While researching a pgsql-general question, I noticed that commit 73c986adde5d73a5e2555da9b5c8facedb146dcd added several new fields to pg_control without bothering to touch PG_CONTROL_VERSION. Thus, PG_CONTROL_VERSION is still "942" even though the file contents are not at all compatible with 9.4.
It's way too late to do anything about this in 9.5. I wonder though if we should advance PG_CONTROL_VERSION now, presumably to "960", so that at least as of 9.6 the format is correctly distinguished from the 9.4-era format. Or will that just make things even more confusing, given that 9.5 is what it is? regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
