New point releases 7.3.11, 7.4.9 and 8.0.4

Posted on Oct. 5, 2005

In order to address several issues identified since our last Point Releases, we have just released the following new versions of PostgreSQL: 7.3.11, 7.4.9 and 8.0.4.

A few of the more prominent fixes across all three versions are:

  • Fix error that allowed "VACUUM" to remove ctid chains too soon

  • Fix missing rows in queries like UPDATE a=... WHERE a... with GiST index on column a

  • Improve checking for partially-written WAL pages

  • Various memory leakage fixes

For a complete list of fixes in each release, please see the HISTORY file.

These Point Releases do not require a dump/reload from the previous Point, but *may* require one if upgrading from an earlier version. Please see the Release Notes to confirm procedures for upgrading if your current version is older then 1 Point Release.
