In order to address several issues identified since our last Point
Releases, we have just released the following new versions of PostgreSQL:
7.3.11, 7.4.9 and 8.0.4.

A few of the more prominent fixes across all three versions are:

- Fix error that allowed "VACUUM" to remove ctid chains too soon
- Fix missing rows in queries like UPDATE a=... WHERE a... with GiST
index on column a
- Improve checking for partially-written WAL pages
- Various memory leakage fixes

For a complete list of fixes in each release, please see the HISTORY

Source downloads are available at the following URLs:

Linux/Windows Binaries for 8.0.4 are available via:

These Point Releases do not require a dump/reload from the previous
Point, but *may* require one if upgrading from an earlier version. Please
see the Release Notes to confirm procedures for upgrading if your current
version is older then 1 Point Release.
