E.111.2. Changes

  • Improve handling of getaddrinfo() on AIX (Tom)

    This fixes a problem with starting the statistics collector, among other things.

  • Fix « failed to re-find parent key » errors in VACUUM (Tom)

  • Fix race condition for truncation of a large relation across a gigabyte boundary by VACUUM (Tom)

  • Fix bugs affecting multi-gigabyte hash indexes (Tom)

  • Fix possible deadlock in Windows signal handling (Teodor)

  • Fix error when constructing an ARRAY[] made up of multiple empty elements (Tom)

  • Fix ecpg memory leak during connection (Michael)

  • to_number() and to_char(numeric) are now STABLE, not IMMUTABLE, for new initdb installs (Tom)

    This is because lc_numeric can potentially change the output of these functions.

  • Improve index usage of regular expressions that use parentheses (Tom)

    This improves psql \d performance also.

  • Update timezone database

    This affects Australian and Canadian daylight-savings rules in particular.
