Since more and more new users seem to be trying to use the release 
version with PostgreSQL 7.3.X, I have created a new release version 
0.7.4 which includes support for that PgSQL version. It also includes 
the several fixes to shp2pgsql which have occurred since the last 
official release. Spatial index selectivity is included as well, though 
that is pretty hard to figure out until we add the documentation. Dave 
explained it thoroughly on this list, for those who are interested 
(search for "selectivity" in the archives and read the Makefile carefully).

The next release should be 0.8.0 which will include real spatial 
predicates, based on the GEOS library (geos.refractions.net). Before 
that major release, there will be a testing period where we will be 
asking folks to make use of the CVS version and exercise the predicates 
and the build system.
