Noted by Peter Eisentraut. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=1996b482859c67726e77b80a263d3cce954e022d">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=1996b482859c67726e77b80a263d3cce954e022d</a></li> <li>Add views and functions to monitor hot standby query conflicts. Add the view pg_stat_database_conflicts and a column to pg_stat_database, and the underlying functions to provide the information. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=40d9e94bd7537144d3d379c1fd1264dff5cf4bb2">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=40d9e94bd7537144d3d379c1fd1264dff5cf4bb2</a></li> <li>Bump catversion, forgot in previous commit. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=77745cc7f1617852844dd88ec8ddb48f38e19e9a">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=77745cc7f1617852844dd88ec8ddb48f38e19e9a</a></li> <li>Give superusers REPLIACTION permission by default. This can be overriden by using NOREPLICATION on the CREATE ROLE statement, but by default they will have it, making it backwards compatible and "less surprising" (given that superusers normally override all checks). <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=66a8a0428db046d725b88c8b956384c2a4b4a11c">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=66a8a0428db046d725b88c8b956384c2a4b4a11c</a></li> <li>Add pgreadlink() on Windows to read junction points. Add support for reading back information about the symbolic links we've created with pgsymlink(), which are actually Junction Points. Just as pgsymlink() can only create directory symlinks, pgreadlink() can only read directory symlinks. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=db4d22d0eff091e96d92c82566c9e9d297040b93">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=db4d22d0eff091e96d92c82566c9e9d297040b93</a></li> <li>Properly install gram.h on MSVC builds. This file is now needed by pgAdmin builds, which started failing since it was missing in the installer builds. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=3457514c2d9bac552d4caeb1d3ac5a8d03d3a439">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=3457514c2d9bac552d4caeb1d3ac5a8d03d3a439</a></li> <li>Ensure the directory for gram.h is created on win32. Result of bad testing of my last commit. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=361418be7c23e236d07edf4052de85ab8f32d88d">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=361418be7c23e236d07edf4052de85ab8f32d88d</a></li> <li>Split pg_start_backup() and pg_stop_backup() into two pieces Move the actual functionality into a separate function that's easier to call internally, and change the SQL-callable function to be a wrapper calling this. Also create a pg_abort_backup() function, only callable internally, that does only the most vital parts of pg_stop_backup(), making it safe(r) to call from error handlers. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=4448917d51d6f87655ce357cca009634b0a136e4">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=4448917d51d6f87655ce357cca009634b0a136e4</a></li> </ul> <p>Robert Haas a pouss&eacute;&nbsp;:</p> <ul> <li>Update comments in RecordTransactionCommit() to mention unlogged tables. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=dc8a14311a4825b6bf7b787764b9f0c3f8d8df8e">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=dc8a14311a4825b6bf7b787764b9f0c3f8d8df8e</a></li> <li>Fix crash in ALTER OPERATOR CLASS/FAMILY .. SET SCHEMA. In the previous coding, the parser emitted a List containing a C string, which is no good, because copyObject() can't handle it. Dimitri Fontaine. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=7f60be72b0865dd442c4f6164a997ff528a44d85">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=7f60be72b0865dd442c4f6164a997ff528a44d85</a></li> <li>Improve recovery.conf.sample comments. Jehan-Guillaume de Rorthais, with some additional wordsmithing by me. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=a9f72b408325c4abb41b5ab65f8fb79af4c29495">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=a9f72b408325c4abb41b5ab65f8fb79af4c29495</a></li> <li>Document pg_stat_replication, bump catversion since that was overlooked. Itagaki Takahiro, edited by me. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=9b4271deb97270d336c9d34ac911748faa5a4892">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=9b4271deb97270d336c9d34ac911748faa5a4892</a></li> <li>Remove bogus claims regarding createuser defaults. Josh Kupershmidt. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=af84bee43e356866dc46c95ae5bf77996a8237ff">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=af84bee43e356866dc46c95ae5bf77996a8237ff</a></li> </ul> <p>ITAGAKI Takahiro a pouss&eacute;&nbsp;:</p> <ul> <li>Improve psql tab completion for CREATE/ALTER ROLE [NO]REPLICATION. Missing support for VALID UNTIL in CREATE ROLE is also added. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=14158f25cd164d65cf174dab9e22b3b4a22962a7">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=14158f25cd164d65cf174dab9e22b3b4a22962a7</a></li> <li>New system view pg_stat_replication displays activity of wal sender processes. Itagaki Takahiro and Simon Riggs. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=a755ea33ae3d772977fa083a8614bb9d4cc36e5a">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=a755ea33ae3d772977fa083a8614bb9d4cc36e5a</a></li> </ul> <p>Andrew Dunstan a pouss&eacute;&nbsp;:</p> <ul> <li>Work around header misdefines in modern Windows SDK when _WIN32_WINNT is less than 0x0501. Only required for versions 8.2, 8.3 and 8.4., as we defined _WIN32_WINNT as 0x0501 after that. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=1d1a43422252576e9a7fa07d8dbfea9c724aa75b">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=1d1a43422252576e9a7fa07d8dbfea9c724aa75b</a></li> <li>Allow older branches to be built with Visual Studio 2008.

