* Sat Mar 10 2018 email@example.com - Update to PostgreSQL 9.6.8 * https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.6/static/release-9-6-8.html A dump/restore is not required for those running 9.6.X. However, if you run an installation in which not all users are mutually trusting, or if you maintain an application or extension that is intended for use in arbitrary situations, it is strongly recommended that you read the documentation changes described in the first changelog entry in the link above, and take suitable steps to ensure that your installation or code is secure. Also, the changes described in the second changelog entry in the link above may cause functions used in index expressions or materialized views to fail during auto-analyze, or when reloading from a dump. After upgrading, monitor the server logs for such problems, and fix affected functions. * CVE-2018-1058 bsc#1081925 Uncontrolled search path element in pg_dump and other client applications * Fri Feb 09 2018 firstname.lastname@example.org - Update to PostgreSQL 9.6.7 * https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.6/static/release-9-6-7.html * CVE-2018-1053, bsc#1077983: Ensure that all temporary files made by pg_upgrade are non-world-readable. * bsc#1079757: Rename pg_rewind's copy_file_range function to avoid conflict with new Linux system call of that name. - Don't %config the symlinks to /etc/alternatives to avoid rpmlint warnings. * Tue Dec 05 2017 email@example.com - Update to version 9.6.6: * https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.6/static/release-9-6-6.html * Security Issues - CVE-2017-15098, bsc#1067844: Memory disclosure in JSON functions - CVE-2017-15099, bsc#1067841: INSERT ... ON CONFLICT DO UPDATE fails to enforce SELECT privileges Prior to this release, the "INSERT ... ON CONFLICT DO UPDATE" would not check to see if the executing user had permission to perform a "SELECT" on the index performing the conflicting check. Additionally, in a table with row-level security enabled, the "INSERT ... ON CONFLICT DO UPDATE" would not check the SELECT policies for that table before performing the update. This fix ensures that "INSERT ... ON CONFLICT DO UPDATE" checks against table permissions and RLS policies before executing. * Thu Nov 23 2017 firstname.lastname@example.org - port /usr/share/postgresql/install-alternatives usage to the new scheme * Fri Nov 03 2017 email@example.com - Simplify the set of local RPM macros. - Use /usr/share/postgresql/install-alternatives in the respective scriptlets. - Fix the logic around restart on upgrade and stop on removal.

Before reporting a bug in the beta, please check the Open Items page. * Thu May 12 2016 firstname.lastname@example.org - update to 9.6beta1 - Major Features of 9.6 Version 9.6 includes significant changes and exciting enhancements including: - Parallel sequential scans, joins and aggregates - Support for consistent, read-scaling clusters through multiple synchronous standbys and "remote_apply" synchronous commit. - Full text search for phrases - postgres_fdw can now execute sorts, joins, UPDATEs and DELETEs on the remote server - Decreased autovacuum impact on big tables by avoiding "refreezing" old data. - In particular, parallel execution should bring a noticeable increase in performance to supported queries. - Help Test for Bugs As with other major releases, the improvements in PostgreSQL include changes to large amounts of code. We count on you to test the altered version with your workloads and testing tools in order to find bugs and regressions before the release of PostgreSQL 9.6.0. In addition to testing that the new features work as documented, consider testing the following: - Do parallel queries actually improve performance for you? - Can you make parallel queries crash or lose data? - Do our code changes cause PostgreSQL to not function on your platform? - Does improved vacuum freezing safely reduce autovacuum of large tables? - Does phrase search return the results you expect? Version 9.6 Beta 1 also makes changes to the binary backup API. Administrators should test version 9.6 with PostgreSQL backup tools, including pgBackRest, Barman, WAL-E, and other packaged and in-house software. As this is a Beta, minor changes to database behaviors, feature details, and APIs are still possible. Your feedback and testing will help determine the final tweaks on the new features, so test soon. The quality of user testing helps determine when we can make a final release. http://www.postgresql.org/about/news/1668/ http://www.postgresql.org/docs/devel/static/release-9-6.html - refreshed patches to apply cleanly again: postgresql-plperl-keep-rpath.patch postgresql-testsuite-int8.sql.patch postgresql-testsuite-keep-results-file.patch postgresql-var-run-socket.patch - regress part is disabled atm as it causes a buildfailure - also remove static libraries in pglibdir. This release introduced a new file there called pgfeutils.a * Wed May 04 2016 email@example.com - Security and bugfix release 9.5.2: (bnc# 978456) This release closes security hole CVE-2016-2193, where a query plan might get reused for more than one ROLE in the same session. This could cause the wrong set of