Release Date: 2007-01-08
This release contains a variety of fixes from 8.2. For information about new features in the 8.2 major release, see Section E.158.
A dump/restore is not required for those running 8.2.
Fix crash with SELECT ... LIMIT ALL (also LIMIT NULL) (Tom)
Several /contrib/tsearch2 fixes (Teodor)
On Windows, make log messages coming from the operating system use ASCII encoding (Hiroshi Saito)
This fixes a conversion problem when there is a mismatch between the encoding of the operating system and database server.
Fix Windows linking of pg_dump using win32.mak (Hiroshi Saito)
Fix planner mistakes for outer join queries (Tom)
Fix several problems in queries involving sub-SELECTs (Tom)
Fix potential crash in SPI during subtransaction abort (Tom)
This affects all PL functions since they all use SPI.
Improve build speed of PDF documentation (Peter)
Re-add JST (Japan) timezone abbreviation (Tom)
Improve optimization decisions related to index scans (Tom)
Have psql print multi-byte combining characters as before, rather than output as \u (Tom)
Improve index usage of regular expressions that use parentheses (Tom)
This improves psql \d performance also.
Make pg_dumpall assume that databases have public CONNECT privilege, when dumping from a pre-8.2 server (Tom)
This preserves the previous behavior that anyone can connect to a database if allowed by pg_hba.conf.
