8.0 questions

Dear postgres community,

I would like to know what are the significant changes and new features
introduced in Postgres 8.0 which warranted the major version number
increment. From the postres website it is not very clear as I can only
find technical changelogs for the beta releases.

I think that if you look in the postgresql advocacy list archives, it
was first mentioned by Josh Berkus as to why the change to 8.0