Row Level Security (RLS) policies to be used for the query. The update also fixes CVE-2016-3065, a server crash bug triggered by using pageinspect with BRIN index pages. Since an attacker might be able to expose a few bytes of server memory, this crash is being treated as a security issue. - Fix two bugs in indexed ROW() comparisons - Avoid data loss due to renaming files - Prevent an error in rechecking rows in SELECT FOR UPDATE/SHARE - Fix bugs in multiple json_ and jsonb_ functions - Log lock waits for INSERT ON CONFLICT correctly - Ignore recovery_min_apply_delay until reaching a consistent state - Fix issue with pg_subtrans XID wraparound - Fix assorted bugs in Logical Decoding - Fix planner error with nested security barrier views - Prevent memory leak in GIN indexes - Fix two issues with ispell dictionaries - Avoid a crash on old Windows versions - Skip creating an erroneous delete script in pg_upgrade - Correctly translate empty arrays into PL/Perl - Make PL/Python cope with identifier names - changes from 9.5.1 (bnc# 966435 bnc# 966436 bnc# 978323) This release closes security hole CVE-2016-0773, an issue with regular expression (regex) parsing. Prior code allowed users to pass in expressions which included out-of-range Unicode characters, triggering a backend crash. This issue is critical for PostgreSQL systems with untrusted users or which generate regexes based on user input. The update also fixes CVE-2016-0766, a privilege escalation issue for users of PL/Java. Certain custom configuration settings (GUCS) for PL/Java will now be modifiable only by the database superuser. In addition to the above, many other issues were patched in this release based on bugs reported by our users over the last few months. This includes multiple fixes for new features introduced in version 9.5.0, as well as refactoring of pg_dump to eliminate a number of chronic issues with backing up EXTENSIONs. Among them are: - Fix many issues in pg_dump with specific object types - Prevent over-eager pushdown of HAVING clauses for GROUPING SETS - Fix deparsing error with ON CONFLICT ... WHERE clauses - Fix tableoid errors for postgres_fdw - Prevent floating-point exceptions in pgbench - Make \det search Foreign Table names consistently - Fix quoting of domain constraint names in pg_dump - Prevent putting expanded objects into Const nodes - Allow compile of PL/Java on Windows - Fix "unresolved symbol" errors in PL/Python execution - Allow Python2 and Python3 to be used in the same database - Add support for Python 3.5 in PL/Python - Fix issue with subdirectory creation during initdb - Make pg_ctl report status correctly on Windows - Suppress confusing error when using pg_receivexlog with older servers - Multiple documentation corrections and additions - Fix erroneous hash calculations in gin_extract_jsonb_path() - This update also contains tzdata release 2016a, with updates for Cayman Islands, Metlakatla, Trans-Baikal Territory (Zabaykalsky Krai), and Pakistan. - changes from 9.5.0 A most-requested feature by application developers for several years, "UPSERT" is shorthand for "INSERT, ON CONFLICT UPDATE", allowing new and updated rows to be treated the same. UPSERT simplifies web and mobile application development by enabling the database to handle conflicts between concurrent data changes. This feature also removes the last significant barrier to migrating legacy MySQL applications to PostgreSQL. Developed over the last two years by Heroku programmer Peter Geoghegan, PostgreSQL's implementation of UPSERT is significantly more flexible and powerful than those offered by other relational databases. The new ON CONFLICT clause permits ignoring the new data, or updating different columns or relations in ways which will support complex ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) toolchains for bulk data loading. And, like all of PostgreSQL, it is designed to be absolutely concurrency-safe and to integrate with all other PostgreSQL features, including Logical Replication. PostgreSQL continues to expand database security capabilities with its new Row Level Security (RLS) feature. RLS implements true per-row and per-column data access control which integrates with external label-based security stacks such as SE Linux. PostgreSQL is already known as "the most secure by default." RLS cements its position as the best choice for applications with strong data security requirements, such as compliance with PCI, the European Data Protection Directive, and healthcare data protection standards. RLS is the culmination of five years of security features added to PostgreSQL, including extensive work by KaiGai Kohei of NEC, Stephen Frost of Crunchy Data, and Dean Rasheed. Through it, database administrators can set security "policies" which filter which rows particular users are allowed to update or view. Data security implemented this way is resistant to SQL injection exploits and other application-level security holes. PostgreSQL 9.5 includes multiple new features for bigger databases, and for integrating with other Big Data systems. These features ensure that PostgreSQL continues to have a strong role in the rapidly growing open source Big Data marketplace. Among