== PostgreSQL Weekly News - October 11th 2004 ==

Another week closer to the 8.0 release, we still had a good number of problem
reports come in this past week. We're probably still a bit away from another
beta release; remember you can always check the progress of beta at

Especially important is the number of win32 fixes we had, showing a good
number of folks helping test this new release. Several unused Win32 defines
were converted to typdefs. The plpython function language can now build on
Win32. Win32 SSL builds were fixed. Tablespaces on Cygwin installs were
fixed. Finally we now test on unix domain sockets before setting default
authentication to allow connections from them.

More general fixes this week include escaping single quotes and backslashes
used in locales placed in postgresql.conf, tightening some cases where
PostgreSQL accepted invalid CIDR values, sorting out some problems with SQL
function returning rowtypes that have dropped columns, including schema names
in pg_restore -l output, and fixing the pg_indexes view to show the index's
tablespace rather than the parent table's tablespace.

One final announcement for anyone using CVS; we just completed some house
cleaning that will require folks to do a fresh checkout before they can
continue updating. For more information, please see the official announcement
at http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-announce/2004-10/msg00006.php
