I know that this would be completely out of the norm. However, would it
be worth considering having a mid cycle release for 8.3?
Basically the release would focus on:
We would release in June?
Interesting idea but we already have one of the fastest release cycles
of all database systems and some people would like to see a larger cycle.
I really don't care about other database systems. I care about
postgresql :). That is also why I wanted to limit the features set
In addition to that this plan might hold back some people from upgrading
to 8.2 which solves quite a few critical issues with features we
marketed/introduced during the past 8.x cycles and are really getting
polished and usable now (partitioning,pitr,...) and 8.2 gives quite a
nice performance boost for a lot of workloads too.
I frankly won't see many people migrate to 8.2. Most of my customers
will wait for 8.3 anyway. (except new business of course).
