./databases/postgresql95, Robust, next generation, object-relational DBMS

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 9.5.14nb1, Package name: postgresql95-9.5.14nb1, Maintainer: adam

PostgreSQL is a robust, next-generation, Object-Relational DBMS (ORDBMS),
derived from the Berkeley Postgres database management system. While
PostgreSQL retains the powerful object-relational data model, rich data types
and easy extensibility of Postgres, it replaces the PostQuel query language
with an extended subset of SQL.

PostgreSQL is free and the complete source is available.

This is the meta-package for the PostgreSQL database system.

postgresql: updated to 10.4, 9.6.9, 9.5.13, 9.4.18, 9.3.23

SECURITY ISSUES
One security vulnerability has been closed by this release:

CVE-2018-1115: Too-permissive access control list on function pg_logfile_rotate()
Please see the "Updating" section below for post-update steps.

BUG FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS
This update also fixes over 50 bugs reported in the last several months. Some of \ 
these issues affect only version 10, but many affect all supported versions.

These fixes include:
Fix incorrect volatility and parallel-safety markings on several built-in \ 
functions to ensure correct query planning optimizations
Several fixes for partitioning, including potential crashes as well as allowing \ 
TRUE and FALSE to be used as partition bounds
Fix where a new TOAST value could be assigned to a dead-but-not-yet-vacuumed \ 
TOAST OID, which would result in an error similar to "unexpected chunk \ 
number 0 (expected 1) for toast value nnnnn"
Fix "CREATE TABLE ... LIKE" with bigint identity columns on 32-bit \ 
platforms
Fix memory leak within the runtime of a query that repeatedly executes hash joins
Several crash fixes around queries using GROUPING SET
Avoid failure if a query-cancel or session-termination interrupt occurs while \ 
committing a prepared transaction
Reduce locking during autovacuum worker scheduling, which prevents loss of \ 
potential worker concurrency
Fix possible slow execution of REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW CONCURRENTLY
Several fixes around query plans that use "index-only" scans
Avoid deadlocks in concurrent CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY commands that are run \ 
under SERIALIZABLE or REPEATABLE READ transaction isolation
Several fixes for SP-GiST indexes, including one collation-aware searches on \ 
text columns
Fixes related to counting the number of tuples in partial GiST, SP-GiST, and \ 
Bloom indexes
Several fixes for logical decoding and replication
Fix misquoting of values for list-valued GUC variables (e.g. \ 
local_preload_libraries, session_preload_libraries, shared_preload_libraries, \ 
temp_tablespaces) in dumps
Several fixes for pg_stat_activity
Several fixes for ecpg
Fix for pg_recvlogical to ensure compatibility with PostgreSQL versions released \ 
before 10
Several fixes for pg_rewind

Log message:
postgresqlNN: updated to 10.3, 9.6.8, 9.5.12, 9.4.17, 9.3.22

PostgreSQL 10.3, 9.6.8, 9.5.12, 9.4.17, and 9.3.22:
The purpose of this release is to address CVE-2018-1058, which describes how a \ 
user can create like-named objects in different schemas that can change the \ 
behavior of other users' queries and cause unexpected or malicious behavior, \ 
also known as a "trojan-horse" attack. Most of this release centers \ 
around added documentation that describes the issue and how to take steps to \ 
mitigate the impact on PostgreSQL databases.

Log message:
postgresql: updated to 10.2, 9.6.7, 9.5.11, 9.4.16, and 9.3.21

This release fixes two security issues. This release also fixes issues with \ 
VACUUM, GIN indexes, and hash indexes that could lead to data corruption, as \ 
well as fixes for using parallel queries and logical replication.

Security Issues
* CVE-2018-1052: Fix the processing of partition keys containing multiple expressions
* CVE-2018-1053: Ensure that all temporary files made with \ 
"pg_upgrade" are non-world-readable

Bug Fixes and Improvements
* Fix crash and potential disclosure of backend memory when processing partition \ 
keys containing multiple expressions
* Fix potential disclosure of temporary files containing database passwords \ 
created by pg_upgrade by not allowing these files to be world-accessible
* Fix cases where VACUUM would not remove dead rows if they were updated while \ 
"key-share" locked, leading to potential data corruption
* Fix for GIN indexes to prevent bloat by ensuring the pending-insertions list \ 
is cleaned up by VACUUM
* Fix potential index corruption with hash indexes due to failure to mark \ 
metapages as dirty
* Fix several potential crash scenarios for parallel queries, including when a \ 
bitmap heap scan cannot allocate memory
* Fix several potential hang-ups in parallel queries, including when a parallel \ 
worker fails to start
* Fix collection of EXPLAIN statistics from parallel workers
* Prevent fake deadlock failures when multiple sessions are running CREATE INDEX \ 
CONCURRENTLY
* Fix for trigger behavior when using logical replication
* Several fixes for "walsender" functionality to improve stability as \ 
well as visibility into the replication process
* Fix logical decoding to correctly clean up disk files for crashed transactions
* Several fixes for identity columns, including disallowing identity columns on \ 
tables derived from composite types and partitions
* Fix handling of list partitioning constraints for partition keys of boolean \ 
and array types
* Fix incorrectly generated plans for UPDATE and DELETE queries when a table has \ 
a mix of inherited regular and foreign child tables
* Fix incorrect query results from cases involving GROUPING SETS when used with \ 
flattened subqueries
* Fix UNION/INTERSECT/EXCEPT over zero columns, e.g. "SELECT UNION SELECT;"
* Several fixes for subqueries within a LATERAL subquery
* Several improvements for query planning estimation
* Allow a client that supports SCRAM channel binding, such as a future version \ 
of PostgreSQL or libpq, to connect to a PostgreSQL 10 server
* Fix sample INSTR() functions used to help transition from Oracle(r) PL/SQL to \ 
PostgreSQL PL/pgSQL to correctly match Oracle functional behavior
* Fix pg_dump to make permissions (ACL), security label, and comment entries \ 
reliably identifiable in archive outputs
* Modify behavior for contrib/cube's "cube ~> int" operator to make \ 
it compatible with KNN search. This is a backwards incompatible change and any \ 
expression indexes or materialized views using this operator will need to be \ 
reindexed and refreshed, respectively.
* Several fixes in contrib/postgres_fdw to prevent query planner errors
* Added modern examples of auto-start scripts for PostgreSQL on macOS in the \ 
contrib/start-scripts/macos directory
* Several fixes for Windows, including postmaster startup and compatibility with \ 
libperl
* Spinlock fixes and support for Motorola 68K and 88K architectures

Log message:
PR 52787: fix postgres kerberos handling. Tuck the kerberos support
(whether "kerberos" or "gssapi") within an option so it can \ 
be turned
off. For 92/93 this is the existing "kerberos" option; for 94+ this
is the "gssapi" option instead, to satisfy the one person who cares
about the distinction.

For postgresql92 and 93 the kerberos option is now on by default (it
wasn't before, only the "gssapi" code has been on by default since the
last update) -- it isn't clear to what extent this may make the binary
packages different so precautionary revbumps will be coming in a
moment.

Technically for 92/93 the "gssapi" code could be attached to a
separate "gssapi" option so as to make the existing behavior entirely
unchanged, but this seems likely to be confusing in the long run and
thus not a good idea.
