postgresql-8.3 8.3.1-1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

postgresql-8.3 (8.3.1-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream bugfix release:
    - Repair corner-case bugs in "VACUUM FULL".
    - Fix misbehavior of foreign key checks involving character or bit
      columns.
    - Avoid needless deadlock failures in no-op foreign-key checks.
    - Fix possible core dump when re-planning a prepared query.
    - Fix possible failure when re-planning a query that calls an
      SPI-using function.
    - Fix failure in row-wise comparisons involving columns of different
      datatypes.
    - Fix longstanding "LISTEN"/"NOTIFY" race condition.
    - Disallow "LISTEN" and "UNLISTEN" within a prepared transaction
      This was formerly allowed but trying to do it had various
      unpleasant consequences, notably that the originating backend could
      not exit as long as an "UNLISTEN" remained uncommitted.
    - Disallow dropping a temporary table within a prepared transaction
      This was correctly disallowed by 8.1, but the check was
      inadvertently broken in 8.2 and 8.3.
    - Fix rare crash when an error occurs during a query using a hash
      index.
    - Fix incorrect comparison of tsquery values.
    - Fix incorrect behavior of LIKE with non-ASCII characters in
      single-byte encodings. (Closes: #469180)
    - Disable xmlvalidate. This function should have been removed before 8.3
      release, but was inadvertently left in the source code. It poses a small
      security risk since unprivileged users could use it to read the first
      few characters of any file accessible to the server.
    - Fix memory leaks in certain usages of set-returning functions.
    - Make encode(bytea, 'escape') convert all high-bit-set byte values
      into \"nnn" octal escape sequences.
      This is necessary to avoid encoding problems when the database
      encoding is multi-byte. This change could pose compatibility issues
      for applications that are expecting specific results from encode.
    - Fix input of datetime values for February 29 in years BC.
      The former coding was mistaken about which years were leap years.
    . Fix "unrecognized node type" error in some variants of "ALTER
      OWNER".
    - Avoid tablespace permissions errors in "CREATE TABLE LIKE INCLUDING
      INDEXES".
    - Ensure pg_stat_activity.waiting flag is cleared when a lock wait is
      aborted.
    - Fix ecpg problems with arrays.
    - Fix pg_ctl to correctly extract the postmaster's port number from
      command-line options. Previously, pg_ctl start -w could try to contact
      the postmaster on the wrong port, leading to bogus reports of startup
      failure. (Closes: #358546)
    - Use "-fwrapv" to defend against possible misoptimization in recent
      gcc versions (4.3 and later).
  * debian/postgresql-8.3.init:
    - Remove erroneous 'S' from Should-Stop.
    - Require $remote_fs for startup, since postgresql needs /usr.
    - Thanks to Petter Reinholdtsen!
    - (Closes: #470935)
