   * New upstream bugfix release (please note that 8.1.12 was never released,
     due to the discovery of another major bug):
      - Make "ALTER AGGREGATE ... OWNER TO" update pg_shdepend.
        This oversight could lead to problems if the aggregate was later
        involved in a "DROP OWNED" or "REASSIGN OWNED" operation.
      - Fix "ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN ... PRIMARY KEY" so that the new column
        is correctly checked to see if it's been initialized to all
        non-nulls. Previous versions neglected to check this requirement at
      - Fix possible "CREATE TABLE" failure when inheriting the "same"
        constraint from multiple parent relations that inherited that
        constraint from a common ancestor.
      - Fix conversions between ISO-8859-5 and other encodings to handle
        Cyrillic "Yo" characters (e and E with two dots).
      - Fix a few datatype input functions that were allowing unused bytes
        in their results to contain uninitialized, unpredictable values.
        This could lead to failures in which two apparently identical
        literal values were not seen as equal, resulting in the parser
        complaining about unmatched ORDER BY and DISTINCT expressions.
      - Fix a corner case in regular-expression substring matching.
      - Fix incorrect result from ecpg's PGTYPEStimestamp_sub() function.
      - Fix core dump in "contrib/xml2"'s xpath_table() function when the
        input query returns a NULL value.
      - Fix longstanding "LISTEN"/"NOTIFY" race condition.
        In rare cases a session that had just executed a "LISTEN" might not
        get a notification, even though one would be expected because the
        concurrent transaction executing "NOTIFY" was observed to commit
        A side effect of the fix is that a transaction that has executed a
        not-yet-committed "LISTEN" command will not see any row in
        pg_listener for the "LISTEN", should it choose to look; formerly it
        would have. This behavior was never documented one way or the
        other, but it is possible that some applications depend on the old
      - Disallow "LISTEN" and "UNLISTEN" within a prepared transaction.
        This was formerly allowed but trying to do it had various
        unpleasant consequences, notably that the originating backend could
        not exit as long as an "UNLISTEN" remained uncommitted.
      - Fix rare crash when an error occurs during a query using a hash
      - Fix input of datetime values for February 29 in years BC.
        The former coding was mistaken about which years were leap years.
      - Fix "unrecognized node type" error in some variants of "ALTER
      - Fix pg_ctl to correctly extract the postmaster's port number from
        command-line options.
        Previously, pg_ctl start -w could try to contact the postmaster on
        the wrong port, leading to bogus reports of startup failure.
      - Fix display of constant expressions in ORDER BY and GROUP BY.
        An explictly casted constant would be shown incorrectly. This could
        for example lead to corruption of a view definition during dump and
      - Fix libpq to handle NOTICE messages correctly during COPY OUT.
        This failure has only been observed to occur when a user-defined
        datatype's output routine issues a NOTICE, but there is no
        guarantee it couldn't happen due to other causes.
