  Welcome PostgreSQL 8.4
  After many years of development, PostgreSQL has become feature-complete in many areas.
  This release shows a targeted approach to adding features (e.g., authentication,
  monitoring, space reuse), and adds capabilities defined in the later SQL standards.
  The major areas of enhancement are:
  Windowing Functions
  Common Table Expressions and Recursive Queries
  Default and variadic parameters for functions
  Parallel Restore
  Column Permissions
  Per-database locale settings
  Improved hash indexes
  Improved join performance for EXISTS and NOT EXISTS queries
  Easier-to-use Warm Standby
  Automatic sizing of the Free Space Map
  Visibility Map (greatly reduces vacuum overhead for slowly-changing tables)
  Version-aware psql (backslash commands work against older servers)
  Support SSL certificates for user authentication
  Per-function runtime statistics
  Easy editing of functions in psql
  New contrib modules: pg_stat_statements, auto_explain, citext, btree_gin