them are: BRIN Indexing: This new type of index supports creating tiny, but effective indexes for very large, "naturally ordered" tables. For example, tables containing logging data with billions of rows could be indexed and searched in 5% of the time required by standard BTree indexes. Faster Sorts: PostgreSQL now sorts text and NUMERIC data faster, using an algorithm called "abbreviated keys". This makes some queries which need to sort large amounts of data 2X to 12X faster, and can speed up index creation by 20X. CUBE, ROLLUP and GROUPING SETS: These new standard SQL clauses let users produce reports with multiple levels of summarization in one query instead of requiring several. CUBE will also enable tightly integrating PostgreSQL with more Online Analytic Processing (OLAP) reporting tools such as Tableau. Foreign Data Wrappers (FDWs): These already allow using PostgreSQL as a query engine for other Big Data systems such as Hadoop and Cassandra. Version 9.5 adds IMPORT FOREIGN SCHEMA and JOIN pushdown making query connections to external databases both easier to set up and more efficient. TABLESAMPLE: This SQL clause allows grabbing a quick statistical sample of huge tables, without the need for expensive sorting. "The new BRIN index in PostgreSQL 9.5 is a powerful new feature which enables PostgreSQL to manage and index volumes of data that were impractical or impossible in the past. It allows scalability of data and performance beyond what was considered previously attainable with traditional relational databases and makes PostgreSQL a perfect solution for Big Data analytics," said Boyan Botev, Lead Database Administrator, Premier, Inc. http://www.postgresql.org/about/news/1636/ - For the full release notes, see: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.5/static/release-9-5.html http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.5/static/release-9-5-1.html http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.5/static/release-9-5-2.html - refreshed patches to match new release postgresql-conf.patch postgresql-plperl-keep-rpath.patch postgresql-regress.patch postgresql-testsuite-keep-results-file.patch postgresql-var-run-socket.patch - drop postgresql-testsuite-seclabel-location.patch: the dummy seclabel test is gone * Wed May 04 2016 firstname.lastname@example.org - Security and bugfix release 9.4.7: (bnc# 978456) This release closes security hole CVE-2016-2193, where a query plan might get reused for more than one ROLE in the same session.

make postgresql-init a buildrequire. requires(pre) are used during build, but do not cause a rebuild trigger. But to make the depencency visible for bootstrapping, mark it as real buildrequire * Fri Feb 21 2014 firstname.lastname@example.org - Security and bugfix release 9.3.3: * Shore up GRANT ... WITH ADMIN OPTION restrictions (CVE-2014-0060, bnc#864845) * Prevent privilege escalation via manual calls to PL validator functions (CVE-2014-0061, bnc#864846) * Avoid multiple name lookups during table and index DDL (CVE-2014-0062, bnc#864847) * Prevent buffer overrun with long datetime strings (CVE-2014-0063, bnc#864850) * Prevent buffer overrun due to integer overflow in size calculations (CVE-2014-0064, bnc#864851) * Prevent overruns of fixed-size buffers (CVE-2014-0065, bnc#864852) * Avoid crashing if crypt() returns NULL (CVE-2014-0066, bnc#864853) * Document risks of make check in the regression testing instructions (CVE-2014-0067) * Rework tuple freezing protocol. The logic for tuple freezing was unable to handle some cases involving freezing of multixact IDs, with the practical effect that shared row-level locks might be forgotten once old enough. Fixing this required changing the WAL record format for tuple freezing. While this is no issue for standalone servers, when using replication it means that STANDBY SERVERS MUST BE UPGRADED TO 9.3.3 OR LATER BEFORE THEIR MASTERS ARE. * For the other (many!) bug fixes, see the release notes: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.3/static/release-9-3-3.html * Wed Feb 12 2014 email@example.com - remove postgresql-tas-aarch64.patch: Fix build for aarch64 * Wed Jan 15 2014 firstname.lastname@example.org - Fix handling of alternatives in the file lists. * Fri Dec 06 2013 email@example.com - Update to version 9.3.2: * Fix VACUUM's tests to see whether it can update relfrozenxid * Fix multiple bugs in MultiXactId freezing * Fix initialization of pg_clog and og_subtrans during hot standby startup * Fix multiple bugs in update chain traversal * Fix dangling-pointer problem in fast-path locking * Fix assorted race conditions in timeout management * Prevent intra-transaction memory leak when printing range values * Truncate pg_multixact contents during WAL replay * Ensure an anti-wraparound VACUUM counts a page as scanned when it's only verified that no tuples need freezing * Fix full-table-vacuum request mechanism for MultiXactIds * Fix race condition in GIN index posting tree page deletion * Avoid flattening a subquery whose SELECT list contains a volatile function wrapped inside a sub-SELECT * See release notes for a full list of changes: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.3/static/release-9-3-2.html /usr/share/doc/packages/postgresql93/HISTORY * Fri Dec 06 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org - Added option to build postgresql-devel package separatly from postresql-libs * Sat Nov 16 2013 email@example.com - Update to version 9.3.1: * Update hstore extension with JSON functionality * Fix memory leak when creating range indexes * Serializable snapshot fixes * Fix libpq SSL deadlock bug * Fix timeline handling bugs in pg_receivexlog * Prevent CREATE FUNCTION from checking SET variables unless function body checking is enabled * Remove rare inaccurate warning during vacuum of index-less tables * Wed Sep 11 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org - Added patch to build testsuite package (bnc#829952) * Wed Sep 11 2013 email@example.com - Re-enable running the regression tests during build. - The test suite needs the timezone package. * Wed Sep 04 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org - Updated to version 9.3: * Add materialized views * Make simple views auto-updatable * Many JSON improvements, including the addition of operators and functions to extract values from JSON data strings * Implement SQL-standard LATERAL option for FROM-clause subqueries and function calls * Allow foreign data wrappers to support writes (insers/updates/deletes) on foreign tables * Add a Postgres foreign data wrapper contrib module * Add support for event triggers * Add optional ability to checksum data pages and report corruption * Allow a streaming replication standby to follow a timeline switch, and faster failover * Dramatically reduce System V shared memory requirements * Prevent non-key-field row updates from locking foreign key rows * Add command-line utility pg_isready * Add pg_xlogdump contrib program * See release notes for a full list of changes: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.3/static/release-9-3.html /usr/share/doc/packages/postgresql93/HISTORY * Wed May 08 2013 email@example.com - postgresql-tas-aarch64.patch: Implement TAS for aarch64 * Mon Apr 15 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org - Add Source URL, see https://en.opensuse.org/SourceUrls * Tue Apr 02 2013 email@example.com - Updated to version 9.2.4 (bnc#812525): * CVE-2013-1899: Fix insecure parsing of server command-line switches. A connection request containing a database name that begins with "-" could be crafted to damage or destroy files within the server's data directory, even if the request is eventually rejected. * CVE-2013-1900: Reset OpenSSL randomness state in each postmaster child process. This avoids a scenario wherein random numbers generated by "contrib/pgcrypto" functions might be relatively easy for another database user to guess. The risk is only significant when the postmaster is configured with ssl = on but most connections don't use SSL encryption. * CVE-2013-1901: Make REPLICATION privilege checks test current user not authenticated user. An unprivileged database user could exploit this mistake to call pg_start_backup() or pg_stop_backup(), thus possibly interfering with creation of routine backups. * See the release notes for the rest of the changes: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.2/static/release-9-2-4.html /usr/share/doc/packages/postgresql92/HISTORY * Wed Feb 13 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org - Version 9.2.3 also fixes bnc#802679, CVE-2013-0255. - Remove postgresql92-full.spec.in and use postgresql92.spec as the master for generating postgresql92-libs.spec. * Fri Feb 08 2013 email@example.com - Updated to version 9.2.3 * Prevent execution of enum_recv from SQL (Tom Lane) * Fix multiple problems in detection of when a consistent database state has been reached during WAL replay * Fix detection of end-of-backup point when no actual redo work is required * Update minimum recovery point when truncating a relation file * Fix recycling of WAL segments after changing recovery target timeline * Properly restore timeline history files from archive on cascading standby servers * Fix lock conflict detection on hot-standby servers * Fix missing cancellations in hot standby mode * See the release notes for the rest of the changes: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.2/static/release-9-2-3.html /usr/share/doc/packages/postgresql/HISTORY * Tue Jan 08 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org - Use PDX license string. * Thu Dec 20 2012 email@example.com - Conflicts tags don't support the != operator. * Thu Dec 13 2012 firstname.lastname@example.org - Updated to version 9.2.2 * Fix multiple bugs associated with CREATE/DROP INDEX CONCURRENTLY * Correct predicate locking for DROP INDEX CONCURRENTLY * Fix buffer locking during WAL replay * Fix an error in WAL generation logic for GIN indexes * Fix an error in WAL replay logic for SP-GiST indexes * Fix incorrect detection of end-of-base-backup location during WAL recovery * Properly remove startup process's virtual XID lock when promoting a hot standby server to normal running * Avoid bogus "out-of-sequence timeline ID" errors in standby mode * Prevent the postmaster from launching new child processes after it's received a shutdown signal * Fix the syslogger process to not fail when log_rotation_age exceeds 2^31 milliseconds * Fix WaitLatch() to return promptly when the requested timeout expires * Avoid corruption of internal hash tables when out of memory * Prevent file descriptors for dropped tables from being held open past transaction end * See the release notes for the rest of the changes: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.2/static/release-9-2-2.html /usr/share/doc/packages/postgresql/HISTORY * Mon Nov 19 2012 email@example.com - Change mechanism for making postgresql??