G'day ...

  This is just a quick announcement that v7.3.2 has been tag'd (REL7_3_2),
and released, to address several problems found with v7.3.1.  This release
addresses several overrun and memory leak issues that were found in recent
weeks, so it is highly recommended that those running the v7.3.1 branch
upgrade at their earliest convience.

Major changes in this release are, as listed in the HISTORY file:

   Restore creation of OID column in CREATE TABLE AS / SELECT INTO
   Fix pg_dump core dump when dumping views having comments

   Correctly case-fold variable names in per-database and per-user settings
