E.94. Release 7.4.21

[Nota]

Release date

2008-06-12

This release contains one serious bug fix over 7.4.20. For information about new features in the 7.4 major release, see Sezione E.115, «Release 7.4».

E.94.1. Migration to Version 7.4.21

A dump/restore is not required for those running 7.4.X. However, if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 7.4.11, see the release notes for 7.4.11.

E.94.2. Changes

  • Make pg_get_ruledef() parenthesize negative constants (Tom)

    Before this fix, a negative constant in a view or rule might be dumped as, say, -42::integer, which is subtly incorrect: it should be (-42)::integer due to operator precedence rules. Usually this would make little difference, but it could interact with another recent patch to cause PostgreSQL™ to reject what had been a valid SELECT DISTINCT view query. Since this could result in pg_dump output failing to reload, it is being treated as a high-priority fix. The only released versions in which dump output is actually incorrect are 8.3.1 and 8.2.7.
