I am preparing a presentation about postgresql for GoOpen2008 [1] in
Norway. I am trying to guess some of the 'main' new features we could
expect to see in the next versions of postgresql.

After reading different documents on Internet, I have this list which I
plan to include in my presentation. Does anyone disagree with it?  ;-)

* Auto-tuning / auto-configuration
* Easy update-in-place - 'pgmigrator'
* More SQL99 and SQL2003 features
* Update-in-place optimizations which enhance OLTP performance
* Auto partitioning / Dynamic partitioning
* External tables interfaces (SQL/MED compliant)
* More exotic datatypes
* More query optimizer improvements
* Elimination of vacuum
* Improve XML support
* Pre-parsing phase that converts non-ISO syntax to supported syntax.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
