postgresql-12 12.6-0ubuntu0.20.10.1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

postgresql-12 (12.6-0ubuntu0.20.10.1) groovy-security; urgency=medium

  * New upstream version (LP: #1915254)
    + Fix incorrect detection of concurrent page splits while inserting
      into a GiST index (Heikki Linnakangas)

      Concurrent insertions could lead to a corrupt index with entries
      placed in the wrong pages.  It's recommended to reindex any GiST
      index that's been subject to concurrent insertions.

    + Fix CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY to wait for concurrent prepared
      transactions (Andrey Borodin)

      At the point where CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY waits for all concurrent
      transactions to complete so that it can see rows they inserted, it
      must also wait for all prepared transactions to complete, for the
      same reason.  Its failure to do so meant that rows inserted by
      prepared transactions might be omitted from the new index, causing
      queries relying on the index to miss such rows. In installations that
      have enabled prepared transactions (max_prepared_transactions > 0),
      it's recommended to reindex any concurrently-built indexes in case
      this problem occurred when they were built.

    + Fix information leakage in constraint-violation error messages
      (Heikki Linnakangas)

      If an UPDATE command attempts to move a row to a different partition
      but finds that it violates some constraint on the new partition, and
      the columns in that partition are in different physical positions
      than in the parent table, the error message could reveal the contents
      of columns that the user does not have SELECT privilege on.
      (CVE-2021-3393)

 Header files and static library for compiling C programs to link
 with the libpq library in order to communicate with a PostgreSQL
 database backend.
 .
 PostgreSQL is an object-relational SQL database management system.

libpq5: PostgreSQL C client library

 libpq is a C library that enables user programs to communicate with
 the PostgreSQL database server. The server can be on another machine
 and accessed through TCP/IP. This version of libpq is compatible
 with servers from PostgreSQL 8.2 or later.
 .
 This package contains the run-time library, needed by packages using
 libpq.
 .

postgresql-12: object-relational SQL database, version 12 server

 PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database
 system. It is fully ACID compliant, has full support for foreign
 keys, joins, views, triggers, and stored procedures (in multiple
 languages). It includes most SQL:2008 data types, including INTEGER,
 NUMERIC, BOOLEAN, CHAR, VARCHAR, DATE, INTERVAL, and TIMESTAMP. It
 also supports storage of binary large objects, including pictures,
 sounds, or video. It has native programming interfaces for C/C++,
 Java, .Net, Perl, Python, Ruby, Tcl, ODBC, among others, and
 exceptional documentation.
 .
 This package provides the database server for PostgreSQL 12.

 PostgreSQL 12 on a standalone machine, you need the server package
 postgresql-12, too. On a network, you can install this package on
 many client machines, while the server package may be installed on
 only one machine.
