./databases/postgresql12-plperl, PL/Perl procedural language for the PostgreSQL backend

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 12.2, Package name: postgresql12-plperl-12.2, Maintainer: adam

PL/Perl allows you to write functions in the Perl programming language
that may be used in SQL queries as if they were built into Postgres.
The PL/Perl intepreter is a full Perl interpreter. However, certain
operations have been disabled in order to maintain the security of the
system.


Required to run:
[textproc/libxml2] [lang/perl5] [security/heimdal] [databases/postgresql12-client] [databases/postgresql12-server]

Required to build:
[pkgtools/cwrappers]

Package options: gssapi, nls

Log message:
postgresqlNN: updated to 12.2, 11.7, 10.12, 9.6.17, 9.5.21, and 9.4.26

PostgreSQL 12.2, 11.7, 10.12, 9.6.17, 9.5.21, and 9.4.26

PostgreSQL 9.4 Now EOL

This is the last release for PostgreSQL 9.4, which will no longer receive \ 
security updates and bug fixes. PostgreSQL 9.4 introduced new features such as \ 
JSONB support, the ALTER SYSTEM command, the ability to stream logical changes \ 
to an output plugin, and more.

While we are very proud of this release, these features are also found in newer \ 
versions of PostgreSQL. Many of these features have also received improvements, \ 
and, per our versioning policy, it is time to retire PostgreSQL 9.4.

To receive continued support, we suggest that you make plans to upgrade to a \ 
newer, supported version of PostgreSQL. Please see the PostgreSQL versioning \ 
policy for more information.

Security Issues

CVE-2020-1720: ALTER ... DEPENDS ON EXTENSION is missing authorization checks.
Versions Affected: 9.6 - 12

The ALTER ... DEPENDS ON EXTENSION sub-commands do not perform authorization \ 
checks, which can allow an unprivileged user to drop any function, procedure, \ 
materialized view, index, or trigger under certain conditions. This attack is \ 
possible if an administrator has installed an extension and an unprivileged user \ 
can CREATE, or an extension owner either executes DROP EXTENSION predictably or \ 
can be convinced to execute DROP EXTENSION.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

This update also fixes over 75 bugs that were reported in the last several \ 
months. Some of these issues affect only version 12, but may also affect all \ 
supported versions.

Some of these fixes include:

Fix for partitioned tables with foreign-key references where TRUNCATE ... \ 
CASCADE would not remove all data. If you have previously used TRUNCATE ... \ 
CASCADE on a partitioned table with foreign-key references please see the \ 
"Updating" section for verification and cleanup steps.
Fix failure to add foreign key constraints to table with sub-partitions (aka a \ 
multi-level partitioned table). If you have previously used this functionality, \ 
you can fix it by either detaching and re-attaching the affected partition, or \ 
by dropping and re-adding the foreign key constraint to the parent table. You \ 
can find more information on how to perform these steps in the ALTER TABLE \ 
documentation.
Fix performance issue for partitioned tables introduced by the fix for \ 
CVE-2017-7484 that now allows the planner to use statistics on a child table for \ 
a column that the user is granted access to on the parent table when the query \ 
contains a leaky operator.
Several other fixes and changes for partitioned tables, including disallowing \ 
partition key expressions that return pseudo-types, such as RECORD.
Fix for logical replication subscribers for executing per-column UPDATE triggers.
Fix for several crashes and failures for logical replication subscribers and \ 
publishers.
Improve efficiency of logical replication with REPLICA IDENTITY FULL.
Ensure that calling pg_replication_slot_advance() on a physical replication slot \ 
will persist changes across restarts.
Several fixes for the walsender processes.
Improve performance of hash joins with very large inner relations.
Fix placement of "Subplans Removed" field in EXPLAIN output by placing \ 
it with its parent Append or MergeAppend plan.
Several fixes for parallel query plans.
Several fixes for query planner errors, including one that affected joins to \ 
single-row subqueries.
Several fixes for MCV extend statistics, including one for incorrect estimation \ 
for OR clauses.
Improve efficiency of parallel hash join on CPUs with many cores.
Ignore the CONCURRENTLY option when performing an index creation, drop, or \ 
reindex on a temporary table.
Fall back to non-parallel index builds when a parallelized CREATE INDEX has no \ 
free dynamic shared memory slots.
Several fixes for GiST & GIN indexes.
Fix possible crash in BRIN index operations with box, range and inet data types.
Fix support for BRIN hypothetical indexes.
Fix failure in ALTER TABLE when a column referenced in a GENERATED expression is \ 
added or changed in type earlier in the same ALTER TABLE statement.
Fix handling of multiple AFTER ROW triggers on a foreign table.
Fix off-by-one result for EXTRACT(ISOYEAR FROM timestamp) for BC dates.
Prevent unwanted lowercasing and truncation of RADIUS authentication parameters \ 
in the pg_hba.conf file.
Several fixes for GSSAPI support, including having libpq accept all GSS-related \ 
connection parameters even if the GSSAPI code is not compiled in.
Several fixes for pg_dump and pg_restore when run in parallel mode.
Fix crash with postgres_fdw when trying to execute a remote query on the remote \ 
server such as UPDATE remote_tab SET (x,y) = (SELECT ...).
Disallow NULL category values in the crosstab() function of contrib/tablefunc to \ 
prevent crashes.
Several fixes for Windows, including a race condition that could cause timing \ 
oddities with NOTIFY.
Several ecpg fixes.

Log message:
postgresql12: added version 12.0

Release 12:

General performance improvements, including:
* Optimizations to space utilization and read/write performance for B-tree indexes
* Partitioning performance enhancements, including improved query performance on \ 
tables with thousands of partitions, improved insertion performance with INSERT \ 
and COPY, and the ability to execute ALTER TABLE ATTACH PARTITION without \ 
blocking queries
* Automatic (but overridable) inlining of common table expressions (CTEs)
* Reduction of WAL overhead for creation of GiST, GIN, and SP-GiST indexes
* Support for covering GiST indexes, via the INCLUDE clause
* Multi-column most-common-value (MCV) statistics can be defined via CREATE \ 
STATISTICS, to support better plans for queries that test several \ 
non-uniformly-distributed columns

Enhancements to administrative functionality, including:
* REINDEX CONCURRENTLY can rebuild an index without blocking writes to its table
* pg_checksums can enable/disable page checksums (used for detecting data \ 
corruption) in an offline cluster
* Progress reporting statistics for CREATE INDEX, REINDEX, CLUSTER, VACUUM FULL, \ 
and pg_checksums

Support for the SQL/JSON path language

Stored generated columns

Nondeterministic ICU collations, enabling case-insensitive and \ 
accent-insensitive grouping and ordering

New authentication features, including:
* Encryption of TCP/IP connections when using GSSAPI authentication
* Discovery of LDAP servers using DNS SRV records
* Multi-factor authentication, using the clientcert=verify-full option combined \ 
with an additional authentication method in pg_hba.conf
