Now we are moving closer to 8.4, please join us for testing 8.4 release.

I just released new RPM sets, which is based on Dec 29 2008 CVS
snapshot, which includes Window Functions patch. Please note that these
packages are **not** production ready. They are for Fedora 9 and
RHEL/CentOS 5. I have no intention to push 8.4 development packages for
older Fedora/RHEL/CentOS releases, and also currently I do not provide
(Open)SuSE packages.

These packages *do* require a dump/reload, even from previous 8.4
packages, because of a catversion update.

We have more than 700 people who downloaded these sets. We need more
people discover any bugs in 8.4 development version.

As usual, please find detailed info from:

A mini howto about 8.4devel release + RPMs is here:

The tarball I used is here:

(I will remove tarballs after a few weeks...)

Please report any packaging related errors to me. If you find any
PostgreSQL 8.4 bugs, please post them to pgsql-bugs(at)PostgreSQL(dot)org or
fill out this form:
