Thanks to Tom Lane, we now have a list of documentation updates needed
Can people submit patches or comment on these so we can get this list
> Add SET FSYNC and SHOW PG_OPTIONS commands(Massimo)
Are any of these documented. We now have a sample file. Is that
> Add CmdTuples() to libpq++(Vince)
> New CREATE CONSTRAINT TRIGGER and SET CONSTRAINTS commands(Jan)
> First real FOREIGN KEY constraint trigger functionality (Jan)
> Add FOREIGN KEY ... MATCH FULL ... ON DELETE CASCADE (Jan)
> Add FOREIGN KEY ... MATCH referential actions (Don Baccus)
Nees more work.
> Allow WHERE restriction on ctid (physical heap location) (Hiroshi)
Not documented; not quite sure where to put it, either.
> Add ecpg EXEC SQL IFDEF, EXEC SQL IFNDEF, EXEC SQL ELSE, EXEC SQL ELIF
> and EXEC SQL ENDIF directives
> Add pg_ctl script to control backend startup (Tatsuo)
> Add postmaster.opts.default file to store startup flags (Tatsuo)
> and postmaster.pid file
In progress as part of pg_ctl.
> Updated user interfaces on initdb, initlocation, pg_dump, ipcclean (Peter E)
initlocation and pg_dump man pages still need to be updated; not sure
> Add ALTER TABLE ... ADD FOREIGN KEY (Stephan Szabo)
> Implement column aliases (aka correlation names) and more join syntax
> Allow queries like SELECT a FROM t1 tx (a) (Thomas)
> Allow queries like SELECT * FROM t1 NATURAL JOIN t2 (Thomas)
Not documented. Not sure we want to seeing as they are mostly disabled.
> New libpq functions PQsetClientEncoding(), PQclientEncoding() (Tatsuo)
Documented, but only in README.mb. Is that OK?
> New lztext data type for compressed text fields
Not documented. I think we want to document it, no?
> New C-routines to implement a BIT and BIT VARYING type in /contrib
> (Adriaan Joubert)
Not documented. New for 7.0.
> Make ISO date style (2000-02-16 09:33) the default (Thomas)
Updated set man page. Not sure where else this goes.
> Add NATIONAL CHAR [ VARYING ]
> Improved TRANSLATE() function
Only mentioned in Table 5-4, which hardly gives room to explain...
