PostgreSQL 9.0.2, 8.4.6, 8.3.13, 8.2.19, 8.1.23 Update Release
The PostgreSQL Global Development Group today released updates for all active branches of the PostgreSQL object-relational database system, including versions 9.0.2, 8.4.6, 8.3.13, 8.2.19, 8.1.23. Database administrators are strongly encouraged to update at the next available downtime, particularly if using version 9.0, Point-In-Time Recovery or Warm Standby.
This release is the last update to PostgreSQL 8.1. Version 8.1 is now end-of-life, and users are encouraged to upgrade to a newer version as soon as possible. See our release support policy: http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/PostgreSQL_Release_Support_Policy
This release includes numerous documentation updates and 174 bugfixes, including:
* Avoid failure when trying to report an impending transaction wraparound condition from outside a transaction. This oversight prevented recovery after transaction wraparound got too close, because database startup processing would fail, backpatched to all versions.
The 9.0.2 update also contains several fixes for issues with features introduced or changed in version 9.0:
* Fix low-risk potential denial of service against RADIUS login.
Overall, these releases include 79 patches to 9.0, 38 patches to 8.4, 31 patches to 8.3, 25 patches to 8.2 and 21 patches to 8.1.
See the release notes for each version for a full list of changes with details: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.0/static/release.html
As with other minor releases, users are not required to dump and reload their database in order to apply this update release; you may simply shut down PostgreSQL and update its binaries. Users skipping more than one update may need to check the release notes for extra, post-update steps.
