Waiting for 9.0 – Final Post ?

As of now, I am happy user of 9.1devel version of PostgreSQL:

=$ psql -c 'select version()'
 PostgreSQL 9.1devel ON x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, compiled BY GCC gcc-4.4.real (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) 4.4.3, 64-bit
(1 ROW)

So, I guess no new features will make it to 9.0 – after all, 9.0 is currently already beta3.

If you want to get list of what I wrote about for 8.5/9.0 – just check the tag page.

# SELECT version();
 PostgreSQL 8.4beta1 ON i686-pc-linux-gnu, compiled BY GCC gcc (GCC) 4.2.4 (Ubuntu 4.2.4-1ubuntu3), 32-bit
(1 ROW)

Since I don't expect any new features in beta and release candidate stages, let me put some short summary.
