PostgreSQL minor versions pre-release announcement

April 3rd, 2013

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group will be releasing a security update
for all supported versions tomorrow, Thursday April 4th, 2013. This release
will include a fix for a high-exposure security vulnerability. All users are
strongly urged to apply the update as soon as it is available.

We are providing this advance notice so that users may schedule an update of
their production systems on or shortly after April 4th.

As always, update releases only require installation of packages and a database
system restart. You do not need to dump/restore or use pg_upgrade for this
update release.

Thanks for the heads-up! We'll make sure we have that in. Right now we're building against the standard Ubuntu package but we'll compile from source if they're slow to update that.
