PostgreSQL Weekly News - January 29, 2003

[ Thanks to Robert Treat for this link. ]

== PostgreSQL Weekly News - Jan 29th 2003 == 

    A preliminary list of fixes is available for the 7.2.4 release. You
can view it in the mailing list archives at
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2003-01/msg00982.php    
Though not concrete, the current plan seems to be to release 7.2.4 this
week, and release a 7.3.2 next week. 

    On the 7.4 front, a lot of debate has taken place on the topic of
how best to integrate native windows support.  IPv6 support also seems
to have settled into an implementation that should work, though early
testers of these features are always welcome. Tom Lane also fixed a
remote problem in handling xlog segments.  He has also implemented two
new GUC variables that allow the query planner to collapse explicit
inner JOINS together rather than strictly following the syntax.  This
change is probably most helpful for people porting from database systems
where explicit ordering is not available. A fix from Oliver Elphick to
prevent possible core dumps in pg_dump was added in, as was a fix for
array subscript overruns (Yichen Xie).  
   
    One last note, a new item was added to the TODO list to allow group
object ownership so that groups can rename, drop, and grant on objects.
This will help push forward implementation of roles.