(metadata user ids still an open issue). <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=a45beaac642147ebf2e561cce62967d244c343c6">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=a45beaac642147ebf2e561cce62967d244c343c6</a></li> <li>Update pg_upgrade C comments. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=e66e43988a334ca58c584a0652d29dff61e698b9">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=e66e43988a334ca58c584a0652d29dff61e698b9</a></li> <li>Rename pg_upgrade variables, for clarity. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=56a9adcb96ead8569582aa1f0f77a8fa9e24c189">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=56a9adcb96ead8569582aa1f0f77a8fa9e24c189</a></li> <li>Update documentation to say that \lo_import sets :LASTOID, not lo_insert. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=1aad44f988dbebbdde986478f25096037c6dd931">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=1aad44f988dbebbdde986478f25096037c6dd931</a></li> <li>Improve C comments about backend variables set by pg_upgrade_support functions. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=46d28820b6d213bf26b24ecd289a1c466ecf1956">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=46d28820b6d213bf26b24ecd289a1c466ecf1956</a></li> <li>Force pg_upgrade's to preserve pg_class.oid, not pg_class.relfilenode. Toast tables have identical pg_class.oid and pg_class.relfilenode, but for clarity it is good to preserve the pg_class.oid.

Per my recent proposal(s). Null key datums can now be returned by extractValue and extractQuery functions, and will be stored in the index. Also, placeholder entries are made for indexable items that are NULL or contain no keys according to extractValue. This means that the index is now always complete, having at least one entry for every indexed heap TID, and so we can get rid of the prohibition on full-index scans. A full-index scan is implemented much the same way as partial-match scans were already: we build a bitmap representing all the TIDs found in the index, and then drive the results off that. Also, introduce a concept of a "search mode" that can be requested by extractQuery when the operator requires matching to empty items (this is just as cheap as matching to a single key) or requires a full index scan (which is not so cheap, but it sure beats failing or giving wrong answers). The behavior remains backward compatible for opclasses that don't return any null keys or request a non-default search mode. Using these features, we can now make the GIN index opclass for anyarray behave in a way that matches the actual anyarray operators for &amp;&amp;, &lt;@, @&gt;, and = ... which it failed to do before in assorted corner cases. This commit fixes the core GIN code and ginarrayprocs.c, updates the documentation, and adds some simple regression test cases for the new behaviors using the array operators. The tsearch and contrib GIN opclass support functions still need to be looked over and probably fixed. Another thing I intend to fix separately is that this is pretty inefficient for cases where more than one scan condition needs a full-index search: we'll run duplicate GinScanEntrys, each one of which builds a large bitmap. There is some existing logic to merge duplicate GinScanEntrys but it needs refactoring to make it work for entries belonging to different scan keys. Note that most of gin.h has been split out into a new file gin_private.h, so that gin.h doesn't export anything that's not supposed to be used by GIN opclasses or the rest of the backend. I did quite a bit of other code beautification work as well, mostly fixing comments and choosing more appropriate names for things. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=73912e7fbd1b52c51d914214abbec1cda64595f2">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=73912e7fbd1b52c51d914214abbec1cda64595f2</a></li> <li>Fix the built-in GIN support procedure declarations in pg_proc.h. Add more "internal" arguments so that these pg_proc entries reflect the current preferred API. This is purely a cosmetic change, since GIN doesn't actually consult the pg_proc entry when calling a support function. Accordingly, no catversion bump. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=a032d50128f30029651806030f71d594ed6b29e1">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=a032d50128f30029651806030f71d594ed6b29e1</a></li> <li>Ooops, forgot to fix contrib/tsearch2's references to GIN support funcs. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=541fc3d4df66a5e51d172a78288069bd92dda0c8">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=541fc3d4df66a5e51d172a78288069bd92dda0c8</a></li> <li>Update GIN support function definitions for contrib/intarray. The underlying C code still needs work, but this at least gets its current regression test passing again. