Yes, the "do people care" filter is what I usually use. When new functionality is added, we usually mention it because someone usually care, but for performance, the threshold is usually whether workloads, even rare ones, would have a visible performance change. It is difficult to determine this from the release notes, which is why I always need feedback on these items. -- Bruce Momjian <br...@momjian.us> http://momjian.us EnterpriseDB http://enterprisedb.com + As you are, so once was I.
