== PostgreSQL Weekly News - March 29th 2004 ==
        While there was some subversive discussion about source control 
programs arching through the mailing lists this week, those with an eye on 
the CVS repository noticed several interesting changes come down the pike. 
While not a long list, many were user noticeable and will certainly have an 
impact on users once 7.5 is released.
        First up was the replacement of the virtual_host and tcpip_socket 
GUC's with a unified listen_addresses parameter in postgresql.conf. The 
default behavior was also switched to now listen on localhost, eliminating 
the need for the -i postmaster switch in many scenarios. The max_expr_depth 
parameter was replaced with a max_stack_depth parameter that is measured in 
kilobytes and checked against actual physical execution stack depth. This 
implementation gives us an even more bulletproof defense against runaway 
recursive functions. The "Alter Table Set Without OIDS" command was removed 
in favor of making "Alter Table Drop Column" able to handle OID columns. This 
fixes problems with removing OID columns that have dependencies or that were 
inherited from a parent. Updated code for SSL and Kerberos, which should make 
both thread safe, was contributed by Manfred Spraul.
        In other news, the PostgreSQL's global community got a little bit 
bigger this week as we saw the addition of a Polish Language mailing list 
available at pgsql(at)foo-baz(dot)com(dot) The French Community has also moved to a new 
website, it is now available at  One last note, 
the web team completed the re-import of the techdocs html/php code into CVS 
this past week.  If you are interested in helping out with techdocs 
development please visit us at the pgweb project on GBorg.