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=69c26c57cfb4194b8cdc69b48b8a71dad1f92bac">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=69c26c57cfb4194b8cdc69b48b8a71dad1f92bac</a></li> <li>Refactor GIN's handling of duplicate search entries. The original coding could combine duplicate entries only when they originated from the same qual condition. In particular it could not combine cases where multiple qual conditions all give rise to full-index scan requests, which is an expensive case well worth optimizing. Refactor so that duplicates are recognized across all the quals. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=56a57473a999b0497e63bde3e303beda5a3c0ff3">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=56a57473a999b0497e63bde3e303beda5a3c0ff3</a></li> <li>Remove pg_am.amindexnulls. The only use we have had for amindexnulls is in determining whether an index is safe to cluster on; but since the addition of the amclusterable flag, that usage is pretty redundant. In passing, clean up assorted sloppiness from the last patch that touched pg_am.h: Natts_pg_am was wrong, and ambuildempty was not documented. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=7e2f906201c8bb95f7fb17e56b8740c38bda5441">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=7e2f906201c8bb95f7fb17e56b8740c38bda5441</a></li> <li>Add array_contains_nulls() function in arrayfuncs.c. This will support fixing contrib/intarray (and probably other places) so that they don't have to fail on arrays that contain a null bitmap but no live null entries. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=adf328c0e1bfde90b944d53f7197fc436bc0c707">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=adf328c0e1bfde90b944d53f7197fc436bc0c707</a></li> <li>Fix up gincostestimate for new extractQuery API. The only reason this wasn't crashing while testing the core anyarray operators was that it was disabled for those cases because of passing the wrong type information to get_opfamily_proc :-(. So fix that too, and make it insist on finding the support proc --- in hindsight, silently doing nothing is not as sane a coping mechanism as all that. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=4d1b76e49eb848b046ddb1beb0f4589816ec8261">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=4d1b76e49eb848b046ddb1beb0f4589816ec8261</a></li> <li>Fix assorted corner-case bugs in contrib/intarray. The array containment operators now behave per mathematical expectation for empty arrays (ie, an empty array is contained in anything). Both these operators and the query_int operators now work as expected in GiST and GIN index searches, rather than having corner cases where the index searches gave different answers. Also, fix unexpected failures where the operators would claim that an array contained nulls, when in fact there was no longer any null present (similar to bug #5784). The restriction to not have nulls is still there, as removing it would take a lot of added code complexity and probably slow things down significantly. Also, remove the arbitrary restriction to 1-D arrays; unlike the other restriction, this was buying us nothing performance-wise. Assorted cosmetic improvements and marginal performance improvements, too. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=fdf2dbda3f49310b20780ad7b290da935cd2335d">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=fdf2dbda3f49310b20780ad7b290da935cd2335d</a></li> <li>Use array_contains_nulls instead of ARR_HASNULL on user-supplied arrays. This applies the fix for bug #5784 to remaining places where we wish to reject nulls in user-supplied arrays. In all these places, there's no reason not to allow a null bitmap to be present, so long as none of the current elements are actually null. I did not change some other places where we are looking at system catalog entries or aggregate transition values, as the presence of a null bitmap in such an array would be suspicious. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=304845075ce0eb9045af50ed32c688a0cb8dd490">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=304845075ce0eb9045af50ed32c688a0cb8dd490</a></li> <li>Fix up core tsquery GIN support for new extractQuery API. No need for the empty-prefix-match kluge to force a full scan anymore. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=52fd2d65a33c9c33b29788e9df89d7716f1ec0bc">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=52fd2d65a33c9c33b29788e9df89d7716f1ec0bc</a></li> <li>Fix crash in the new GiST insertion code, when an update splits the root page. This bug was exercised by contrib/intarray/bench, as noted by Tom Lane. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=ca63029eac379d82f78a985a5d4068b9954deb02">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=ca63029eac379d82f78a985a5d4068b9954deb02</a></li> <li>Improve comment. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=327b25768217f5d4fd82770d0ab449814548f094">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=327b25768217f5d4fd82770d0ab449814548f094</a></li> <li>Update contrib/hstore for new GIN extractQuery API. In particular, make hstore @&gt; '' succeed for all hstores, likewise hstore ?&amp; '{}'.
