This Month's Activity
- WHATSNEW: Add link to known issues
Samba - Karolin Seeger
- Add optimizer and executor support for parallel index scans
PostgreSQL - Robert Haas: In combination with 569174f1be92be93f5366212cc46960d28a5c5cd, which taught the btree AM how to perform parallel index scans, this allows parallel index scan plans on btree indexes.
- libpq: Make target_session_attrs=read-write consume empty result
PostgreSQL - Robert Haas: Otherwise, the leftover empty result can cause problems in some situations.
- Add CREATE COLLATION IF NOT EXISTS clause
PostgreSQL - Peter Eisentraut: The core of the functionality was already implemented when pg_import_system_collations was added.
- btree: Support parallel index scans
PostgreSQL - Robert Haas: This isn't exposed to the optimizer or the executor yet; we'll add support for those things in a separate patch.
- spicevmc: Add some statistics
SPICE - Frediano Ziglio
- Remove contrib/tsearch2.
PostgreSQL - Robert Haas: This module was intended to ease migrations of applications that used the pre-8.3 version of text search to the in-core version introduced in that release.
- s3/util: mvxattr, a tool to rename extended attributes
Samba - Ralph Boehme: Usage: mvxattr -s STRING -d STRING PATH [PATH ...]-s, --from=STRING xattr source name-d, --to=STRING xattr destination name-l, --follow-symlinks follow symlinks, the default is to ignore them-p, --print print files where the xattr got renamed-v, --verbose print files as they are checked-f, --force force overwriting of destination xattr
- Add CREATE SEQUENCE AS clause
PostgreSQL - Peter Eisentraut: This stores a data type, required to be an integer type, with the sequence.
- Update ddl.sgml for declarative partitioning syntax
PostgreSQL - Simon Riggs: Add a section titled "Partitioned Tables" to describe what are partitioned tables, partition, their similarities with inheritance.
