Summary: The PL/Python Procedural Languages for PostgreSQL
PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system
that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including
transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, and user-defined
types and functions.

This package contains the PL/Python procedural language for PostgreSQL.
With this module one can use Python to write stored procedures,
functions, and triggers.

* Thu May 27 2010
  - Security and bugfix release 8.4.4:
    * Enforce restrictions in plperl using an opmask applied to the
      whole interpreter, instead of using Recent
      developments have convinced us that is too insecure to
      rely on for making plperl trustable. This change removes use of altogether, in favor of using a separate interpreter
      with an opcode mask that is always applied. Pleasant side
      effects of the change include that it is now possible to use
      Perl's strict pragma in a natural way in plperl, and that
      Perl's $a and $b variables work as expected in sort routines,
      and that function compilation is significantly
      faster. (CVE-2010-1169)
    * Prevent PL/Tcl from executing untrustworthy code from
      pltcl_modules.  PL/Tcl's feature for autoloading Tcl code from
      a database table could be exploited for trojan-horse attacks,
      because there was no restriction on who could create or insert
      into that table. This change disables the feature unless
      pltcl_modules is owned by a superuser. (However, the
      permissions on the table are not checked, so installations that
      really need a less-than-secure modules table can still grant
      suitable privileges to trusted non-superusers.) Also, prevent
      loading code into the unrestricted "normal" Tcl interpreter
      unless we are really going to execute a pltclu
      function. (CVE-2010-1170)
    * Fix data corruption during WAL replay of ALTER ... SET
      TABLESPACE.  When archive_mode is on, ALTER ... SET TABLESPACE
      generates a WAL record whose replay logic was incorrect. It
      could write the data to the wrong place, leading to
      possibly-unrecoverable data corruption. Data corruption would
      be observed on standby slaves, and could occur on the master as
      well if a database crash and recovery occurred after committing
      the ALTER and before the next checkpoint.
    * Fix possible crash if a cache reset message is received during
      rebuild of a relcache entry. This error was introduced in 8.4.3
      while fixing a related failure.
    * Apply per-function GUC settings while running the language
      validator for the function.
    * This avoids failures if the function's code is invalid without
      the setting; an example is that SQL functions may not parse if
      the search_path is not correct.
    * Do constraint exclusion for inherited UPDATE and DELETE target
      tables when constraint_exclusion = partition. Due to an
      oversight, this setting previously only caused constraint
      exclusion to be checked in SELECT commands.
    * Do not allow an unprivileged user to reset superuser-only
      parameter settings.  Previously, if an unprivileged user ran
      ALTER USER ... RESET ALL for himself, or ALTER DATABASE
      ... RESET ALL for a database he owns, this would remove all
      special parameter settings for the user or database, even ones
      that are only supposed to be changeable by a superuser. Now,
      the ALTER will only remove the parameters that the user has
      permission to change.
    * Avoid possible crash during backend shutdown if shutdown occurs
      when a CONTEXT addition would be made to log entries.  In some
      cases the context-printing function would fail because the
      current transaction had already been rolled back when it came
      time to print a log message.
    * Fix erroneous handling of %r parameter in recovery_end_command.
      The value always came out zero.
    * Ensure the archiver process responds to changes in
      archive_command as soon as possible.
    * Fix pl/pgsql's CASE statement to not fail when the case
      expression is a query that returns no rows.
    * Update pl/perl's ppport.h for modern Perl versions.
    * Fix assorted memory leaks in pl/python.
    * Handle empty-string connect parameters properly in ecpg.
    * Prevent infinite recursion in psql when expanding a variable
      that refers to itself.
    * Fix psql's \copy to not add spaces around a dot within \copy
      (select ...). Addition of spaces around the decimal point in a
      numeric literal would result in a syntax error.
    * Avoid formatting failure in psql when running in a locale
      context that doesn't match the client_encoding.
    * Fix unnecessary "GIN indexes do not support whole-index scans"
      errors for unsatisfiable queries using contrib/intarray
    * Ensure that contrib/pgstattuple functions respond to cancel
      interrupts promptly.
