PostGIS and Natural Earth Data Users-

  in svn trunk now are changes to install_postgis.sh and 
load_gisdata.sh implementing both PostGIS 2.0, and including a new data 
tar ball from download.osgeo.org of NaturalEarth 2 shp files. The 
NaturalEarth 2 shp layers match the previous set on the Live, 
but there are small changes in some names, for the better  (see 
release notes)
  also,  there are some reference tables in NaturalEarth 2, not 
large, which might be interesting to include later


PostGIS 2.0

  via package from UBUNTUGIS-UNSTABLE repository is now installed. It 
is very likely going to be the shipping version of PostGIS in the next 
release, as discussed.  

  there will be a new alpha build including these changes, to be scheduled... 

best regards from Berkeley, California
