    XML data type

  * Arrays of composite types
  * Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) data type
  * Add control over whether NULLs sort first or last
  * Updatable cursors
  * Server configuration parameters can now be set on a per-function
  * User-defined types can now have type modifiers
  * Automatically re-plan cached queries when table definitions change
    or statistics are updated
  * Numerous improvements in logging and statistics collection
  * Support Security Service Provider Interface (SSPI) for
    authentication on Windows
  * Support multiple concurrent autovacuum processes, and other
    autovacuum improvements
  * Allow the whole PostgreSQL distribution to be compiled with
    Microsoft Visual C++
