Version 4.12 of the PostgreSQL Buildfarm client released.

I have released version 4.12 of the buildfarm client.

In addition to numerous bug fixes, it has the following:

  • the global option branches_to_build can now be 'HEADPLUSLATESTn' for any single digit n
  • there is a new module TestCollateLinuxUTF8
  • there is a new module TestDecoding which is enabled by default, (but does nothing on MSVC systems, where we can't yet run these tests.) This runs the new contrib test_decoding module, which can't run under "make installcheck".
  • running "perl -cw" on the scripts will now give you failures for missing perl modules on almost every platform. The only exception should now be on older Msys systems.
  • improvements in the sample config file to make it better organized and better reflecting of best practice.
  • find_typdefs is now supported on OSX

In addition I recently enhanced the HOWTO at covering especially best current git practice.

Thanks to Tom Lane for suggestions and complaints which are behind a number of the improvements and fixes, and for some code for OSX find_typedefs.

The release is available at
