08.11.2016 - Postgres-BDR 9.4 1.0 Released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

Oxford, United Kingdom - August 11, 2016

Bi-Directional Replication for PostgreSQL (Postgres-BDR, or BDR) is the first open source multi-master replication system for PostgreSQL to reach full production status, developed by 2ndQuadrant and assisted by a keen user community. BDR is specifically designed for use in geographically distributed clusters, using highly efficient asynchronous logical replication, supporting anything from 2-48 nodes in a distributed database.

WHAT'S NEW?

Significant improvements related to stability and bug fixes have been made in this release. The most important factors of this release are:

  • Smoother handling of schema changes (DDL) statements allowing increased operational stability and reduced maintenance.
  • Various bug fixes for operational issues demonstrating high level of maturity
  • Performance tuning, especially of global sequence handling
  • Removal of the now deprecated UDR
  • Extensive documentation improvements based upon user feedback

For a more comprehensive list of release notes, please click here: http://bdr-project.org/docs/stable/release-1.0.0.html

SUPPORT & RELEASE SCHEDULE

Postgres-BDR 9.4 1.0 will be supported until December 2019, when PostgreSQL 9.4 goes EOL. BDR continues to be developed and BDR9.6 will be released within 6 months. The BDR project has already delivered the majority of its code into PostgreSQL core, though it will likely be about 2-3 more years before this functionality is available in PostgreSQL core.

IS Postgres-BDR RIGHT FOR YOU?

BDR is well suited for databases where:

  • Data is distributed globally
  • Majority of data is written to from only one node at a time (For example, the US node mostly writes changes to US customers, each branch office writes mostly to branch-office-specific data, and so on.)
  • There is a need for SELECTs over complete data set (lookups and consolidation)
  • There are OLTP workloads with many smaller transactions
  • Transactions mostly touching non overlapping sets of data
  • There is partition and latency tolerance

However, this is not a comprehensive list and use cases for BDR can vary based on database type and functionality.

In addition, BDR aids business continuity by providing increased availability during network faults. Applications can be closer to the data and more responsive for users, allowing for a much more satisfying end-user experience.

PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT FOR BDR

BDR is developed and supported by 2ndQuadrant. 2ndQuadrant provides professional support for BDR, as well as consultation and training. With our deep knowledge of distributed databases, we will ensure that you are able to evaluate your use case and applications and determine the most suitable product or solution.

BDR is also available in 2ndQuadrant Cloud, initially on AWS.

For more information, please visit the homepage: https://2ndquadrant.com/en/resources/bdr/.

08.11.2016 - 2016-08-11 Security Update Release



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported versions of our database system, including 9.5.4, 9.4.9, 9.3.14, 9.2.18 and 9.1.23. This release fixes two security issues. It also patches a number of other bugs reported over the last three months. Users who rely on security isolation between database users should update as soon as possible. Other users should plan to update at the next convenient downtime.

Security Issues

Two security holes have been closed by this release:

  • CVE-2016-5423: certain nested CASE expressions can cause the server to crash.
  • CVE-2016-5424: database and role names with embedded special characters can allow code injection during administrative operations like pg_dumpall.

The fix for the second issue also adds an option, -reuse-previous, to psql's \connect command. pg_dumpall will also refuse to handle database and role names containing line breaks after the update. For more information on these issues and how they affect backwards-compatibility, see the Release Notes.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

This update also fixes a number of bugs reported in the last few months. Some of these issues affect only version 9.5, but many affect all supported versions:

  • Fix misbehaviors of IS NULL/IS NOT NULL with composite values
  • Fix three areas where INSERT ... ON CONFLICT failed to work properly with other SQL features.
  • Make INET and CIDR data types properly reject bad IPv6 values
  • Prevent crash in "point ## lseg" operator for NaN input
  • Avoid possible crash in pg_get_expr()
  • Fix several one-byte buffer over-reads in to_number()
  • Don't needlessly plan query if WITH NO DATA is specified
  • Avoid crash-unsafe state in expensive heap_update() paths
  • Fix hint bit update during WAL replay of row locking operations
  • Avoid unnecessary "could not serialize access" with FOR KEY SHARE
  • Avoid crash in postgres -C when the specified variable is a null string
  • Fix two issues with logical decoding and subtransactions
  • Ensure that backends see up-to-date statistics for shared catalogs
  • Prevent possible failure when vacuuming multixact IDs in an upgraded database
  • When a manual ANALYZE specifies columns, don't reset changes_since_analyze
  • Fix ANALYZE's overestimation of n_distinct for columns with nulls
  • Fix bug in b-tree mark/restore processing
  • Fix building of large (bigger than shared_buffers) hash indexes
  • Prevent infinite loop in GiST index build with NaN values
  • Fix possible crash during a nearest-neighbor indexscan
  • Fix "PANIC: failed to add BRIN tuple" error
  • Prevent possible crash during background worker shutdown
  • Many fixes for issues in parallel pg_dump and pg_restore
  • Make pg_basebackup accept -Z 0 as no compression
  • Make regression tests safe for Danish and Welsh locales

The libpq client library has also been updated to support future two-part PostgreSQL version numbers. This update also contains tzdata release 2016f, with updates for Kemerovo, Novosibirsk, Azerbaijan, Belarus, and Morocco.

EOL Warning for Version 9.1

PostgreSQL version 9.1 will be End-of-Life in September 2016. The project expects to only release one more update for that version. We urge users to start planning an upgrade to a later version of PostgreSQL as soon as possible. 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 shut down PostgreSQL and update its binaries. 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.

  • Repair damage done by citext--1.1--1.2.sql
  • Correctly set up aggregate FILTER expression in partial-aggregation plans

This beta also includes many documentation updates and improvements.

Due to changes in system catalogs, a pg_upgrade or pg_dump and restore will be required for users migrating databases from earlier betas.

Beta Schedule

This is the fourth beta release of version 9.6. The PostgreSQL Project will release additional betas as required for testing, followed by one or more release candidates, until the final release in late 2016. For further information please see the Beta Testing page.
