Upgrading to the new version
If you’re running Babelfish in a managed environment, please check your vendor’s instructions for upgrading.
Babelfish 1.2.1 is compatible with the latest major version (Babelfish 1.2.0); a dump/restore is not required to upgrade to the newer version. To upgrade:
Install the new binaries; for details, see Compiling Babelfish From Source.
Start the new server.
Update the modified extensions.
To update the extensions that have changed since the last release, connect to the PostgreSQL endpoint of the Babelfish database and execute the following statements from a single session in this order:
ALTER EXTENSION "babelfishpg_common" UPDATE; ALTER EXTENSION "babelfishpg_tsql" UPDATE;
Please note that the extension owner must invoke ALTER EXTENSION. For this release, the
babelfish_money extensions don’t include any SQL-level changes and need not be updated.
After the extensions are updated, you can check the extension version from the PostgreSQL port:
