07.28.2014 - Microsoft expands program to offer transitioning service members training for tech jobs



View Microsoft-Press related news.

REDMOND, Wash. — July 28, 2014 — Microsoft Corp. on Monday announced that its Microsoft Software & Systems Academy (MSSA), a 16-week program that provides IT training to eligible U.S. active-duty transitioning service members, is now operating at Camp Pendleton in California and Fort Hood in Texas. The program was first launched in 2013 at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington, where a third class is now benefiting from the program.

With the addition of Camp Pendleton and Fort Hood, the MSSA is now assisting transitioning service members at two of the five largest military installations in the country, as well as the major Marine Corps base on the West Coast. With the expansion, nearly 90 service members are benefiting from or have already completed the MSSA.

On the heels of Monday’s announcement, a ceremony will occur at Fort Hood where 10 service members who just completed the first MSSA class at the base will be recognized for their achievement. Officials from Fort Hood, Microsoft and Launch Consulting, a veteran-owned, veteran-operated technology consulting firm administering the program, will be on hand to congratulate them.

“These military bases are home to some of the most talented, dedicated professionals our country has to offer,” said Microsoft Vice President of Military Affairs Chris Cortez. “We’ve expanded our program because we want more transitioning service members to have the opportunity to pursue rewarding careers at Microsoft and other technology companies.”

In the 16-week course, participants are taught by professors from Saint Martin’s University in Washington and Central Texas College, using a customized Microsoft IT Academy curriculum. Microsoft employees volunteer as mentors by connecting to the class through Lync and Skype. Through interactive lessons and mock interviews, participants receive training to help prepare them for the final step: the opportunity to interview at Microsoft.

Microsoft is focused on providing service members with opportunities for training and employment as they seek new careers. It operates a careers website, We Still Serve, with tips and resources for job seekers, a list of Microsoft job opportunities, and connections with Microsoft employees who are veterans. Microsoft also participates in the 100,000 Jobs Mission, the Student Veterans of America Success Corps and Hire America’s Heroes.

“Training programs like the Microsoft Software & Systems Academy offer excellent opportunities for our transitioning service members,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Douglas R. Gault, U.S. Garrison Fort Hood. “The beauty of programs like this is they develop the necessary skills that complement the talents of our service members while they are still in the Army — skills that translate into real job opportunities before they transition into civilian life. I would encourage any company that is looking for tough, hard-working, dedicated employees who demonstrate leadership to consider hiring our transitioning soldiers.”

“I applaud the leadership at bases in three states, including Texas, for supporting a program that prepares transitioning members of the Armed Forces to begin rewarding careers in the technology sector,” said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. “In the Senate, we share the desire to help these bright men and women translate their skills, aptitude and military experience into high-tech careers in the private sector.”

The MSSA is part of Microsoft YouthSpark, the company’s global initiative to help young people gain the critical technology skills required for today’s jobs. Microsoft’s establishment of the MSSA was made possible by the 2011 VOW to Hire Heroes Act. The bill allows service members to begin the employment process before their separation from the military to facilitate a seamless transition to other jobs.

“We supported the Vow to Hire Heroes Act because so many of America’s heroes are transitioning from the military due to the drawdown from our engagements in Afghanistan and Iraq,” said Congressman John Carter, R-Texas. “Many service members already have what major technology employers need — leadership experience and an aptitude for complex problem-solving — and simply need to sharpen their technical skills. We hope to see more technology companies support a model like MSSA to help transitioning service members apply their many skills to the private sector.”

For eligibility requirements, service members should contact the education centers at participating bases or visit WeStillServe.com/MSSA for general guidelines.

07.24.2014 - PostgreSQL 9.4 Beta 2 Released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has made available the second beta release of PostgreSQL 9.4. This beta contains previews of all of the features which will be available in version 9.4, plus corrections for many of the issues discovered by users who tested 9.4 Beta 1. Please download, test, and report what you find.

