Release Notes
+ Release 7.2.6
+
+ Release date: 2004-10-22
+
+ This release contains a variety of fixes from 7.2.5.
+ _________________________________________________________________
+
+ Migration to version 7.2.6
+
+ A dump/restore is not required for those running 7.2.X.
+ _________________________________________________________________
+
+ Changes
+
+ * Repair possible failure to update hint bits on disk
+ Under rare circumstances this oversight could lead to "could not
+ access transaction status" failures, which qualifies it as a
+ potential-data-loss bug.
+ * Ensure that hashed outer join does not miss tuples
+ Very large left joins using a hash join plan could fail to output
+ unmatched left-side rows given just the right data distribution.
+ * Disallow running pg_ctl as root
+ This is to guard against any possible security issues.
+ * Avoid using temp files in /tmp in make_oidjoins_check
+ This has been reported as a security issue, though it's hardly
+ worthy of concern since there is no reason for non-developers to
+ use this script anyway.
+ * Update to newer versions of Bison
