pkgsrc/databases/postgresql83: Makefile.common distinfo
The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all current
versions of the PostgreSQL database system, including 9.2.1, 9.1.6, 9.0.10,
8.4.14 and 8.3.21. This update fixes critical issues for major versions 9.1 and
9.2, and users running those versions should apply it as soon as possible.
Users of versions 8.3, 8.4 and 9.0 should plan to update at the next scheduled
The update fixes two potential data corruption issues present in the PostgreSQL
9.1 and 9.2 for any server which has crashed, been shutdown with "immediate",
or was failed over to a standby. First, the PostgreSQL development team has
discovered a chance of corruption of BTREE and GIN indexes for databases.
Second, there is a significant chance of corruption of the visibility map. This
update fixes both issues.
We strongly advise users of 9.1 and 9.2 to run VACUUM and/or index rebuilds
after applying the update. Please see the 2012-09-24 Update wiki page for

prevent rescanning of WITH clauses from giving wrong answers
fix PL/Perl crashing issue
reduce bloat for multi-column GiST indexes
time zone data changes for Fiji
