Release Notes
+ Release 7.3.8
+
+ Release date: 2004-10-22
+
+ This release contains a variety of fixes from 7.3.7.
+ _________________________________________________________________
+
+ Migration to version 7.3.8
+
+ A dump/restore is not required for those running 7.3.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.

+
+ Changes
+
+ * Prevent possible loss of committed transactions during crash
+ Due to insufficient interlocking between transaction commit and
+ checkpointing, it was possible for transactions committed just
+ before the most recent checkpoint to be lost, in whole or in part,
+ following a database crash and restart. This is a serious bug that
+ has existed since PostgreSQL 7.1.
+ * Fix corner case for btree search in parallel with first root page
+ split
+ * Fix buffer overrun in to_ascii (Guido Notari)
+ * Fix core dump in deadlock detection on machines where char is
+ unsigned
+ * Fix failure to respond to "pg_ctl stop -m fast" after
+ Async_NotifyHandler runs
+ * Repair memory leaks in pg_dump
+ * Avoid conflict with system definition of isblank() function or
+ macro
