PostgreSQL 7.3 – it works

I’ve installed the new release of my favourite database, PostgreSQL today and I can happily announce that the upgrade from 7.2.3 went without any problems (a strange thing to announce when having my luk with software in mind ;-).

I’ve not yet had the time to check out all the wonderful new features (Schemas, Domains, a very extended ALTER TABLE and much more), but I will try it somewhere this week.

What I’ve noticed during the update: The current Webmin-Module (1.030) for administering Postgres’ users does not work with the current format of pg_hba.conf but editing the file by hand is quite straightforward – more so because of the very extensive comments in the file.
