./databases/postgresql96-client, PostgreSQL database client programs

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 9.6.10nb1, Package name: postgresql96-client-9.6.10nb1, 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 package contains the database client programs.

postgresql: updated to 10.5, 9.6.10, 9.5.14, 9.4.19, 9.3.24

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported \ 
versions of our database system, including 10.5, 9.6.10, 9.5.14, 9.4.19, 9.3.24. \ 
This release fixes two security issues as well as bugs reported over the last \ 
three months.

SECURITY ISSUES:
CVE-2018-10915: CERTAIN HOST CONNECTION PARAMETERS DEFEAT CLIENT-SIDE SECURITY \ 
DEFENSES
CVE-2018-10925: MEMORY DISCLOSURE AND MISSING AUTHORIZATION IN INSERT ... ON \ 
CONFLICT DO UPDATE

BUG FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS
Several fixes related to VACUUM, including an issue that could lead to data \ 
corruption in certain system catalog tables
Several fixes for replaying write-ahead logs, including a case where a \ 
just-promoted standby server would not restart if it crashed before its first \ 
post-recovery checkpoint
Several performance improvements for replaying write-ahead logs
Several fixes for logical replication and logical decoding, including ensuring \ 
logical WAL senders are reporting the streaming state correctly
Allow replication slots to be dropped in single-user mode
Fix to have variance and similar aggregate functions return accurate results \ 
when executed using parallel query
Fix SQL-standard FETCH FIRST syntax to allow parameters ($n), as the standard expects
Fix to ensure that a process doing a parallel index scan will respond to \ 
signals, such as one to abort a query
Fix EXPLAIN's accounting for resource usage, particularly buffer accesses, in \ 
parallel workers
Several fixes for the query planner including improving the cost estimates for \ 
hash-joins and choosing to use indexes for mergejoins on composite type columns
Fix performance regression related to POSIX semaphores for multi-CPU systems \ 
running Linux or FreeBSD
Fix for GIN indexes that could lead to an assertion failure after a pg_upgrade \ 
from a version before PostgreSQL 9.4
Fix for SHOW ALL to display superuser configuration settings to roles that are \ 
allowed to read all settings
Fix issue where COPY FROM .. WITH HEADER would drop a line after every \ 
4,294,967,296 lines processed
Several fixes for XML support, including using the document node as the context \ 
for XPath queries as defined in the SQL standard, which affects the xpath and \ 
xpath_exists functions, as well as XMLTABLE
Fix libpq for certain cases where hostaddr is used
Several ecpg fixes for Windows
Fix password prompting in Windows client programs so that echo is properly disabled
Several pg_dump fixes, including correctly outputting REPLICA IDENTITY \ 
properties for constraint indexes
Make pg_upgrade check that the old server was shut down cleanly

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 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.

downtime.
