The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released the minor update versions updating all current and recent versions of PostgreSQL, including 8.2, 8.1, 8.0, 7.4 and 7.3. The primary fix in these versions is updating PostgreSQL for the upcoming New Zealand time zone change; users in that country are urged to update their database servers immediately. Other users are encouraged to update their installations at their earliest convenience.
Additional fixes contained in this release include minor security fixes for dblink and pgstattuple, a potential index-corruption issue with vacuum, fixes for GIN indexing, and logging improvements. For a full list of fixes contained in the release, see the release notes.
The PGDG urges all users, in New Zealand or otherwise, to update ther servers as soon as possible. PostgreSQL users should always run the latest minor release of their major PostgreSQL version. The first two digits of your PostgreSQL version are the major version, and the last digit is the minor (or "patch") release.
Those latest versions are now:
No dump & reload or additional steps are required for those upgrading from any recent minor release. For users upgrading from much older minor releases, please read the release notes..
Source code and binaries for some platforms are available from our download page.
