PostgreSQL 8.3 Beta Has Dropped

After many long months in feature freeze, PostgreSQL has finally [ released a beta for 8.3]. This release contains a large number of new features at some significant performance improvements as well. I’m hoping to see a large amount of testing with 3rd party languages (PHP, Ruby, Python, etc…) as well as software packages to help flush out bugs/issues while things are still in beta. If you contribute to such tools, please help out and take a stab at testing, and if you need a place to publish your results, feel free to contact me and I’ll do what I can to help.
