reordering outer joins

* New FILLFACTOR support for tables and indexes
* Monitoring, logging, and performance tuning additions
* More control over creating and dropping objects
* Table inheritance relationships can be defined for and removed
from pre-existing tables

aggregates and SQL:2003 statistical functions

Hi,

We need to update http://www.postgresql.org/docs/whatsnew today,
before8.2 will be officially released.

Is there someone on this list who can quickly prepare a text for this?
You can use
http://pgfoundry.org/docman/view.php/1000047/233/release82.zip

for this.
