|Views:||Raw Message | Whole Thread | Download mbox|
In order to address a potentially critical bug in the VACUUM code, the
PostgreSQL Global Development Group is releasing v7.2.3 of PostgreSQL.
This release includes a fix for a serious problem that has affected all
7.2.* releases: if a VACUUM command is run by a non-superuser, it is
sometimes possible for the system to prematurely remove old transaction
log data (pg_clog files). This can result in data becoming unrecoverable.
All 7.2.* installations are urged to update to 7.2.3 as soon as possible.
Other changes include;
Prevent non-superuser from increasing most recent vacuum info (Tom)
Handle pre-1970 date values in newer versions of glibc (Tom)
Fix possible hang during server shutdown
Prevent spinlock hangs on SMP PPC machines (Tomoyuki Niijima)
Fix pg_dump to properly dump FULL JOIN USING (Tom)
This new release is available on all standard mirrors, or at the main ftp
Any bug reports concerning this release should be reported to
Marc G. Fournier