-devel exclusive (bnc#789562). * Fri Oct 05 2012 firstname.lastname@example.org - Resolve "have choice for libpq.so.5" by ignoring postgresql-libs. * Thu Oct 04 2012 email@example.com - Get the new packaging scheme over to the postgresql92 packages and make 9.2 the new default version. * Mon Oct 01 2012 firstname.lastname@example.org - Bugfix release 9.1.6 (bnc#782251) to fix data corruption issues. * Users who upgrade from a previous 9.1 release should run REINDEX after applying this update.

ADD CONSTRAINT. * Fix possible data corruption in ALTER TABLE ... SET TABLESPACE when archiving is enabled. * Allow CREATE DATABASE and ALTER DATABASE ... SET TABLESPACE to be interrupted by query-cancel. * Improve CREATE INDEX's checking of whether proposed index expressions are immutable. * Fix REASSIGN OWNED to handle operator classes and families. * Fix possible core dump when comparing two empty tsquery values. * Fix LIKE's handling of patterns containing % followed by _ * Re-allow input of Julian dates prior to 0001-01-01 AD. * Fix PL/pgSQL to throw an error, not crash, if a cursor is closed within a FOR loop that is iterating over that cursor. * In PL/Python, defend against null pointer results from PyCObject_AsVoidPtr and PyCObject_FromVoidPtr * In libpq, fix full SSL certificate verification for the case where both host and hostaddr are specified. * Make psql recognize DISCARD ALL as a command that should not be encased in a transaction block in autocommit-off mode. * Fix some issues in pg_dump's handling of SQL/MED objects. * Improve pg_dump and pg_restore's handling of non-seekable archive files. This is important for proper functioning of parallel restore. * Improve parallel pg_restore's ability to cope with selective restore (-L option). * Fix ecpg to process data from RETURNING clauses correctly. * Fix some memory leaks in ecpg. * Improve contrib/dblink's handling of tables containing dropped columns. * Fix connection leak after "duplicate connection name" errors in contrib/dblink. * Fix contrib/dblink to handle connection names longer than 62 bytes correctly. * Add hstore(text, text) function to contrib/hstore. * Thu May 27 2010 email@example.com - Security and bugfix release 8.4.4: * Enforce restrictions in plperl using an opmask applied to the whole interpreter, instead of using Safe.pm. Recent developments have convinced us that Safe.pm is too insecure to rely on for making plperl trustable. This change removes use of Safe.pm altogether, in favor of using a separate interpreter with an opcode mask that is always applied. Pleasant side effects of the change include that it is now possible to use Perl's strict pragma in a natural way in plperl, and that Perl's $a and $b variables work as expected in sort routines, and that function compilation is significantly faster. (CVE-2010-1169) * Prevent PL/Tcl from executing untrustworthy code from pltcl_modules. PL/Tcl's feature for autoloading Tcl code from a database table could be exploited for trojan-horse attacks, because there was no restriction on who could create or insert into that table. This change disables the feature unless pltcl_modules is owned by a superuser. (However, the permissions on the table are not checked, so installations that really need a less-than-secure modules table can still grant suitable privileges to trusted non-superusers.) Also, prevent loading code into the unrestricted "normal" Tcl interpreter unless we are really going to execute a pltclu function. (CVE-2010-1170) * Fix data corruption during WAL replay of ALTER ... SET TABLESPACE. When archive_mode is on, ALTER ... SET TABLESPACE generates a WAL record whose replay logic was incorrect. It could write the data to the wrong place, leading to possibly-unrecoverable data corruption. Data corruption would be observed on standby slaves, and could occur on the master as well if a database crash and recovery occurred after committing the ALTER and before the next checkpoint. * Fix possible crash if a cache reset message is received during rebuild of a relcache entry. This error was introduced in 8.4.3 while fixing a related failure. * Apply per-function GUC settings while running the language validator for the function. * This avoids failures if the function's code is invalid without the setting; an example is that SQL functions may not parse if the search_path is not correct. * Do constraint exclusion for inherited UPDATE and DELETE target tables when constraint_exclusion = partition. Due to an oversight, this setting previously only caused constraint exclusion to be checked in SELECT commands. * Do not allow an unprivileged user to reset superuser-only parameter settings. Previously, if