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.

Update PostgreSQL port to latest version.

Two security issues have been fixed in this release which affect users
of specific PostgreSQL features:

CVE-2015-5289: json or jsonb input values constructed from arbitrary
user input can crash the PostgreSQL server and cause a denial of

CVE-2015-5288: The crypt( function included with the optional pgCrypto
extension could be exploited to read a few additional bytes of memory.
No working exploit for this issue has been developed.

This update will also disable SSL renegotiation by default;
previously, it was enabled by default.   SSL renegotiation will be
removed entirely in PostgreSQL versions 9.5 and later.

Update PostgreSQL ports to latest version.

Data Corruption Fix

For users of PostgreSQL versions 9.3 or 9.4, this release fixes a problem where
the database will fail to protect against "multixact wraparound", resulting in
data corruption or loss. Users with a high transaction rate (1 million or more
per hour) in a database with many foreign keys are especially vulnerable. We
strongly urge all users of 9.4 and 9.3 to update their installations in the
next few days.

Users of versions 9.2 and earlier are not affected by this issue.

Update PostgreSQL-9.x to latests versions.

This update fixes multiple security issues reported in PostgreSQL over the past
few months. All of these issues require prior authentication, and some require
additional conditions, and as such are not considered generally urgent.
However, users should examine the list of security holes patched below in case
they are particularly vulnerable.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group announced that the first beta
release of PostgreSQL 9.4, the latest version of the world's leading
open source database, is available today.  This beta contains previews
of all of the features which will be available in version 9.4, and is
ready for testing by the worldwide PostgreSQL community.  Please
download, test, and report what you find.

Major Features

The new major features available for testing in this beta include:

* JSONB: 9.4 includes the new JSONB "binary JSON" type. This new
  storage format for document data is higher-performance, and comes with
  indexing, functions and operators for manipulating JSON data.
* Replication: The new Data Change Streaming API allows decoding and
  transformation of the replication stream.  This lays the foundation
  for new replication tools that support high-speed and more flexible
  replication and scale-out solutions.
* Materialized Views with "Refresh Concurrently", which permit
  fast-response background summary reports for complex data.
* ALTER SYSTEM SET, which enables modifications to postgresql.conf
  from the SQL command line and from remote clients, easing
  administration tasks.
