PostgreSQL 11.1, 10.6, 9.6.11, 9.5.15, 9.4.20, and 9.3.25 Released!

2018, november 8 - 01:00

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported versions of our database system, including 11.1, 10.6, 9.6.11, 9.5.15, 9.4.20, and 9.3.25. This release fixes one security issue as well as bugs reported over the last three months.

All users using the affected versions of PostgreSQL should update as soon as possible. Please see the notes on "Updating" below for any post-update steps that may be required if you are using pg_stat_statements in your installation.

This update is also the final release for PostgreSQL 9.3, which is now end-of-life and will no longer receive any bug or security fixes. If your environment still uses PostgreSQL 9.3, please make plans to update to a community supported version as soon as possible. Please see our versioning policy for more information.

Security Issues

One security vulnerability has been closed by this release:

  • CVE-2018-16850: SQL injection in pg_upgrade and pg_dump, via CREATE TRIGGER ... REFERENCING.

Versions Affected: 10, 11

Using a purpose-crafted trigger definition, an attacker can run arbitrary SQL statements with superuser privileges when a superuser runs pg_upgrade on the database or during a pg_dump dump/restore cycle. This attack requires a CREATE privilege on some non-temporary schema or a TRIGGER privilege on a table. This is exploitable in the default PostgreSQL configuration, where all users have CREATE privilege on public schema.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

This update also fixes numerous bugs that were reported in the last several months. Some of these issues affect only version 11, but many affect all supported versions.

These releases include fixes that:

  • Ensure that automatically created child indexes are created in the same tablespace as the parent partitioned index
  • Fix several crashes with triggers
  • Fix problems with applying ON COMMIT DELETE ROWS to a partitioned temporary table
  • Fix how NULL values are handled when using LEFT JOIN with a parallelized hash join
  • Several fixes around using named or defaulted arguments in CALL statements
  • Fix for strict aggregate functions (i.e. aggregates that cannot accept NULL inputs) with ORDER BY columns that enforces the strictness check
  • Fix with CASE statements where an expression was cast to an array type
  • Disable an optimization for updating expression indexes in order to prevent a crash
  • Fix a memory leak that occurred on a specific case of using a SP-GiST index
  • Fix for pg_verify_checksums incorrectly reporting on files that are not expected to have checksums
  • Prevent the PostgreSQL server from starting when wal_level is set to a value that cannot support an existing replication slot
  • Ensure that the server will process already-received NOTIFY and SIGTERM interrupts before waiting for client input
  • Allow PL/Ruby to work with newer versions of PostgreSQL
  • Fix for character-class checks on Windows for Unicode characters above U+FFFF, which affected full-text search as well as contrib/ltree and contrib/pg_trgm
  • Fix a case where psql would not report the receipt of a message from a NOTIFY call until after the next command
  • Fix build problems on macOS 10.14 (Mojave)
  • Several build fixes for the Windows platform

This updates also contains tzdata release 2018g for DST law changes in Chile, Fiji, Morocco, and Russia (Volgograd), plus historical corrections for China, Hawaii, Japan, Macau, and North Korea.

PostgreSQL 9.3 is End-of-Life (EOL)

PostgreSQL 9.3 is now end-of-life and will no longer receive any bug or security fixes. We urge users to start planning an upgrade to a later version of PostgreSQL as soon as possible. Please see our versioning policy for more information.

Updating

All PostgreSQL update releases are cumulative. As with other minor releases, users are not required to dump and reload their database or use pg_upgrade in order to apply this update release; you may simply shutdown PostgreSQL and update its binaries.

If your system is using pg_stat_statements and you are running a version of PostgreSQL 10 or PostgreSQL 11, we advise that you execute the following command after upgrading:

ALTER EXTENSION pg_stat_statements UPDATE;

Users who have skipped one or more update releases may need to run additional, post-update steps; please see the release notes for earlier versions for details.

Announcing the release of Postgres-XL 10R1

2018, október 25 - 02:00

Oxford, United Kingdom - October 25, 2018

2ndQuadrant today announced the release of Postgres-XL 10R1, now available for download here.

Postgres-XL is a massively parallel database built on top of - and very closely compatible with - community PostgreSQL. It supports both Business Intelligence workloads and high-volume transactional read/write workloads, all on the same platform.