Among the changes made since 9.4 Beta 1 are:

  • Fix handling of two-phase commit and prepared statements for logical decoding
  • Multiple fixes for bugs in pg_recvlogical
  • Change slot handling logic for replication slots
  • Add support for BSD and e2fsprogs UUID libraries.
  • Multiple jsonb bug fixes
  • Remove use_json_as_text options from json functions
  • Make json_build_* functions STABLE instead of IMMUTABLE
  • Prevent ALTER SYSTEM from changing the data directory
  • Prevent autovacuum-related crash
  • Many documentation improvements and changes

Beta 2 includes changes to pg_control and to the system catalogs. As such, users who have been testing Beta 1 will need to upgrade in order to test Beta 2. We suggest using pg_upgrade for this upgrade in order to test that as well.

For a full listing of the features in version 9.4 Beta, please see the release notes. Additional descriptions and notes on the new features are available on the 9.4 Features Wiki Page.

We depend on our community to help test the next version in order to guarantee that it is high-performance and bug-free. Please download PostgreSQL 9.4 Beta 2 and try it with your workloads and applications as soon as you can, and give feedback to the PostgreSQL developers. Features and APIs in Beta 2 will not change substantially before final release, so it is now safe to start building applications against the new features. More information on how to test and report issues

Get the PostgreSQL 9.4 Beta 2, including binaries and installers for Windows, Linux and Mac from our download page.

Full documentation of the new version is available online, and also installs with PostgreSQL.

07.24.2014 - PostgreSQL updates 9.3.5, 9.2.9, 9.1.14, 9.0.18, and 8.4.22 released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported version of the database system, including versions 9.3.5, 9.2.9, 9.1.14, 9.0.18, and 8.4.22. This minor release fixes a number of issues discovered and reported by users over the last four months, including some data corruption issues, and is the last update of version 8.4. Users of version 9.3 will want to update at the earliest opportunity; users of version 8.4 will want to schedule an upgrade to a supported PostgreSQL version.

Among the notable issues fixed in this release are:

PostgreSQL 9.3 and pg_upgrade: Users who upgraded to version 9.3 using pg_upgrade may have an issue with transaction information which causes VACUUM to eventually fail. These users should run the script provided in the release notes to determine if their installation is affected, and then take the remedy steps outlined there.

PostgreSQL 9.3 crash recovery: Three issues which could compromise data integrity during crash recovery on master or standby servers in PostgreSQL 9.3 have been fixed.

GIN and GiST indexes: Three issues with GIN and GiST indexes, used for PostGIS and full text indexing, can cause corruption or incorrect query responses. Any indexes on bit or bit varying columns should be rebuilt following the instructions in the release notes.

Security during make check: The insecure socket permissions during "make check", reported in a previous security announcement, have now been fixed.

With this release, version 8.4 is now End-of-Life (EOL), per our Versioning Policy. This means that no additional updates will be released for version 8.4, and users should plan to upgrade to a later version very soon.

In addition the above, this update release includes the following fixes which affect multiple PostgreSQL versions:

  • Fix race condition with concurrent tuple updating
  • Prevent "could not find pathkey item to sort" planner error
  • Properly optimize subqueries with set-returning functions
  • Repair planner regression in optimizing AND/OR NULL
  • Fix planner handling of VARIADIC functions
  • Make json_populate_recordset handle nested JSON properly
  • Prevent corruption of TOAST values when creating complex types
  • Prevent "record type has not been registered" query error
  • Fix a possible crash condition with functions and rewinding cursors
  • Patch three memory leaks
  • Fix row checks for rows deleted by subtransactions
  • Change how pg_stat_activity displays sessions during PREPARE TRANSACTION
  • Prevent multixact ID corruption during VACUUM FULL
  • Fix indentation when displaying complex view definitions
  • Fix client hostname lookup in pg_hba.conf
  • Fix libpython linking on OSX
  • Avoid buffer bloat in libpq
  • Fix an issue with dumping materialized views
  • Fix pg_upgrade's handling of multixact IDs
  • Make sure that pgcrypto clears sensitive information from memory
  • Time zone updates for Crimea, Egypt, and Morocco

Four Windows-specific fixes are included in this release:

  • Prevent tablespace creation recovery errors
  • Fix detection of socket failures
  • Allow users to change parameters after startup
  • Properly quote executable names so they don't fail

A few of the issues above require post-update steps to be carried out by affected users. Please see the release notes for details.

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 multiple update releases may need to perform additional post-update steps; see the Release Notes for details.
