E.23. Release 8.4.8

Release Date: 2011-04-18

This release contains a variety of fixes from 8.4.7. For information about new features in the 8.4 major release, see Section E.31.

E.23.1. Migration to Version 8.4.8

A dump/restore is not required for those running 8.4.X.

However, if your installation was upgraded from a previous major release by running pg_upgrade, you should take action to prevent possible data loss due to a now-fixed bug in pg_upgrade. The recommended solution is to run VACUUM FREEZE on all TOAST tables. More information is available at http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/20110408pg_upgrade_fix.

Also, if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 8.4.2, see the release notes for 8.4.2.

E.23.2. Changes
