 postgresql-8.2 - object-relational SQL database, version 8.2 server
 postgresql-8.2 (8.2.2-1) experimental; urgency=low
   * New upstream security and bug fix release:
     - Fix security vulnerabilities that allowed connected users to
       read backend memory.
       The vulnerabilities involve suppressing the normal check that a SQL
       function returns the data type it's declared to, and changing the
       data type of a table column (CVE-2007-0555, CVE-2007-0556). These
       errors can easily be exploited to cause a backend crash, and in
       principle might be used to read database content that the user
       should not be able to access.
     - Fix not-so-rare-anymore bug wherein btree index page splits could
       fail due to choosing an infeasible split point.
     - Properly handle to_char('CC') for years ending in 00.
       Year 2000 is in the twentieth century, not the twenty-first.
     - "/contrib/tsearch2" localization improvements.
     - Fix incorrect permission check in information_schema.key_column_usage
       The symptom is "relation with OID nnnnn does not exist" errors. To
       get this fix without using "initdb", use "CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW"
       to install the corrected definition found in
       "share/information_schema.sql". Note you will need to do this in
       each database.
     - Improve "VACUUM" performance for databases with many tables.
     - Fix for rare Assert() crash triggered by UNION.
     - Fix potentially incorrect results from index searches using ROW
       inequality conditions.
     - Tighten security of multi-byte character processing for UTF8
       sequences over three bytes long.
     - Fix possible crashes when an already-in-use PL/pgSQL function is
     - Improve PL/pgSQL handling of domain types.
     - Fix possible errors in processing PL/pgSQL exception blocks.
   * debian/control: postgresql-client-8.2 provides postgresql-client. This
     avoids breaking all the reverse dependencies to p-c when the transitional
     package gets removed.
