PostgreSQL 9.1 + synchronous replication

PostgreSQL 9.1 is now available in beta, introducing a number of new features. Among the new features is support for synchronous replication for the database.
"The database administrator can decide on a per-transaction basis which ones need to be replicated and which ones don't. The advantage of that is that there are a lot of mixed load applications which might have a small amount of essential data and a large amount of data that is not as important".
