Babelfish 1.4.0 contains fixes and features that improve the user experience.
- Fixed critical issues in Babelfish due to incorrect handling of user input for some application features. This is tracked in https://github.com/babelfish-for-postgresql/babelfish_extensions/security/advisories/GHSA-m399-rrc8-j6fj.
High priority stability enhancements
Fixed error handling in
sp_preparecalls which can cause a server crash when a large number of parameters are sent by the application. Babelfish currently supports a maximum of 100 parameters for a procedure or function.
Fixed error handling in SSL/TLS handshake for some client drivers.
- Fixed the
babelfishpg_tdsextension to correctly allocate the shared memory size used by the extension.
Upgrading to the new version
If you’re running Babelfish in a managed environment, please check your vendor’s instructions for upgrading.
Babelfish 1.4.0 is compatible with the version 1.x.x of Babelfish; 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] (https://babelfishpg.org/docs/installation/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:
