E.252. Release 6.3.1

Release Date: 1998-03-23

Summary:

  • Additional support for multibyte character sets.

  • Repair byte ordering for mixed-endian clients and servers.

  • Minor updates to allowed SQL syntax.

  • Improvements to the configuration autodetection for installation.

A dump/restore is NOT required for those running 6.3. A make distclean, make, and make install is all that is required. This last step should be performed while the postmaster is not running. You should re-link any custom applications that use PostgreSQL libraries.

For upgrades from pre-6.3 installations, refer to the installation and migration instructions for version 6.3.
