Following the release of PostgreSQL 8.3 later this year, PostgreSQL
8.1.x and 8.0.x will cease to be officially supported on Windows. This
means that no further binary releases will be produced, and no Windows
specific bug fixes will be applied. Users of PostgreSQL 8.0 and 8.1 on
Windows should begin planning an upgrade to version 8.2 or 8.3 soon.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group regrets the necessity of
dropping support for these releases. PostgreSQL 8.0 was the first
release to natively support Windows, and since then a number of
potentially serious issues have been fixed in later releases that are
simply not technically practical to back port. PostgreSQL 8.2 and above
are considered mature and will enjoy the same lifetime on Windows as on
all other platforms.