    * Make server startup deal properly with the case that shmget()
      returns EINVAL for an existing shared memory segment.
      This behavior has been observed on BSD-derived kernels
      including OS X. It resulted in an entirely-misleading startup
      failure complaining that the shared memory request size was too

* Wed Dec 16 2009
  - Security and bugfix release 8.4.2:
    * CVE-2009-4136: Protect against indirect security threats
      caused by index functions changing session-local state. This
      change prevents allegedly-immutable index functions from
      possibly subverting a superuser's session.
    * CVE-2009-4034: Reject SSL certificates containing an embedded
      null byte in the common name (CN) field. This prevents
      unintended matching of a certificate to a server or client
      name during SSL validation.
    * Fix hash index corruption. The 8.4 change that made hash
      indexes keep entries sorted by hash value failed to update the
      bucket splitting and compaction routines to preserve the
      ordering. So application of either of those operations could
      lead to permanent corruption of an index, in the sense that
      searches might fail to find entries that are present. To deal
      with this, it is recommended to REINDEX any hash indexes you
      may have after installing this update.
    * Fix possible crash during backend-startup-time cache
    * Avoid crash on empty thesaurus dictionary
    * Prevent signals from interrupting VACUUM at unsafe times. This
    fix prevents a PANIC if a VACUUM FULL is cancelled after it's
    already committed its tuple movements, as well as transient
    errors if a plain VACUUM is interrupted after having truncated
    the table.
    * Fix possible crash due to integer overflow in hash table size
    calculation. This could occur with extremely large planner
    estimates for the size of a hashjoin's result.
    * Fix crash if a DROP is attempted on an internally-dependent
    * Fix very rare crash in inet/cidr comparisons.
    * Ensure that shared tuple-level locks held by prepared
    transactions are not ignored.
    * Fix premature drop of temporary files used for a cursor that is
    accessed within a subtransaction.
    * Fix memory leak in syslogger process when rotating to a new CSV
    * Fix memory leak in postmaster when re-parsing "pg_hba.conf".
    * Make FOR UPDATE/SHARE in the primary query not propagate into
    WITH queries.
    * Fix bug with a WITH RECURSIVE query immediately inside another
    * Fix concurrency bug in hash indexes. Concurrent insertions
    could cause index scans to transiently report wrong results.
    * Fix incorrect logic for GiST index page splits, when the split
    depends on a non-first column of the index.
    * Fix wrong search results for a multi-column GIN index with
    fastupdate enabled.
    * Fix bugs in WAL entry creation for GIN indexes. These bugs were
    masked when full_page_writes was on, but with it off a WAL
    replay failure was certain if a crash occurred before the next
    * Don't error out if recycling or removing an old WAL file fails
    at the end of checkpoint. It's better to treat the problem as
    non-fatal and allow the checkpoint to complete. Future
    checkpoints will retry the removal. Such problems are not
    expected in normal operation, but have been seen to be caused
    by misdesigned Windows anti-virus and backup software.
    * Ensure WAL files aren't repeatedly archived on Windows. This is
    another symptom that could happen if some other process
    interfered with deletion of a no-longer-needed file.
    * Fix PAM password processing to be more robust.  The previous
    code is known to fail with the combination of the Linux
    pam_krb5 PAM module with Microsoft Active Directory as the
    domain controller. It might have problems elsewhere too, since
    it was making unjustified assumptions about what arguments the
    PAM stack would pass to it.
    * Raise the maximum authentication token (Kerberos ticket) size
    in GSSAPI and SSPI authentication methods.  While the old
    2000-byte limit was more than enough for Unix Kerberos
    implementations, tickets issued by Windows Domain Controllers
    can be much larger.
    * Ensure that domain constraints are enforced in constructs like
    ARRAY[...]::domain, where the domain is over an array type.
    * Fix foreign-key logic for some cases involving composite-type
    columns as foreign keys.
    * Ensure that a cursor's snapshot is not modified after it is
    created. This could lead to a cursor delivering wrong results
    if later operations in the same transaction modify the data the
    cursor is supposed to return.
