PostgreSQL Community:

PostgreSQL version 8.2 beta is now available from  As 
always, we rely on the members of our community to give our betas the 
extra testing they need to uphold our reputation for stability and 
security.  More importantly, the more people we have beta testing on more 
platforms, the sooner the final release will be.

Particularly, we need the community's help in three areas:

1) Testing on unusual server platforms where we might not have complete 
automated testing coverage;

2) Testing by porting your own applications to the beta (though not in 
production, of course) to help test all features, including in 
combination, and relative performance against previous versions;

3) Testing some of the new features, such as GIN, warm standby, DTrace and 
online index builds to make sure that they work as advertised.

To download the beta, and read more about beta testing, please visit the 
beta page at:
