Postgres 8.3 is out

Postgres 8.3 is out and it contains plenty of new and improved features. Some of my favorites are: sql/xml support, text search, autovacuum improvements, performance improvements (significant) and some additional SQL changes. You can read the press release. You can also check out the feature list or review the simpler feature matrix which compares all of the versions since 7.4. You may also want to read the release notes. You can read about the release in the press by following along with the discussion at postgresql.org.