    * Fix CREATE TABLE to properly merge default expressions coming
    from different inheritance parent tables. This used to work but
    was broken in 8.4.
    * Re-enable collection of access statistics for sequences. This
    used to work but was broken in 8.3.
    * Fix processing of ownership dependencies during CREATE OR REPLACE
    * Fix incorrect handling of WHERE "x"="x" conditions.  In some cases
    these could get ignored as redundant, but they aren't -- they're
    equivalent to "x" IS NOT NULL.
    * Fix incorrect plan construction when using hash aggregation to
    implement DISTINCT for textually identical volatile
    * Fix Assert failure for a volatile SELECT DISTINCT ON expression.
    * Fix ts_stat() to not fail on an empty tsvector value.
    * Make text search parser accept underscores in XML attributes.
    * Fix encoding handling in xml binary input. If the XML header
    doesn't specify an encoding, we now assume UTF-8 by default;
    the previous handling was inconsistent.
    * Fix bug with calling plperl from plperlu or vice versa. An
    error exit from the inner function could result in crashes due
    to failure to re-select the correct Perl interpreter for the
    outer function.
    * Fix session-lifespan memory leak when a PL/Perl function is
    * Ensure that Perl arrays are properly converted to PostgreSQL
    arrays when returned by a set-returning PL/Perl function. This
    worked correctly already for non-set-returning functions.
    * Fix rare crash in exception processing in PL/Python.
    * Fix ecpg problem with comments in DECLARE CURSOR statements.
    * Fix ecpg to not treat recently-added keywords as reserved
    words.  This affected the keywords CALLED, CATALOG, DEFINER,
    * Re-allow regular expression special characters in psql's \df
    function name parameter.
    * In "contrib/pg_standby", disable triggering failover with a
    signal on Windows. This never did anything useful, because
    Windows doesn't have Unix-style signals, but recent changes
    made it actually crash.
    * Put FREEZE and VERBOSE options in the right order in the VACUUM
    command that "contrib/vacuumdb" produces.
    * Fix possible leak of connections when "contrib/dblink"
    encounters an error.
    * Ensure psql's flex module is compiled with the correct system
    header definitions.  This fixes build failures on platforms
    where --enable-largefile causes incompatible changes in the
    generated code.
    * Make the postmaster ignore any application_name parameter in
    connection request packets, to improve compatibility with
    future libpq versions.
    * Update the timezone abbreviation files to match current reality
    This includes adding IDT to the default timezone abbreviation

  - Security and bugfix release 8.4.1:
    * Fix WAL page header initialization at the end of archive
      recovery. This could lead to failure to process the WAL in a
      subsequent archive recovery.
    * Fix "cannot make new WAL entries during recovery" error.
    * Fix problem that could make expired rows visible after a crash.
      This bug involved a page status bit potentially not being set
      correctly after a server crash.
      security-definer functions. This covers a case that was missed
      in the previous patch that disallowed SET ROLE and SET SESSION
      AUTHORIZATION inside security-definer functions.
      (See CVE-2007-6600)
    * Make LOAD of an already-loaded loadable module into a no-op.
    * Formerly, LOAD would attempt to unload and re-load the module,
      but this is unsafe and not all that useful.
    * Make window function PARTITION BY and ORDER BY items always be
      interpreted as simple expressions. In 8.4.0 these lists were
      parsed following the rules used for top-level GROUP BY and
      ORDER BY lists. But this was not correct per the SQL standard,
      and it led to possible circularity.
    * Fix several errors in planning of semi-joins.  These led to
      wrong query results in some cases where IN or EXISTS was used
      together with another join.
    * Fix handling of whole-row references to subqueries that are
      within an outer join. An example is SELECT COUNT(ss.*) FROM
      ... LEFT JOIN (SELECT ...) ss ON .... Here, ss.* would be
      treated as ROW(NULL,NULL,...) for null-extended join rows,
      which is not the same as a simple NULL. Now it is treated as a
      simple NULL.
    * Fix Windows shared-memory allocation code.  This bug led to the
      often-reported "could not reattach to shared memory" error
    * Fix locale handling with plperl.
