Testing the new installer

Dave has put up a snapshot of the new 8.3 installer on the pgFoundry page. This contains a whole lot of things for Windows users to test:

  • Several new features and fixes for the installer, such as autodetection of locales and better handling of existing data directories.
  • 8.3 development snapshot built with MSVC instead of mingw
  • New pginstaller built with MSVC instead of mingw
  • New stackbuilder system for handling add-ons
  • New versions of most bundled apps and drivers

So if you're a windows user, and want to test things, please download this file and let us know (through the mailinglists!) how it works out for you.

NOTE! This is a pre-beta development snapshot of both the server and the installer. DO NOT USE IN PRODUCTION!