an unprivileged user ran ALTER USER ... RESET ALL for himself, or ALTER DATABASE ... RESET ALL for a database he owns, this would remove all special parameter settings for the user or database, even ones that are only supposed to be changeable by a superuser. Now, the ALTER will only remove the parameters that the user has permission to change. * Avoid possible crash during backend shutdown if shutdown occurs when a CONTEXT addition would be made to log entries. In some cases the context-printing function would fail because the current transaction had already been rolled back when it came time to print a log message. * Fix erroneous handling of %r parameter in recovery_end_command. The value always came out zero. * Ensure the archiver process responds to changes in archive_command as soon as possible. * Fix pl/pgsql's CASE statement to not fail when the case expression is a query that returns no rows. * Update pl/perl's ppport.h for modern Perl versions. * Fix assorted memory leaks in pl/python. * Handle empty-string connect parameters properly in ecpg. * Prevent infinite recursion in psql when expanding a variable that refers to itself. * Fix psql's \copy to not add spaces around a dot within \copy (select ...). Addition of spaces around the decimal point in a numeric literal would result in a syntax error. * Avoid formatting failure in psql when running in a locale context that doesn't match the client_encoding. * Fix unnecessary "GIN indexes do not support whole-index scans" errors for unsatisfiable queries using contrib/intarray operators. * Ensure that contrib/pgstattuple functions respond to cancel interrupts promptly. * Make server startup deal properly with the case that shmget() returns EINVAL for an existing shared memory segment. This behavior has been observed on BSD-derived kernels including OS X. It resulted in an entirely-misleading startup failure complaining that the shared memory request size was too large. * Thu Apr 29 2010 firstname.lastname@example.org - Use %configure to pick up the default directories (bnc#600616). * Tue Mar 16 2010 email@example.com - Security and bugfix release 8.4.3. * Thu Mar 11 2010 firstname.lastname@example.org - Disable GSSAPI, XML, kerberos and make check in OBS for SLES9. * Thu Mar 11 2010 email@example.com - Fix build for SLES9 * Tue Feb 09 2010 firstname.lastname@example.org - Fix package descriptions. * Wed Dec 16 2009 email@example.com - Security and bugfix release 8.4.2: * CVE-2009-4136: Protect against indirect security threats caused by index functions changing session-local state. This change prevents allegedly-immutable index functions from possibly subverting a superuser's session. * CVE-2009-4034: Reject SSL certificates containing an embedded null byte in the common name (CN) field. This prevents unintended matching of a certificate to a server or client name during SSL validation. * Fix hash index corruption. The 8.4 change that made hash indexes keep entries sorted by hash value failed to update the bucket splitting and compaction routines to preserve the ordering. So application of either of those operations could lead to permanent corruption of an index, in the sense that searches might fail to find entries that are present. To deal with this, it is recommended to REINDEX any hash indexes you may have after installing this update. * Fix possible crash during backend-startup-time cache initialization * Avoid crash on empty thesaurus dictionary * Prevent signals from interrupting VACUUM at unsafe times. This fix prevents a PANIC if a VACUUM FULL is cancelled after it's already committed its tuple movements, as well as transient errors if a plain VACUUM is interrupted after having truncated the table. * Fix possible crash due to integer overflow in hash table size calculation. This could occur with extremely large planner estimates for the size of a hashjoin's result. * Fix crash if a DROP is attempted on an internally-dependent object. * Fix very rare crash in inet/cidr comparisons. * Ensure that shared tuple-level locks held by prepared transactions are not ignored. * Fix premature drop of temporary files used for a cursor that is accessed within a subtransaction. * Fix memory leak in syslogger process when rotating to a new CSV logfile. * Fix memory leak in postmaster when re-parsing "pg_hba.conf". * Make FOR UPDATE/SHARE in the primary query not propagate into WITH queries. * Fix bug with a WITH RECURSIVE query immediately inside another one. * Fix concurrency bug in hash indexes. Concurrent insertions could cause index scans to transiently report wrong results. * Fix incorrect logic for GiST index page splits, when the split depends on a non-first column of the index. * Fix wrong search results for a multi-column GIN index with fastupdate enabled. * Fix bugs in WAL entry creation for GIN indexes. These bugs were masked when full_page_writes was on, but with it off a WAL replay failure was certain if a crash occurred before the next checkpoint. * Don't error out if recycling or removing an old WAL file fails at the end of checkpoint. It's better to treat the problem as non-fatal and allow the checkpoint to complete. Future checkpoints will retry the removal. Such problems