== PostgreSQL Weekly News - Jan 1st 2003 ==

Light activity over the holidays, but one important change that is easy to do 
on existing servers is the change in default free space map settings for all 
future versions.  To make this change on an existing server, simply change 
max_fsm_relations to 1000 in your postgresql.conf (not needed if your already set more than this) and 
restart your server. This requires a little bit more memory consumption, but 
the benefits in server maintenance are worth it.  The change is mostly due to 
Philip Warner's research, if you want more details there is good information 
archived in the mailing lists.
