 postgresql-8.3 (8.3.3-0ubuntu0.8.04) hardy-proposed; urgency=low
   * New upstream bugfix release (note that 8.3.2 was never officially released
     due to the discovery of another major bug):
     - Make pg_get_ruledef() parenthesize negative constants.
       Before this fix, a negative constant in a view or rule might be
       dumped as, say, -42::integer, which is subtly incorrect: it should
       be (-42)::integer due to operator precedence rules. Usually this
       would make little difference, but it could interact with another
       recent patch to cause PostgreSQL to reject what had been a valid
       "SELECT DISTINCT" view query. Since this could result in pg_dump
       output failing to reload, it is being treated as a high-priority
       fix. The only released versions in which dump output is actually
       incorrect are 8.3.1 and 8.2.7.
     - 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 incorrect archive truncation point calculation for the %r macro
       in recovery_command parameters. This could lead to data loss if a
       warm-standby script relied on %r to decide when to throw away WAL
       segment files.
     - Fix "ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN ... PRIMARY KEY" so that the new column
       is correctly checked to see if it's been initialized to all
     - Fix "REASSIGN OWNED" so that it works on procedural languages too.
     - Fix problems with "SELECT FOR UPDATE/SHARE" occurring as a subquery
       in a query with a non-"SELECT" top-level operation.
     - Fix possible "CREATE TABLE" failure when inheriting the "same"
       constraint from multiple parent relations that inherited that
       constraint from a common ancestor.
     - Fix pg_get_ruledef() to show the alias, if any, attached to the
       target table of an "UPDATE" or "DELETE".
     - Restore the pre-8.3 behavior that an out-of-range block number in a
       TID being used in a TidScan plan results in silently not matching
       any rows. 8.3.0 and 8.3.1 threw an error instead.
     - Fix GIN bug that could result in a too many LWLocks taken failure.
     - Fix broken GiST comparison function for tsquery.
     - Fix tsvector_update_trigger() and ts_stat() to accept domains over
       the types they expect to work with.
     - Fix failure to support enum data types as foreign keys.
     - Avoid possible crash when decompressing corrupted data.
     - Fix race conditions between delayed unlinks and "DROP DATABASE".
       In the worst case this could result in deleting a newly created
       table in a new database that happened to get the same OID as the
       recently-dropped one; but of course that is an extremely
       low-probability scenario.
     - Repair two places where SIGTERM exit of a backend could leave
       corrupted state in shared memory.
     - Fix possible crash due to incorrect plan generated for an x IN
       (SELECT y FROM ...) clause when "x" and "y" have different data
       types; and make sure the behavior is semantically correct when the
       conversion from "y"'s type to "x"'s type is lossy.
     - Fix oversight that prevented the planner from substituting known
       Param values as if they were constants.
     - Fix planner failure when an indexable MIN or MAX aggregate is used
       with DISTINCT or ORDER BY.
     - Fix planner to ensure it never uses a "physical tlist" for a plan
       node that is feeding a Sort node.
     - Avoid unnecessary copying of query strings.
     - Make TransactionIdIsCurrentTransactionId() use binary search
       instead of linear search when checking child-transaction XIDs.
       This fixes some cases in which 8.3.0 was significantly slower than
       earlier releases.
     - Fix conversions between ISO-8859-5 and other encodings to handle
       Cyrillic "Yo" characters (e and E with two dots).
     - Fix several datatype input functions, notably array_in(), 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
     - Fix a corner case in regular-expression substring matching
       (substring(string from pattern)).
       The problem occurs when there is a match to the pattern overall but
       the user has specified a parenthesized subexpression and that
       subexpression hasn't got a match. An example is substring('foo'
       from 'foo(bar)?'). This should return NULL, since (bar) isn't
       matched, but it was mistakenly returning the whole-pattern match
       instead (ie, foo).
     - Prevent cancellation of an auto-vacuum that was launched to prevent
       XID wraparound.
     - Improve "ANALYZE"'s handling of in-doubt tuples (those inserted or
       deleted by a not-yet-committed transaction) so that the counts it
       reports to the stats collector are more likely to be correct.
     - Fix initdb to reject a relative path for its --xlogdir (-X) option.
     - Make psql print tab characters as an appropriate number of spaces,
       rather than \x09 as was done in 8.3.0 and 8.3.1.
     - Add ECPGget_PGconn() function to ecpglib. Dropped
       00upstream-ecpg-get-connection.patch, which backported this fix.
     - Fix incorrect result from ecpg's PGTYPEStimestamp_sub() function.
     - Fix handling of continuation line markers in ecpg.
     - Fix possible crashes in "contrib/cube" functions.
     - Fix core dump in "contrib/xml2"'s xpath_table() function when the
       input query returns a NULL value.
