postgresql-8.3 8.3.22-0ubuntu8.04 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

postgresql-8.3 (8.3.22-0ubuntu8.04) hardy-proposed; urgency=low

  * New upstream bug fix release: (LP: #1088393)
    - Fix multiple bugs associated with "CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY".
      Fix "CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY" to use in-place updates when
      changing the state of an index's pg_index row. This prevents race
      conditions that could cause concurrent sessions to miss updating
      the target index, thus resulting in corrupt concurrently-created
      indexes.
      Also, fix various other operations to ensure that they ignore
      invalid indexes resulting from a failed "CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY"
      command. The most important of these is "VACUUM", because an
      auto-vacuum could easily be launched on the table before corrective
      action can be taken to fix or remove the invalid index.
    - See HISTORY/changelog.gz for details about the other bug fixes.

libpq-dev: header files for libpq5 (PostgreSQL library)

 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: object-relational SQL database (latest version)

 PostgreSQL is a fully featured object-relational database management
 system. It supports a large part of the SQL standard and is designed
 to be extensible by users in many aspects. Some of the features are:
 ACID transactions, foreign keys, views, sequences, subqueries,
 triggers, user-defined types and functions, outer joins, multiversion
 concurrency control. Graphical user interfaces and bindings for many
 programming languages are available as well.
 .
 This package always depends on the latest available database server
 for PostgreSQL.

postgresql-8.3: object-relational SQL database, version 8.3 server

 PostgreSQL is a fully featured object-relational database management
 system. It supports a large part of the SQL standard and is designed

 triggers, user-defined types and functions, outer joins, multiversion
 concurrency control. Graphical user interfaces and bindings for many
 programming languages are available as well.
 .
 This package provides the database server for PostgreSQL 8.3. Servers
 for other major release versions can be installed simultaneously and
 are coordinated by the postgresql-common package. A package providing
 ident-server is needed if you want to authenticate remote connections
 with identd.

postgresql-client: front-end programs for PostgreSQL (latest version)

 This package contains client and administrative programs for
 PostgreSQL: these are the interactive terminal client psql and
 programs for creating and removing users and databases.
 .
 This package always depends on the latest available database client
 package for PostgreSQL. If you install PostgreSQL on a standalone
 machine, you need the server package postgresql, too. On a network,
 you can install this package on many client machines, while the
 server package may be installed on only one machine.
