PostgreSQL is a sophisticated Object-Relational DBMS, supporting
almost all SQL constructs, including subselects, transactions, and
user-defined types and functions. It is the most advanced open-source
database available anywhere. Commercial Support is also available.
The original Postgres code was the effort of many graduate students,
undergraduate students, and staff programmers working under the direction of
Professor Michael Stonebraker at the University of California, Berkeley. In
1995, Andrew Yu and Jolly Chen took on the task of converting the DBMS query
language to SQL and created a new database system which came to known as
Postgres95. Many others contributed to the porting, testing, debugging and
enhancement of the Postgres95 code. As the code improved, and 1995 faded into
memory, PostgreSQL was born.
PostgreSQL development is presently being performed by a team of Internet
developers who are now responsible for all current and future development. The
development team coordinator is Marc G. Fournier (scrappy@PostgreSQL.ORG).
Support is available from the PostgreSQL developer/user community through the
support mailing list (questions@PostgreSQL.ORG).
PostgreSQL is free and the complete source is available.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released a security
update to all current versions of the PostgreSQL database system,
including versions 9.2.4, 9.1.9, 9.0.13, and 8.4.17. This update
fixes a high-exposure security vulnerability in versions 9.0 and
later. All users of the affected versions are strongly urged to apply
the update *immediately*.
A major security issue (for versions 9.x only) fixed in this release,
makes it possible for a connection request containing a database name
that begins with "-" to be crafted that can damage or destroy files
within a server's data directory. Anyone with access to the port the
PostgreSQL server listens on can initiate this request. This issue was
discovered by Mitsumasa Kondo and Kyotaro Horiguchi of NTT Open Source
Software Center.(Only the first 15 lines of the commit message are shown above )

Update all PostgreSQL ports to latest version.
Remove postgresql-contrib in favour for postgresqlNN-contrib.
This way we will get packages built, which is nice.
The PostgreSQL Project today released minor versions updating all active
branches of the PostgreSQL object-relational database system, including
versions 8.4.4, 8.3.11, 8.2.17, 8.1.21, 8.0.25, and 7.4.29. This release
fixes moderate-risk security issues with PL/perl and PL/tcl, as well as
a data corruption issue with standby databases. Users of any of these
three features should update their PostgreSQL installations immediately.
