The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has made PostgreSQL version 7.1 available for download from the web site and mirror sites. Key new features of the 7.1 release include: the write-ahead log (WAL), which increases data integrity and processing speed because only one modified log file must be flushed to disk; rows of any length, via the oversized attribute storage technique (TOAST); support for SQL92 outer joins; 64-bit C function manager support; and improved support and speed for complex queries.