Postgres-XL is fully open source. As we begin to move towards a fully parallel, sharded version of core PostgreSQL, many parts of Postgres-XL will be fed into later releases of PostgreSQL.

This major release includes most of the new features added in the latest major PostgreSQL releases such as query parallelism (PostgreSQL 9.6) and declarative partitioning (PostgreSQL 10), now both available in Postgres-XL 10R1. Additionally, Postgres-XL 10R1 includes several significant performance enhancements that have been made to PostgreSQL in the last few years.

This release introduces the following enhancements from major PostgreSQL releases:

PostgreSQL 10

  • Declarative table partitioning.
  • Improved query parallelism.
  • Significant general performance improvements.
  • Improved monitoring and control.

PostgreSQL 9.6

  • Parallel execution of sequential scans, joins, and aggregates.
  • Avoid scanning pages unnecessarily during vacuum freeze operations.
  • Substantial performance improvements, especially in the area of scalability on multi-CPU-socket servers.
  • Full-text search can now search for phrases (multiple adjacent words).

This new release also includes several bug fixes and enhancements that are Postgres-XL specific. The distributed planner code has been rewritten to utilize advances in the PostgreSQL code.

repmgr 4.2 - Now with support for PostgreSQL 11

2018, október 24 - 02:00

Oxford, United Kingdom - October 24, 2018

2ndQuadrant today announced the release of repmgr 4.2 This release includes support for PostgreSQL 11, the newest major release announced by the community last week.

repmgr is the most popular tool for PostgreSQL replication and failover management. It enhances and complements the built-in replication capabilities in PostgreSQL; making it easy to set up and manage standby servers, check replication status, and perform administrative tasks such as switchover operations. The repmgrd daemon provides automatic failover capability to maximize database uptime, and can easily be integrated with other tools such as PgBouncer for high application availability.

The principal new feature of repmgr 4.2 is the ability to "pause" the repmgr daemon (repmgrd) via the repmgr daemon pause and the corresponding repmgr daemon unpause commands. These will temporarily prevent it from taking failover action. This is useful for activities like planned maintenance (e.g. database upgrades or switchovers) which previously required repmgrd to be shut down on all nodes. repmgr standby switchover will automatically pause/unpause repmgrd, simplifying switchover operations.

Additionally, the new repmgr daemon status command is available to provide an overview of repmgrd status on all nodes.

For more details on this functionality, see the detailed documentation.

repmgr 4.2 also provides several usability enhancements:

  • Add new parameter shutdown_check_timeout (default: 60 seconds). This provides an explicit timeout for repmgr standby switchover to check that the demotion candidate (current primary) has shut down.

  • Add new parameter repmgr_ bindir. This facilitates remote invocation of repmgr when the repmgr binary is located somewhere other than the PostgreSQL binary directory, as it cannot be assumed all package maintainers will install repmgr there. This parameter is optional; if not set (default), repmgr will fall back to pg_ bindir (if set).

  • repmgr cluster cleanup now accepts the --node-id option to delete records for only one node.

  • When running repmgr cluster matrix and repmgr cluster crosscheck, repmgr will report nodes unreachable via SSH, and emit return code ERR_BAD_SSH.

For a detailed list of all changes, please read the complete release notes here.

Upgrade instructions are available here.

Packages and installation documentation are available via 2ndQuadrant’s public RPM and APT repositories from 2ndQuadrant here.

Source files can be downloaded here and installation instructions are available here.

repmgr is distributed under GPL v3.

Barman v2.5 - Now with Support for PostgreSQL 11

2018, október 23 - 02:00

Oxford, United Kingdom - October 23, 2018

2ndQuadrant today announced the release of Barman version 2.5. This release includes support for PostgreSQL 11, the newest major release announced last week by the community.

Barman (Backup and Recovery Manager) is an open source administration tool for managing backup and disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers. It allows you to perform remote backups of multiple servers in business critical environments and helps DBAs during the recovery phase.

Barman v2.5 presents the following new features:

  • Add support for PostgreSQL 11
  • Add check-backup command. This verifies all WAL files required for consistency of a base backup are present in the archive. A new state is added (WAITING_FOR_WALS) after completing a base backup, and it is set to DONE only after all WALL files have been verified.

