Updated: postgresql-8.1.4-2, postgresql-8.2.5-1 [EXPERIMENTAL]

postgresql 8.1.4-2 is promoted from test to current and
8.2.5-1 is added to test via the cygwin setup.exe
mirror network.

What's new:

Before you upgrade a postgresql package to a new new major or
minor version (7.4 => 8.0 => 8.1 => 8.2), be sure to dump all your data before!
With the new package you will not be able to access your old databases.
Minor subrelease updates (e.g. 8.0.4 to 8.0.7) can safely access the
same database.

Be sure to read the README.cygwin and the postgresql documentation.

I recommend to install the new 8.2 right away, available as [test]
version from setup. I use it successfully since Nov 2007.

I'll keep 8.1.4-2 a while as curr, and will update to 8.2.5-1 as curr
in about two weeks.
8.2.6 and 8.3.x don't compile out of the box, and I'm rather working on the new features of 8.3, and I do not trying to fix 8.2.6 or 8.2.7.

8.2.5-1 /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql has a minor bug in "initdb".
Comment out the line which does mkdir ${SOCKETDIR}
if you use this convenience script.

Please ask questions here at <>,
and only if you really have to, over at <>.


To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
