Release date: 2011-12-05

This release contains a variety of fixes from 8.2.22. For information about new features in the 8.2 major release, see Section E.202.

E.179.1. Migration to Version 8.2.23

A dump/restore is not required for those running 8.2.X.

However, a longstanding error was discovered in the definition of the information_schema.referential_constraints view. If you rely on correct results from that view, you should replace its definition as explained in the first changelog item below.

Also, if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 8.2.14, see Section E.188.
