Sorry if this is the wrong place for this but as far as I can tell there are only 2 features so far that I've seen discussed on hackers that are looking really good to me. I'm sure all the little changes will add up to a big win but these are the only two that would make me feel an urgent need to go through the hassle of upgrading.

1) Standby mode
2) Improvements to PITR making it easier to set up.

If I could have asked for any two features to be implemented in postgres it would probably have been these two, so I am very curious. Are these two features definitely in, definitely out or still up in the air as far as 8.2 in concerned?

Hum, haven't we seen a lot of performance improvements committed?  I'd
say 8.2 is performance + usability :-) It's true that we don't have as
many "major features" in 8.2 as compared to 8.1 or 8.0.
