 postgresql-8.2 (8.2.6-0ubuntu0.7.04) feisty-proposed; urgency=low
   * New upstream security/bugfix release:
     - Prevent functions in indexes from executing with the privileges of
       the user running "VACUUM", "ANALYZE", etc. "SET ROLE" is now forbidden
       within a SECURITY DEFINER context. [CVE-2007-6600]
     - Suitably crafted regular-expression patterns could cause crashes,
       infinite or near-infinite looping, and/or massive memory
       consumption, all of which pose denial-of-service hazards for
       applications that accept regex search patterns from untrustworthy
       sources. [CVE-2007-4769, CVE-2007-4772, CVE-2007-6067]
     - Require non-superusers who use "/contrib/dblink" to use only
       password authentication, as a security measure.
       The fix that appeared for this in 8.2.5 was incomplete, as it
       plugged the hole for only some "dblink" functions. [CVE-2007-6601,
     - Fix bugs in WAL replay for GIN indexes.
     - Fix GIN index build to work properly when maintenance_work_mem is
       4GB or more.
     - Improve planner's handling of LIKE/regex estimation in non-C
     - Fix planning-speed problem for deep outer-join nests, as well as
       possible poor choice of join order.
     - Fix planner failure in some cases of WHERE false AND var IN (SELECT
       not change the currval() state of the sequence.
     - Preserve the tablespace and storage parameters of indexes that are
       rebuilt by "ALTER TABLE ... ALTER COLUMN TYPE".
     - Make archive recovery always start a new WAL timeline, rather than
       only when a recovery stop time was used. This avoids a corner-case risk
       of trying to overwrite an existing archived copy of the last WAL
       segment, and seems simpler and cleaner than the original definition.
     - Make "VACUUM" not use all of maintenance_work_mem when the table is
       too small for it to be useful.
     - Fix potential crash in translate() when using a multibyte database
     - Make corr() return the correct result for negative correlation
     - Fix overflow in extract(epoch from interval) for intervals
       exceeding 68 years.
     - Fix PL/Perl to not fail when a UTF-8 regular expression is used in
       a trusted function.
     - Fix PL/Python to work correctly with Python 2.5 on 64-bit machines
       (Marko Kreen)
     - Fix PL/Python to not crash on long exception messages.
     - Fix pg_dump to correctly handle inheritance child tables that have
       default expressions different from their parent's.
     - Fix libpq crash when PGPASSFILE refers to a file that is not a
       plain file.
     - ecpg parser fixes.
     - Make "contrib/tablefunc"'s crosstab() handle NULL rowid as a
       category in its own right, rather than crashing.
     - Fix tsvector and tsquery output routines to escape backslashes
       correctly. (LP: #146382)
     - Fix crash of to_tsvector() on huge input strings.
