Changelog

postgresql-9.0 (9.0.6-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream bug fix release.
    - Fix bugs in information_schema.referential_constraints view.
      This view was being insufficiently careful about matching the
      foreign-key constraint to the depended-on primary or unique key
      constraint. That could result in failure to show a foreign key
      constraint at all, or showing it multiple times, or claiming that
      it depends on a different constraint than the one it really does.
      Since the view definition is installed by initdb, merely upgrading
      will not fix the problem. If you need to fix this in an existing
      installation, you can (as a superuser) drop the information_schema
      schema then re-create it by sourcing
      "SHAREDIR/information_schema.sql". (Run pg_config --sharedir if
      you're uncertain where "SHAREDIR" is.) This must be repeated in
      each database to be fixed.
    - Fix possible crash during "UPDATE" or "DELETE" that joins to the
      output of a scalar-returning function. A crash could only occur if the
      target row had been concurrently updated, so this problem surfaced only
      intermittently.
    - Fix incorrect replay of WAL records for GIN index updates.
      This could result in transiently failing to find index entries
      after a crash, or on a hot-standby server. The problem would be
      repaired by the next "VACUUM" of the index, however.
    - Fix TOAST-related data corruption during CREATE TABLE dest AS
      SELECT - FROM src or INSERT INTO dest SELECT * FROM src.
      If a table has been modified by "ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN", attempts
      to copy its data verbatim to another table could produce corrupt
      results in certain corner cases. The problem can only manifest in
      this precise form in 8.4 and later, but we patched earlier versions
      as well in case there are other code paths that could trigger the
      same bug.
    - Fix possible failures during hot standby startup.
    - Start hot standby faster when initial snapshot is incomplete.
    - Fix race condition during toast table access from stale syscache
      entries. The typical symptom was transient errors like "missing chunk
      number 0 for toast value NNNNN in pg_toast_2619", where the cited toast
      table would always belong to a system catalog.
    - Track dependencies of functions on items used in parameter default
      expressions. Previously, a referenced object could be dropped without
      having dropped or modified the function, leading to misbehavior when the
      function was used. Note that merely installing this update will not fix
      the missing dependency entries; to do that, you'd need to "CREATE OR
      REPLACE" each such function afterwards. If you have functions whose
      defaults depend on non-built-in objects, doing so is recommended.
    - Allow inlining of set-returning SQL functions with multiple OUT
      parameters.
    - Don't trust deferred-unique indexes for join removal.  A deferred
      uniqueness constraint might not hold intra-transaction, so assuming that
      it does could give incorrect query results.
    - Make DatumGetInetP() unpack inet datums that have a 1-byte header,
      and add a new macro, DatumGetInetPP(), that does not.
      This change affects no core code, but might prevent crashes in
      add-on code that expects DatumGetInetP() to produce an unpacked
      datum as per usual convention.
    - Improve locale support in money type's input and output. Aside from not
      supporting all standard lc_monetary formatting options, the input and
      output functions were inconsistent, meaning there were locales in which
      dumped money values could not be re-read.
    - Don't let transform_null_equals affect CASE foo WHEN NULL ...
      constructs.
    - Change foreign-key trigger creation order to better support
      self-referential foreign keys.
      For a cascading foreign key that references its own table, a row
      update will fire both the ON UPDATE trigger and the CHECK trigger
      as one event. The ON UPDATE trigger must execute first, else the
      CHECK will check a non-final state of the row and possibly throw an
      inappropriate error. However, the firing order of these triggers is
      determined by their names, which generally sort in creation order
      since the triggers have auto-generated names following the
      convention "RI_ConstraintTrigger_NNNN". A proper fix would require
      modifying that convention, which we will do in 9.2, but it seems
      risky to change it in existing releases. So this patch just changes
      the creation order of the triggers. Users encountering this type of
      error should drop and re-create the foreign key constraint to get
      its triggers into the right order.
    - Avoid floating-point underflow while tracking buffer allocation
      rate.
    - Fix incorrect field alignment in ecpg's SQLDA area.
    - Preserve blank lines within commands in psql's command history.
      The former behavior could cause problems if an empty line was
      removed from within a string literal, for example.
    - Fix pg_dump to dump user-defined casts between auto-generated
      types, such as table rowtypes.
    - Assorted fixes for pg_upgrade. Handle exclusion constraints correctly,
      don't complain about mismatched toast table names in 8.4 databases.
    - Use the preferred version of xsubpp to build PL/Perl, not
      necessarily the operating system's main copy.
    - Fix incorrect coding in "contrib/dict_int" and "contrib/dict_xsyn".
    - Fix assorted errors in "contrib/unaccent"'s configuration file
      parsing.
    - Honor query cancel interrupts promptly in pgstatindex().
    - Ensure VPATH builds properly install all server header files.
    - Shorten file names reported in verbose error messages.
      Regular builds have always reported just the name of the C file
      containing the error message call, but VPATH builds formerly
      reported an absolute path name.
