Malcolm Tredinnick (malcolm(at)commsecure(dot)com(dot)au) reports a bug with a severity of 2
The lower the number the more severe it is.
Time input format is no longer ISO 8601 compliant
Using PostgreSQL 7.2 on a Red Hat 7.3 system (also fails with PostgreSQL 7.2 on a Red Hat 7.2 system)...
According to the PostgreSQL manual (the section on Date/Time input), it should be possible to enter 'time' fields as "100000" for 10:00:00.
This was certainly possible in 7.1, but it now raises a "Bad time external representation '100000'" error with 7.2. This format is certainly permitted by ISO 8601, so I am suspecting a coding error, rather than some adjustments for standards compliance (if it is the latter, then the documentation needs to be updated).
create table foo (
insert into foo (mydate) values ('100000'); -- fails in PostgreSQL 7.2
insert into foo (mydate) values ('10:00:00'); -- still works in 7.2
