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

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 9.5.10, Package name: postgresql95-9.5.10, 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 the latest

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported \ 
versions of our database system, including 10.1, 9.6.6, 9.5.10, 9.4.15, 9.3.20, \ 
and 9.2.24. This release fixes three security issues. This release also fixes \ 
issues found in BRIN indexing, logical replication and other bugs reported over \ 
the past three months.

All users using the affected versions of PostgreSQL should update as soon as \ 
possible. If you use BRIN indexes or contrib/start-scripts, please see the \ 
release notes for additional post-upgrade steps.

Security Issues

Three security vulnerabilities have been fixed by this release:

CVE-2017-12172: Start scripts permit database administrator to modify root-owned \ 
files
CVE-2017-15098: Memory disclosure in JSON functions
CVE-2017-15099: INSERT ... ON CONFLICT DO UPDATE fails to enforce SELECT privileges

Bug Fixes and Improvements

This update also fixes a number of bugs reported in the last few months. Some of \ 
these issues affect only version 10, but many affect all supported versions:

Fix a race condition in BRIN indexing that could cause some rows to not be \ 
included in the indexing.
Fix crash when logical decoding is invoked from a PL language function.
Several fixes for logical replication.
Restored behavior for CTEs attached to INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE statements to \ 
pre-version 10.
Prevent low-probability crash in processing of nested trigger firings.
Do not evaluate an aggregate function's argument expressions when the conditions \ 
in the FILTER clause evaluate to FALSE. This complies with SQL-standard \ 
behavior.
Fix incorrect query results when multiple GROUPING SETS columns contain the same \ 
simple variable.
Fix memory leak over the lifespan of a query when evaluating a set-returning \ 
function from the target list in a SELECT.
Several fixes for parallel query execution, including fixing a crash in the \ 
parallel execution of certain queries that contain a certain type of bitmap \ 
scan.
Fix json_build_array(), json_build_object(), jsonb_build_array(), and \ 
jsonb_build_object() to handle explicit VARIADIC arguments correctly.
Prevent infinite float values from being casted to the numeric type.
Fix autovacuum's “work item” logic to prevent possible crashes and silent \ 
loss of work items.
Several fixes for VIEWs around adding columns to the end of a view.
Fix for hashability detection of range data types that are created by a user.
Improvements on using extended statistics on columns for the purposes of query \ 
planning.
Prevent idle_in_transaction_session_timeout from being ignored when a \ 
statement_timeout occurred earlier.
Fix low-probability loss of NOTIFY messages due more than 2 billion transactions \ 
processing before any queries are executed in the session.
Several file system interaction fixes.
Correctly restore the umask setting when file creation fails in COPY or lo_export().
Fix pg_dump to ensure that it emits GRANT commands in a valid order.
Fix pg_basebackup's matching of tablespace paths to canonicalize both paths \ 
before comparing to help improve Windows compatibility.
Fix libpq to not require user's home directory to exist when trying to read the \ 
"~/.pgpass" file.
Several fixes for ecpg.

security issues should update as soon as possible. Users affected by \ 
CVE-2017-7547 will need to perform additional steps after upgrading to resolve \ 
the issue. Other users should plan to update at the next convenient downtime.

Three security vulnerabilities have been closed by this release:
* CVE-2017-7546: Empty password accepted in some authentication methods
* CVE-2017-7547: The "pg_user_mappings" catalog view discloses \
