PostgreSQL Beta4 Tag'd and Bundle'd ...

P: n/a

Well folks, we are now coming into the home stretch of another long
development cycle, and its time for more vigorous and extensive testing
....

Last night, we bundled up Beta4, which is the first one that we've
officially announced "publicly", with the other 3 having been only
announced on -hackers ...

This release, depending on the bug reports received, will most likely flow
into our first Release Candidate by end of next week, so we encourage
every(and any)one that can to download and test her, so that our first
Release Candidate can be as clean as possible ...

As we did the bundling last night, most mirrors should already have a copy
of it available under /pub/source/v7.4 ...

We've also started to bundle up bzip2, along with the .gz files, for those
that wish to download those ... with appropriate md5 files ...

No. Native Windows support isn't going to happen in 7.4. Work on that is
continuing however.

As has been mentioned *several* times already, v7.4 will *not* have Win32
support in it.

Unless you are one the core developers of Postgresql it's pretty hard to
keep up with what is "really" going on with this product.

This link clearly states that it's going to be in 7.5
http://techdocs.postgresql.org/guides/Windows

This is where you can download the latest builds.
http://developer.postgresql.org/beta.php

This is where you can download the source, but for the windows stuff you
need to download the 7.4 stuff and then the stuff tagged as WIN32_DEV (I
think)
(Makes me think that Windows support might be in 7.4)
http://developer.postgresql.org/cvsw.../pgsql-server/

Then there is a website of Bruce Momjian (can't remember the link) that
gives you the status of the Windows port.

Then there is a hidden newsgroup for win32 development (can't see it in a
newreader).

So, that is why I asked the question because lots of things about Postgresql
are in many different places and it becomes difficult (from the main
website) to find things.

I want to help Postgresql just as much as the next person, so cut us some
slack and encourage help instead of discourage it.

Thanks

There isn't one place that you can goto to find out the information that you
need.

That is the only way to keep up with what's going on. But you must be willing
to take the e-mail volume that that entails. Or use the archive web
interface. But -hackers is the place, and has been since the beginning.

I still think the Website should be the point of contact for potential user

important information that an end user my what or need to know.

Or sign up for -announce and read the weekly news, which gives a summary
of each weeks developments* and updates some other ancillary information
about the project.

* save last week, which seems to have gotten lost in virtual space, but
come Wednesday their will be an update.

Part of the problem is that there are so many things happening, we don't
know how to report it.

From time to time you can read PostgreSQL Weekly News (last one is dated Sep
4) on Linux Today. What about placing these (if they continue) on the web
site ?

I hope to get the weekly news's on the website at some point, but we're
spread so far thin no one has had the time to make it happen. :-\

I've not been able to get into a strong habit of submitting them there
since I've noticed they do not always show up when submitted. Hopefully
this weeks will go through...

Maybe you could also publish them as email. I do think that one reason Apache
is staying on top is the weekly Apache newsletter.
