== PostgreSQL Weekly News - May 21 2006 ==

Security upgrades 8.1.4, 8.0.8, 7.4.13 and 7.3.15 will be out soon.
Get ready to upgrade, ASAP!

There were discussions about improving string manipulation, adding
shared memory for add-ins, and a continuing discussion about using
compression to improve on-disk sorts.

Alvaro Herrera committed two patches to autovacuum. The first makes
a running autovacuum appear in the pg_stat_activity view, including
the actual table it is currently working on. The other, from Larry
Rosenman, adds four columns to the pg_stat_*_tables views, exposing
the time at which vacuum and analyze were run for each table. You can
see whether the VACUUM was issued manually VACUUMs or via AUTOVACUUM.
