Changelog

postgresql-8.3 (8.3.21-0ubuntu8.04) hardy-proposed; urgency=low

  * New upstream bug fix release: (LP: #1055944)
    - Improve page-splitting decisions in GiST indexes.
      Multi-column GiST indexes might suffer unexpected bloat due to this
      error.
    - Fix cascading privilege revoke to stop if privileges are still held.
      If we revoke a grant option from some role "X", but "X" still holds
      that option via a grant from someone else, we should not
      recursively revoke the corresponding privilege from role(s) "Y"
      that "X" had granted it to.
    - Fix handling of SIGFPE when PL/Perl is in use.
      Perl resets the process's SIGFPE handler to SIG_IGN, which could
      result in crashes later on. Restore the normal Postgres signal
      handler after initializing PL/Perl.
    - Prevent PL/Perl from crashing if a recursive PL/Perl function is
      redefined while being executed.
    - Work around possible misoptimization in PL/Perl.
      Some Linux distributions contain an incorrect version of
      "pthread.h" that results in incorrect compiled code in PL/Perl,
      leading to crashes if a PL/Perl function calls another one that
      throws an error.
