Subject: [ANNOUNCE] PostgreSQL 8.3.4, 8.2.10, etc. Update Release

Updates for all maintained versions of PostgreSQL are available today:
8.3.4, 8.2.10, 8.1.14, 8.0.18 and 7.4.22. These releases fix more
than thirty minor issues reported and patched over the last three
months. As some of these issues carry a risk of data loss,
administrators of production applications should upgrade in their next
possible scheduled downtime.

Additionally, this minor release also contains updates for the
following timezones to support changes in local laws: Argentina,
Bahamas, Brazil, Mauritius, Morocco, Pakistan, Palestine, and
Paraguay. Users in these timezones should plan to upgrade as soon as
possible to avoid improper calculation of daylight savings time.

Issues fixed include autovacuum crashes reported by several users, two
Heap Only Tuple bugs, a foreign key failure condition, a too-small
lock address space, two Write Ahead Log bugs, several planner
mistakes, and numerous "corner condition" bugs. See the release notes
for more details.

As with other minor releases, users are not required to dump and
reload their database in order to apply this update release; you may
simply shut down PostgreSQL and update its binaries. Users skipping
more than one update may need to check the release notes for extra,
post-update steps. As previously announced, only versions 8.2.10 and
8.3.4 of the Windows binaries are being released, as we no longer
support 8.0 and 8.1 on Windows.
