Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2020:1520-2
Rating:             moderate
References:         #1166821 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Basesystem 15-SP2

   An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.


   This update for psqlODBC provides the following fixes:

   - Update to 12.01.0000:
     * Fix the bug that causes "Error : A parameter cannot be found that
       matches parameter name".
       + Enclose the command part * Find_VSDir $vc_ver * with parentheses so
         that the subsequent * -ne "" * isn't considered to be a parameter.
     * Cope with the removal of pg_class.relhasoids in PG12 correctly when
       retrieving updatable cursors.
   - Changes in 12.00.0000:
     * Fix the bug that SQLGetDescField() for Field SQL_DESC_COUNT returns
       SQLINTEGER value which should be of type SQLSMALLINT.
     * SQLGetTypeInfo() filters SQL_TYPE_DATE, SQL_TYPE_TIME and
       SQL_TYPE_TIMESTAMP for ODBC 2.x applications.
     * Added support for scalar functions TIMESTAMPADD(), TIMESTAMPDIFF() and
     * The macro IS_NOT_SPACE() is used for not pointers but integers.
     * Fix a crash bug when SQLProcedureColumns() handles
       satisfies_hash_partition(). The proargmodes column of
       satisfies_hash_partition()'s pg_proc entry is not null but the
       proallargtypes column is null.

   - Changes in 11.01.0000:
     * Correct the rgbInfoValue returned by
     * Because the field 'relhasoids' was dropped in PG12, psqlodbc drivers
       would have some problems with PG12 servers.
     * Register drivers {PostgreSQL ANSI} and {PostgreSQL Unicode} during
       installation on 64bit Windows so that users could use the same
       connection strings in both x86 and x64 environments.
     * Correct the rgbInfoValue returned by
     * Fix a typo in SQLForeignKeys-ResultSet-Column. 'deferrablity' should
       be 'DEFERRABILITY'.
     * Correct the rgbInfoValue returned by SQLGetInfo(..,
       or SQL_STRING_FUNCTIONS, ..).
     * Bug fix: do not forget to set parameter numbers while handling escaped
       ODBC functions.
     * Fix test_connection() in setup.c so that settings of conn_settings and
       pqopt option are reflected properly.

   - Changes in 11.00.0000:
     * Remove obsolete maps pointed out.
     * Remove connSettings option and/or pqopt option from the
       OutConnectionString parameter of SQLDriverConnect() when each option
       doesn't exist in InConnectionString parameter.
     * The parameters should be cast because parameters of concat() function
       are variadic "any".
     * Add an alias DX of *Database* keyword for connection strings to aviod
       the use of "database" keyword which has a special meaning in some apps
       or middlewares.
     * Numeric items without precision are unlimited and there's no natural
       map between SQL data types. Add an option *Numeric(without precision)
     * Fix a bug that SQLSpecialColumns() returns oid/xmin incorrectly when a
       table does not exist.
   - Fix build with PostgreSQL 11 that does not have pg_config in the regular
     devel package anymore. (bsc#1166821)

   - Changes in 10.03.0000:
     * Put back the handling of lock_CC_for_rb variable. The variable
       lock_CC_for_rb should be held per connection.
     * Fix SQLGetTypeInfo() so that it filters SQL_TYPE_DATE, SQL_TYPE_TIME
       or SQL_TYPE_TIMESTAMP for ODBC 2.x applications.
     * Revise ConfigDSN() so that it handles the 4th parameter(lpszAttribues)
     * Fix a crash bug when handling error messages. Also modified some error
     * Let SQLTables() or SQLTablePrivileges() show partition tables.
     * Fix build on Solaris defined(__SUNPRO_C) using Solaris Studio.
     * Reduce DB access to pg_class or pg_index by caching relhasoids,
       relhassubclass etc. It would improve the performance of SQLSetPos() or
       SQLBulkOperations() very much in some cases.

   - Changes in 10.02.0000:
     * It's safer to call setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "") than calling
       setlocale(LC_ALL, "")
     * Avoid replacing effective notice messages.
     * Handle MALLOC/REALLOC errors while fetching tuples more effectively.
     * Make SQLSetPos(SQL_DELETE/SQL_REFRESH) more effective. Because queries
       calling currtid(2) like select .. from .. where ctid=currtid2(.., ..)
       cause Seq Scan, their execution may be very slow. It is better to
       execute queries using subqueries like select .. from .. where
       ctid=(select currtid2(.., ..)) because they cause Tid Scan.
     * Fix a crash bug in AddDeleted().
