E.102. Release 8.0.19

[Note]

Release Date

2008-11-03

This release contains a variety of fixes from 8.0.18. For information about new features in the 8.0 major release, see Section E.121, « Release 8.0 ».

E.102.1. Migration to Version 8.0.19

A dump/restore is not required for those running 8.0.X. However, if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 8.0.6, see Section E.115, « Release 8.0.6 ».

E.102.2. Changes

  • Fix backend crash when the client encoding cannot represent a localized error message (Tom)

    We have addressed similar issues before, but it would still fail if the « character has no equivalent » message itself couldn't be converted. The fix is to disable localization and send the plain ASCII error message when we detect such a situation.

  • Fix possible crash when deeply nested functions are invoked from a trigger (Tom)

  • Ensure an error is reported when a newly-defined PL/pgSQL trigger function is invoked as a normal function (Tom)

  • Fix incorrect tsearch2 headline generation when single query item matches first word of text (Sushant Sinha)

  • Fix improper display of fractional seconds in interval values when using a non-ISO datestyle in an --enable-integer-datetimes build (Ron Mayer)

  • Ensure SPI_getvalue and SPI_getbinval behave correctly when the passed tuple and tuple descriptor have different numbers of columns (Tom)

    This situation is normal when a table has had columns added or removed, but these two functions didn't handle it properly. The only likely consequence is an incorrect error indication.

  • Fix ecpg's parsing of CREATE USER (Michael)

  • Fix recent breakage of pg_ctl restart (Tom)

  • Update time zone data files to tzdata release 2008i (for DST law changes in Argentina, Brazil, Mauritius, Syria)
