The next major release of Postgres is imminent, 9.0, but first a release 
candidate has come out today, and anyone who can should download and test it. 
Details in the forwarded email below.

(Also, coincidentally, a release candidate for Perl 5.12.2 has also come out 
today on CPAN and needs testing, this being a minor update.)

The first release candidate for PostgreSQL 9.0 is now available. Please

No changes in commands, interfaces or APIs are expected between this
release candidate and the final version. Applications which will deploy
