A quick glance at the TODO list shows a number of speed improvements in
specific areas (IN, GROUP BY, Subselects in views), ARRAY improvements,
some utility command improvements / additions, and a significant
protocol update.

The protocol update may not be flashy, but it is a large step forward in
presenting a clean experience for developers using PostgreSQL (reduces
chance of rare, unexpected, and difficult to find logic errors).

If nothing else, it makes for an excellent cleanup release that rounds
off some of the sharp corners (tab completion for schema elements in
psql, schema dump in psql, fixed cluster support, transactional
truncate, alter sequence, new regex code for fast MultiByte, etc).
