.X on FC6 and if you want to 
upgrade to PostgreSQL 8.2, you will need this package before upgrading to 8.2.

We are shipping with this new set. Please install compat-postgresql-libs 
before installing other packages.

For complete list of changes in RPM sets, please refer to the changelogs
in the RPMs. Use 
         rpm -q -changelog package_name
for querying the changelog.

previous release. Please see the Release Notes to confirm procedures for

We excluded PDF file for 8.2.0, but we will again include the PDF documentation
into the -docs RPMs for 8.2.1. 

The SRPMs are also provided. Please note that we have one SRPM for all

We also have a howto document about RPM installation of PostgreSQL:

Please follow the instructions before installing/upgrading.

Almost each RPM has been signed by the builder, and each directory

package builder and link to their PGP key.