      This bug could cause the server's locale setting to change when
      a plperl function is called, leading to data corruption.
    * Fix handling of reloptions to ensure setting one option doesn't
      force default values for others.
    * Ensure that a "fast shutdown" request will forcibly terminate
      open sessions, even if a "smart shutdown" was already in
    * Avoid memory leak for array_agg() in GROUP BY queries.
    * Treat to_char(..., 'TH') as an uppercase ordinal suffix with
    'HH'/'HH12'. It was previously handled as 'th' (lowercase).
    * Include the fractional part in the result of EXTRACT(second)
      and EXTRACT(milliseconds) for time and time with time zone
      This has always worked for floating-point datetime
      configurations, but was broken in the integer datetime code.
    * Fix overflow for INTERVAL 'x ms' when x is more than 2 million
      and integer datetimes are in use.
    * Improve performance when processing toasted values in index
      scans. This is particularly useful for PostGIS.
    * Fix a typo that disabled commit_delay.
    * Output early-startup messages to postmaster.log if the server
      is started in silent mode.  Previously such error messages were
      discarded, leading to difficulty in debugging.
    * Remove translated FAQs. They are now on the wiki. The main FAQ
      was moved to the wiki some time ago.
    * Fix pg_ctl to not go into an infinite loop if postgresql.conf
      is empty.
    * Fix several errors in pg_dump's --binary-upgrade mode.
    * pg_dump --binary-upgrade is used by pg_migrator.
    * Fix contrib/xml2's xslt_process() to properly handle the
      maximum number of parameters (twenty).
    * Improve robustness of libpq's code to recover from errors
      during COPY FROM STDIN.
    * Avoid including conflicting readline and editline header files
      when both libraries are installed.
    * Work around gcc bug that causes "floating-point exception"
      instead of "division by zero" on some platforms.
* Mon Jul 27 2009
  - postgresql-8.4.0-sle10-timestamptz.patch added, and applied
    _only_ on SLE10. It fixes a build failure due to a test case that
    seems to be confused by daylight saving time in the time zone
    that the test expects its result (PDT vs. PST). Since this
    failure happened only on SLE10, I assume that the test case isn't
    broken, and some peculiarity on that (rather old now) platform is
    to blame (possibly too old timezone files). Also, the testcase is
    checking correctness when converting timezones > 32 bit, which
    actually seems to work.
* Wed Jul 15 2009
  - replace "ident sameuser" with "ident" as auth method for the
    initdb call in the init script, because the former doesn't work
    with PostgreSQL 8.4. With the generated pg_hba.conf, PostgreSQL
    failed to start. Added note to the upgrade READMEs. [bnc#522375]
* Tue Jul 07 2009
  - New major release: 8.4.0
  - Improvements include:
    * Windowing Functions
    * Common Table Expressions and Recursive Queries
    * Default and variadic parameters for functions
    * Parallel Restore
    * Column Permissions
    * Per-database locale settings
    * Improved hash indexes
    * Improved join performance for EXISTS and NOT EXISTS queries
    * Easier-to-use Warm Standby
    * Automatic sizing of the Free Space Map
    * Visibility Map (greatly reduces vacuum overhead for
      slowly-changing tables)
    * Version-aware psql (backslash commands work against older
    * Support SSL certificates for user authentication
    * Per-function runtime statistics
    * Easy editing of functions in psql
    * New contrib modules: pg_stat_statements, auto_explain, citext,
* Wed May 06 2009
  - Remove dependency on local posixrules from horology test.
* Mon Mar 23 2009
  - Security release 8.3.7
    * Fixes a vulnerability that allowed remote authenticated
      users to cause a denial of service (stack consumption)
      via mismatched encoding conversion requests.
    * Details of the other bugfixes contained in this and
      previous releases can be found here:
  - Users of GiST indexes should "REINDEX" them after installing
    this update.
  - Re-added libpgport.a to the devel package, as some apps require
    it, although it is meant to be internal to the PostgreSQL
  - Fix removal of leftover files on database startup (bnc#473644).
