E.23. Release 8.2.1

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.24.

E.23.1. Migration to Version 8.2.1

A dump/restore is not required for those running 8.2.

E.23.2. Changes

  • 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.
