Unfortunately (IMO) PG seems to follow something of a trend in OSS of 
announcing a release but not saying what has changed in that announcement 
(or even pointing to a URL which lists the changes). OK, so I'm sitting 
here on a DSL line and can download 7.3.3 (maybe 3-4 minutes), un-pack it 
and look at the history file then either install or ignore the release as 
I see fit. I'm one of the lucky ones. Many people are not so lucky and 
have to download on a metred 56K dial-up line - probably taking something 
like 1.5 hours. Don't these people deserve some consideration? How much 
effort would it take to provide a bullet list of changes since the last 
release externally to the download? Not a lot IMHO. Come on guys, you've 
got a great product, with generally good documentation, why let yourselves 
down on this point?