are not expected in normal operation, but have been seen to be caused by misdesigned Windows anti-virus and backup software. * Ensure WAL files aren't repeatedly archived on Windows. This is another symptom that could happen if some other process interfered with deletion of a no-longer-needed file. * Fix PAM password processing to be more robust. The previous code is known to fail with the combination of the Linux pam_krb5 PAM module with Microsoft Active Directory as the domain controller. It might have problems elsewhere too, since it was making unjustified assumptions about what arguments the PAM stack would pass to it. * Raise the maximum authentication token (Kerberos ticket) size in GSSAPI and SSPI authentication methods. While the old 2000-byte limit was more than enough for Unix Kerberos implementations, tickets issued by Windows Domain Controllers can be much larger. * Ensure that domain constraints are enforced in constructs like ARRAY[...]::domain, where the domain is over an array type. * Fix foreign-key logic for some cases involving composite-type columns as foreign keys. * Ensure that a cursor's snapshot is not modified after it is created. This could lead to a cursor delivering wrong results if later operations in the same transaction modify the data the cursor is supposed to return. * Fix CREATE TABLE to properly merge default expressions coming from different inheritance parent tables. This used to work but was broken in 8.4. * Re-enable collection of access statistics for sequences. This used to work but was broken in 8.3. * Fix processing of ownership dependencies during CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION. * Fix incorrect handling of WHERE "x"="x" conditions. In some cases these could get ignored as redundant, but they aren't -- they're equivalent to "x" IS NOT NULL. * Fix incorrect plan construction when using hash aggregation to implement DISTINCT for textually identical volatile expressions. * Fix Assert failure for a volatile SELECT DISTINCT ON expression. * Fix ts_stat() to not fail on an empty tsvector value. * Make text search parser accept underscores in XML attributes. * Fix encoding handling in xml binary input. If the XML header doesn't specify an encoding, we now assume UTF-8 by default; the previous handling was inconsistent. * Fix bug with calling plperl from plperlu or vice versa. An error exit from the inner function could result in crashes due to failure to re-select the correct Perl interpreter for the outer function. * Fix session-lifespan memory leak when a PL/Perl function is redefined. * Ensure that Perl arrays are properly converted to PostgreSQL arrays when returned by a set-returning PL/Perl function. This worked correctly already for non-set-returning functions. * Fix rare crash in exception processing in PL/Python. * Fix ecpg problem with comments in DECLARE CURSOR statements. * Fix ecpg to not treat recently-added keywords as reserved words. This affected the keywords CALLED, CATALOG, DEFINER, ENUM, FOLLOWING, INVOKER, OPTIONS, PARTITION, PRECEDING, RANGE, SECURITY, SERVER, UNBOUNDED, and WRAPPER. * Re-allow regular expression special characters in psql's \df function name parameter. * In "contrib/pg_standby", disable triggering failover with a signal on Windows. This never did anything useful, because Windows doesn't have Unix-style signals, but recent changes made it actually crash. * Put FREEZE and VERBOSE options in the right order in the VACUUM command that "contrib/vacuumdb" produces. * Fix possible leak of connections when "contrib/dblink" encounters an error. * Ensure psql's flex module is compiled with the correct system header definitions. This fixes build failures on platforms where --enable-largefile causes incompatible changes in the generated code. * Make the postmaster ignore any application_name parameter in connection request packets, to improve compatibility with future libpq versions. * Update the timezone abbreviation files to match current reality This includes adding IDT to the default timezone abbreviation set. * Wed Dec 16 2009 firstname.lastname@example.org - package documentation as noarch * Mon Dec 14 2009 email@example.com - add baselibs.conf as a source * Wed Sep 16 2009 firstname.lastname@example.org - use find_lang to package language files correctly * Thu Sep 10 2009 email@example.com - Security and bugfix release 8.4.1: * Fix WAL page header initialization at the end of archive recovery. This could lead to failure to process the WAL in a subsequent archive recovery. * Fix "cannot make new WAL entries during recovery" error. * Fix problem that could make expired rows visible after a crash. This bug involved a page status bit potentially not being set correctly after a server crash. * Disallow RESET ROLE and RESET SESSION AUTHORIZATION inside security-definer functions. This covers a case that was missed in the previous patch that disallowed SET ROLE and SET SESSION AUTHORIZATION inside security-definer functions. (See CVE-2007-6600) * Make LOAD of an already-loaded loadable module into a no-op. * Formerly, LOAD would attempt to unload and re-load the module, but this is unsafe and not all that useful. * Make window function PARTITION BY and ORDER BY items always be interpreted as simple expressions. In 8.4.0 these lists were parsed following the rules used for top-level GROUP BY and ORDER BY lists. But this was not correct per the SQL standard, and it led to possible circularity. * Fix several errors in planning of semi-joins. These led to wrong query results in some cases where IN or EXISTS was used together with another join. * Fix handling of whole-row references to subqueries that are within an outer join. An example is SELECT COUNT(ss.