This release also fixes decoding errors reading external commands output. A complete list of changes and bug fixes is available here.

Download and installation instructions are available here.

Barman is developed and maintained by 2ndQuadrant and distributed under GPL v3.

PostgreSQL 11 Released!

2018, október 18 - 02:00

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group today announced the release of PostgreSQL 11, the latest version of the world’s most advanced open source database.

PostgreSQL 11 provides users with improvements to overall performance of the database system, with specific enhancements associated with very large databases and high computational workloads. Further, PostgreSQL 11 makes significant improvements to the table partitioning system, adds support for stored procedures capable of transaction management, improves query parallelism and adds parallelized data definition capabilities, and introduces just-in-time (JIT) compilation for accelerating the execution of expressions in queries.

"For PostgreSQL 11, our development community focused on adding features that improve PostgreSQL's ability to manage very large databases," said Bruce Momjian, a core team member of the PostgreSQL Global Development Group. "On top of PostgreSQL's proven performance for transactional workloads, PostgreSQL 11 makes it even easier for developers to run big data applications at scale."

PostgreSQL benefits from over 20 years of open source development and has become the preferred open source relational database for developers. The project continues to receive recognition across the industry, and has been featured as the "DBMS of the Year 2017" by DB-Engines and in the SD Times 2018 100.

PostgreSQL 11 is the first major release since PostgreSQL 10 was released on October 5, 2017. The next update release for PostgreSQL 11 containing bug fixes will be PostgreSQL 11.1, and the next major release with new features will be PostgreSQL 12.

Increased Robustness and Performance for Partitioning

PostgreSQL 11 adds the ability to partition data by a hash key, also known as hash partitioning, adding to the current ability to partition data in PostgreSQL by a list of values or by a range. PostgreSQL 11 further improves its data federation abilities with functionality improvements for partitions that use the PostgreSQL foreign data wrapper, postgres_fdw.

To help with managing partitions, PostgreSQL 11 introduces a catch-all default partition for data that does not match a partition key, and the ability to create primary keys, foreign keys, indexes, and triggers on partitioned tables that are passed down to all partitions. PostgreSQL 11 also supports automatically moving rows to the correct partition if the partition key for that row is updated.

PostgreSQL 11 improves upon query performance when reading from partitions by using a new partition elimination strategy. Additionally, PostgreSQL 11 now supports the popular "upsert" feature on partitioned tables, which helps users to simplify application code and reduce network overhead when interacting with their data.

Transactions Supported in Stored Procedures

Developers have been able to create user-defined functions in PostgreSQL for over 20 years, but prior to PostgreSQL 11, these functions were unable to manage their own transactions. PostgreSQL 11 adds SQL procedures that can perform full transaction management within the body of a function, enabling developers to create more advanced server-side applications, such as ones involving incremental bulk data loading.

SQL procedures can be created using the CREATE PROCEDURE command, executed using the CALL command, and are supported by the server-side procedural languages PL/pgSQL, PL/Perl, PL/Python, and PL/Tcl.

Enhanced Capabilities for Query Parallelism

PostgreSQL 11 improves parallel query performance, with performance gains in parallel sequential scans and hash joins along with more efficient scans of partitioned data. PostgreSQL can now execute SELECT queries that use UNION in parallel if the underlying queries are unable to be parallelized.

PostgreSQL 11 adds parallelism to several data definition commands, notably for the creation of B-tree indexes that are generated by executing the standard CREATE INDEX command. Several data definition commands that either create tables or materialized views from queries are also parallel capable now, including the CREATE TABLE .. AS, SELECT INTO, and CREATE MATERIALIZED VIEW.

Just-in-Time (JIT) Compilation for Expressions

PostgreSQL 11 introduces support for Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation to accelerate the execution of certain expressions during query execution. JIT expression compilation for PostgreSQL uses the LLVM project to speed up the execution of expressions in WHERE clauses, target lists, aggregates, projections, and some internal operations.

To take advantage of JIT compilation, you will need to install the LLVM dependencies and enable JIT compilation in either your PostgreSQL settings file by setting jit = on or from your PostgreSQL session by executing SET jit = on.

