Feature freeze is looming large.  You can make sure that your favorite
feature gets in.

Teodor Sigaev has made GiST indexes are fully concurrent.

Magnus Hagander and Neil Conway have removed Kerberos 4 as it was
unused, and the protocol itself is no longer supported, in part due to
security issues.

PL/PgSQL can now do EXECUTE INTO.

Pavel Stehule added Oracle-style LEAST and GREATEST functions, which
are essentially row-wise versions of MAX and MIN.

The buildfarm will now send out a daily email digest of status
updates. For details on how to subscribe, see

Tom Lane added a new database created by default named postgres.

Alfranio Correia Junior has presented a patch that does ON COMMIT
triggers which is sure to be controversial.
