PostgreSQL 8.1 beta 2 is out.

The second beta version of PostgreSQL 8.1 is now available from the mirrors. All users are encouraged to download, test, and submit bug reports.  The more testing 8.1 gets, the faster it will be final and the more stable 8.1.0 will be.

Beta 2 includes a Win32 version, now that the Windows ipv6 bug is fixed. Windows users are especially encouraged to test 8.1, and submit bugs using our bug report form: http://www.postgresql.org/support/submitbug

Source downloads for all other platforms are available on the FTP mirrors: http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/source/v8.1beta/

Please see the release notes ( http://developer.postgresql.org/docs/postgres/release.html#RELEASE-8-1 ) for a listing of new features.  Testing of the new features is most critical, particularly testing them in combination.

Please note that Beta 2 will require an initdb from Beta 1 and all earlier builds.
