xlogdump 0.4.0

I'm pleased to announce the latest release of xlogdump. xlogdump is a tool for extracting data from WAL segment files.

Here is xlogdump README:

xlogdump was originally developed by Tom Lane and Diogo Biazus around five years ago, but not be maintained these few years.

So, I picked it up and have fixed some problems and enhanced. It has still several issues, but it seems to start working, so it's time to try it again, folks!

xlogdump is now able to be compiled against 8.2~9.0 (it was tough fixes!), so it could be a fun (of course, also useful) stuff for many hackers and users.

Please visit the new project repository, and try it.

If you have any bug reports and/or comments, please feel free to email me.

Thanks in advance,

I really appreciate Tom and Diogo for their previous great work.
