postgresql-9.3 (9.3.8-0ubuntu0.4.04) trusty-proposed; urgency=medium

  * New upstream bug fix release (LP: #1461425)
    - Avoid failures while fsync'ing data directory during crash restart.

      In the previous minor releases we added a patch to fsync everything in
      the data directory after a crash.  Unfortunately its response to any
      error condition was to fail, thereby preventing the server from starting
      up, even when the problem was quite harmless.  An example is that an
      unwritable file in the data directory would prevent restart on some
      platforms; but it is common to make SSL certificate files unwritable by
      the server.  Revise this behavior so that permissions failures are
      ignored altogether, and other types of failures are logged but do not
      prevent continuing.

   - See release notes for details about other fixes.
