With all due respect to Alvaro et al, I can't imagine that that will make it into 7.4. (I have no confidence that PITR or Win32 native port will make it either...) > Do we have any "killer" features added to 7.4 that we can shout about? We have a lot of pretty good stuff. You're not happy that the performance of IN (subselect) has been fixed? That btree index bloat is fixed (at least in large part, it remains to be seen whether the field performance is all that we need...)? In my opinion the project is not at a state where whizzy new Features with a capital F are going to jump out of the woodwork. We are making good advances in performance, reliability, SQL spec compliance, and stuff like that, but fancy-sounding bullet points are hard to come by. I can tell you that Red Hat's CCM group (the former Ars Digita) is waiting with bated breath for 7.4, because it fixes a number of problems (IN-subselect being one) that prevent 7.3 from being a serious competitor to Oracle for their platform. 7.4 is a killer release for them, and has been since about February, and they're getting tired of waiting. I think a lot of other people are in the same situation, even though they may not know it ;-) We can't slip this puppy any more --- it's time to wrap her up and push her out. regards, tom lane ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 6: Have you searched our list archives? http://archives.postgresql.org
