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.

05.27.2014 - PHP Next Generation



View PHP related news. When we aren't looking for pictures of kittens on the internet, internals developers are nearly always looking for ways to improve PHP, a few developers have a focus on performance.Over the last year, some research into the possibility of introducing JIT compilation capabilities to PHP has been conducted.During this research, the realization was made that in order to achieve optimal performance from PHP, some internal API's should be changed.This necessitated the birth of the phpng branch, initially authored by Dmitry Stogov, Xinchen Hui, and Nikita Popov. This branch does not include JIT capabilities, but rather seeks to solve those problems that prohibit the current, and any future implementation of a JIT capable executor achieving optimal performance by improving memory usage and cleaning up some core API's.By making these improvements, the phpng branch gives us a considerable performance gain in real world applications, for example a 20% increase in throughput for Wordpress. The door may well now be open for a JIT capable compiler that can perform as we expect, but it's necessary to say that these changes stand strong on their own, without requiring a JIT capable compiler in the future to validate them.The name "Next Generation" was optimistically presumptuous; in reality phpng is an internal project that we are working on, it is not a production ready branch that anyone should deploy, or judge as they would a release of PHP.The work on phpng, the doors it opens, the conversations it has started, the collaboration it is inspiring, are all worth getting excited about. But, we need to stay grounded, honest, and open; and say that there is much work to do in order to make the "Next Generation" a reality, this is only the start.