*) FROM ... LEFT JOIN (SELECT ...) ss ON .... Here, ss.* would be treated as ROW(NULL,NULL,...) for null-extended join rows, which is not the same as a simple NULL. Now it is treated as a simple NULL. * Fix Windows shared-memory allocation code. This bug led to the often-reported "could not reattach to shared memory" error message. * Fix locale handling with plperl. This bug could cause the server's locale setting to change when a plperl function is called, leading to data corruption. * Fix handling of reloptions to ensure setting one option doesn't force default values for others. * Ensure that a "fast shutdown" request will forcibly terminate open sessions, even if a "smart shutdown" was already in progress. * Avoid memory leak for array_agg() in GROUP BY queries. * Treat to_char(..., 'TH') as an uppercase ordinal suffix with 'HH'/'HH12'. It was previously handled as 'th' (lowercase). * Include the fractional part in the result of EXTRACT(second) and EXTRACT(milliseconds) for time and time with time zone inputs. This has always worked for floating-point datetime configurations, but was broken in the integer datetime code. * Fix overflow for INTERVAL 'x ms' when x is more than 2 million and integer datetimes are in use. * Improve performance when processing toasted values in index scans. This is particularly useful for PostGIS. * Fix a typo that disabled commit_delay. * Output early-startup messages to postmaster.log if the server is started in silent mode. Previously such error messages were discarded, leading to difficulty in debugging. * Remove translated FAQs. They are now on the wiki. The main FAQ was moved to the wiki some time ago. * Fix pg_ctl to not go into an infinite loop if postgresql.conf is empty. * Fix several errors in pg_dump's --binary-upgrade mode. * pg_dump --binary-upgrade is used by pg_migrator. * Fix contrib/xml2's xslt_process() to properly handle the maximum number of parameters (twenty). * Improve robustness of libpq's code to recover from errors during COPY FROM STDIN. * Avoid including conflicting readline and editline header files when both libraries are installed. * Work around gcc bug that causes "floating-point exception" instead of "division by zero" on some platforms. * Mon Jul 27 2009 firstname.lastname@example.org - postgresql-8.4.0-sle10-timestamptz.patch added, and applied _only_ on SLE10. It fixes a build failure due to a test case that seems to be confused by daylight saving time in the time zone that the test expects its result (PDT vs. PST). Since this failure happened only on SLE10, I assume that the test case isn't broken, and some peculiarity on that (rather old now) platform is to blame (possibly too old timezone files). Also, the testcase is checking correctness when converting timezones > 32 bit, which actually seems to work. * Wed Jul 15 2009 email@example.com - replace "ident sameuser" with "ident" as auth method for the initdb call in the init script, because the former doesn't work with PostgreSQL 8.4. With the generated pg_hba.conf, PostgreSQL failed to start. Added note to the upgrade READMEs. [bnc#522375] * Tue Jul 07 2009 firstname.lastname@example.org - New major release: 8.4.0 - Improvements include: * Windowing Functions * Common Table Expressions and Recursive Queries * Default and variadic parameters for functions * Parallel Restore * Column Permissions * Per-database locale settings * Improved hash indexes * Improved join performance for EXISTS and NOT EXISTS queries * Easier-to-use Warm Standby * Automatic sizing of the Free Space Map * Visibility Map (greatly reduces vacuum overhead for slowly-changing tables) * Version-aware psql (backslash commands work against older servers) * Support SSL certificates for user authentication * Per-function runtime statistics * Easy editing of functions in psql * New contrib modules: pg_stat_statements, auto_explain, citext, btree_gin * Wed May 06 2009 email@example.com - Remove dependency on local posixrules from horology test. * Mon Mar 23 2009 firstname.lastname@example.org - Security release 8.3.7 * Fixes a vulnerability that allowed remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (stack consumption) via mismatched encoding conversion requests. * Details of the other bugfixes contained in this and previous releases can be found here: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.3/static/release.html /usr/share/doc/packages/postgresql/HISTORY - Users of GiST indexes should "REINDEX" them after installing this update. - Re-added libpgport.a to the devel package, as some apps require it, although it is meant to be internal to the PostgreSQL backend. - Fix removal of leftover files on database startup (bnc#473644).
