Its been almost 4 weeks since Beta4, and alot of work, involving alot of
bug fixes, and documentation improvements, to the source tree, we have
just released our 5th Beta of 8.0.0.

All of our major Open Items have now been completed, and we're slowly
entering the final stages, involving alot of testing and documentation
changes.

... to go from Beta -> Release, we need as many people out there to put it
through her paces as possible, on as many platforms as possible. We urge
anyone, and everyone, to download a copy and run her through her
regression tests, and report any/all problems, and bugs, to

pgsql-bugs(at)postgresql(dot)org

The more bugs we can find, and eliminate, during Beta, the more successful
the Release will be ...

Once more, on behalf of all of the developers, Happy Bug Hunting ...
