== 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
