The postgresql-client-common package provides a structure under which
multiple versions of PostgreSQL client programs may be installed at
the same time. It provides a wrapper which selects the right version
for the particular cluster you want to access (with a command line
option, an environment variable, /etc/postgresql-common/user_clusters,
or ~/.postgresqlrc).
PostgreSQL is a fully featured object-relational database management
system. It supports a large part of the SQL standard and is designed
to be extensible by users in many aspects. Its features include ACID
transactions, foreign keys, views, sequences, subqueries, triggers,
outer joins, multiversion concurrency control, and user-defined types
and functions.

[ Christoph Berg ]
* pg_buildext: Mute diff warning about missing debian/tests/
* pg_ctlcluster: Skip systemctl redirect with --bindir.
* pg_createcluster: Drop warning if /tmp is used as socket directory.
Instead, just print the socket directory on cluster creation.
* Update French debconf translations, thanks Julien Patriarca!
(Closes: #809800)
* 9.5 released! Setting as default.
[ Martin Pitt ]
* debian/supported-versions: Switch Ubuntu 16.04 to 9.5.
* debian/supported-versions: Drop obsolete Ubuntu versions.
2015-12-18 - Christoph Berg <>
postgresql-common (171) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Christoph Berg ]
* pgdg: Deprecate 8.4 and 9.0.
* Enable 9.4 for wheezy-backports.
* pg_createcluster: Fix stats_temp_directory handling on 8.3, thanks to
Marco Nenciarini for the inital patch.
* pg_createcluster: Mute verbose chattr output.
* pg_conftool: Don't quote output in '-s'hort mode.
* debian/maintscripts-functions: If the catalog version changes in
devel/alpha versions, save a minimal copy of the old version binaries in
the preinst to enable using pg_upgrade. Use debconf in the postinst to
instruct the user how to proceed with the upgrade.
* pg_buildext: Replace multiple occurrences of PGVERSION on the same line,
and implement replacing for debian/tests/
* t/015_start_stop.t: Validate pg_ctlcluster/systemctl exit codes.
* pg_ctlcluster: Redirect requests to systemd when invoked as root and no
extra pg_ctl or postgres options are given.
Trying to start already running clusters clusters will return 0 now
(was 2 in the native implementation). (Closes: #784878)
* pg_createcluster, pg_renamecluster: Warn on cluster names with dashes.
* pg_upgradecluster: Deprecate ssl_renegotiation_limit in 9.5.
[ Martin Pitt ]
* pg_upgradecluster: Fix "ANALZYE" typo.
* debian/supported-versions: Add Ubuntu 16.04.
* Update Turkish debconf translations, thanks Atila KOÇ!
(Closes: #799274)
* t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Skip postmaster OOM killer adjustment when
running in a container, as these often have restricted privileges.