General User Experience Improvements

The enhancements to the PostgreSQL relational database are not possible without the feedback from an active user community and the hard work by the people who work on PostgreSQL. Below highlights a few of the many features included in PostgreSQL 11 designed to improve the overall user experience:

  • Removing the need for ALTER TABLE .. ADD COLUMN .. DEFAULT .. with a not NULL default to rewrite the whole table on execution, which provides a significant performance boost when running this command.
  • "Covering indexes," which allows a user to add additional columns to an index using the INCLUDE clause and are helpful for performing index-only scans, especially on data types that are not indexable by B-tree indexes.
  • Additional functionality for working with window functions, including allowing RANGE to use PRECEDING/FOLLOWING, GROUPS, and frame exclusion
  • The inclusion of the keywords "quit" and "exit" in the PostgreSQL command-line interface to help make it easier to leave the command-line tool

For a full list of features included in this release, please read the release notes, which can be found at:

https://www.postgresql.org/docs/11/static/release-11.html

Changes Since 11 Beta 3

There have been many bug fixes for PostgreSQL 11 reported during the Beta 3 period and applied to the Beta 4 release. This release also includes other bug fixes that were reported for supported versions of PostgreSQL that also affected PostgreSQL 11. These fixes include:

  • JIT compilation is disabled by default. To enable JIT compilation, you must set jit = on in your configuration file or in a session
  • Enforce that names for constraints are unique
  • Several fixes for stored procedures, including improved hints and documentation around usage
  • Several fixes for partitioning, including fixes for runtime partition pruning
  • Fix for parallelized CREATE INDEX by disallowing builds on mapped catalog relations
  • Fix for REINDEX to prevent unprivileged users from reindexing shared catalogs in certain cases
  • Memory-leak fix when multiple calls are made to XMLTABLE in a single query
  • Several fixes for pg_verify_checksums
  • Several fixes for libpq, including a fix to only look up a hostname when explicitly requested to do so
  • Several pg_upgrade fixes, including handling event triggers in extensions correctly
  • Several fixes for pg_dump and pg_restore

For a detailed list of fixes, please visit the open items page.

Testing for Bugs & Compatibility

The stability of each PostgreSQL release greatly depends on you, the community, to test the upcoming version with your workloads and testing tools in order to find bugs and regressions before the release of PostgreSQL 11. As this is a Beta, minor changes to database behaviors, feature details, and APIs are still possible. Your feedback and testing will help determine the final tweaks on the new features, so please test in the near future. The quality of user testing helps determine when we can make a final release.

A list of open issues is publicly available in the PostgreSQL wiki. You can report bugs using this form on the PostgreSQL website:

Beta Schedule

This is the fourth beta release of PostgreSQL 11. In all likelihood, this is the final beta release of PostgreSQL 11 before one or more release candidates are made available. For further information please see the Beta Testing page.

Announcing the release of Postgres-XL 10R1Beta1

2018, szeptember 17 - 02:00

2ndQuadrant announced today the release of Postgres-XL 10r1beta1, now available for download here.

Postgres-XL is a massively parallel database built on top of - and very closely compatible with - community PostgreSQL and its set of advanced features. It supports both Business Intelligence workloads and high-volume transactional write and read workloads, all on the same platform.

Postgres-XL is fully open source; as we begin to move towards a fully parallel, sharded version of core PostgreSQL, many parts of Postgres-XL will feed directly or indirectly into later releases of PostgreSQL.

Postgres-XL 10R1Beta1 introduces the following enhancements from major PostgreSQL latest releases:

PostgreSQL 10

  • Declarative table partitioning
  • Improved query parallelism
  • Significant general performance improvements
  • Improved monitoring and control

PostgreSQL 9.6

  • Parallel execution of sequential scans, joins and aggregates
  • Avoid scanning pages unnecessarily during vacuum freeze operations
  • Substantial performance improvements, especially in the area of scalability on multi-CPU-socket servers
  • Full-text search can now search for phrases (multiple adjacent words)

This new release also includes several bug fixes and Postgres-XL specific enhancements. The distributed planner code has been rewritten to utilise advances in the PostgreSQL code.

For a complete list of updates and bug fixes, read full release notes here.
