VMware Tanzu Greenplum® 
●        VMware Greenplum 6.27.2 is a maintenance release that resolves several issues, no CVE updates.

○        Resolved Issues

■     Resolves an issue where the server didn't clean up the subprogram launched for COPY when used with PROGRAM on transaction abort, which causes child programs to stay connected and potentially hang downstream programs such as gprestore with --on-error-continue.

■     Resolves an issue where DELETE and non-split UPDATE operations on heap tables did not obey the wait_for_replication_threshold GUC.

■     Resolves an issue where Orca incorrectly generated a materialized plan based on the child plan's target list instead of the parent plan's target list.

●        VMware Greenplum 7.2.0 is a minor release that includes new and changed features and resolves several issues.

○        Resolves CVE-2024-0985: PostgreSQL non-owner REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW CONCURRENTLY executes arbitrary SQL.
○        With the 7.2.0 release, mirrorless Greenplum architectures no longer use the HA service to provide high availability of Greenplum primary segments in place of the FTS probe used in mirrored architectures. 
○        Changes

■     The resource group parameter MEMORY_LIMIT has been renamed to MEMORY_QUOTA.

■     The log_checkpoints server configuration parameter is now set to on by default.

■     In order to use VMware Greenplum Text with VMware Greenplum v7.2.0 and higher, you must set the default Python 3 version to 3.9 or higher.

○        Resolved Issues

■     Resolves an issue where the server didn't clean up the subprogram launched for COPY when used with PROGRAM on transaction abort, which causes child programs to stay connected and potentially hang downstream programs such as gprestore with --on-error-continue.

■     Resolves an issue where a memory leak occurs during the merging of leaf partition statistics in the ANALYZE process.

■     Resolves an issue where subprograms inadvertently inherit the parent backend's file descriptors.

■     Resolves an issue where hash aggregates always spill when their expected memory exceeds work_mem, leading to poor performance.

■     Resolves an issue where VMware Greenplum was erroneously reporting errors when users accessed external tables, when the table's LOCATION attribute included the | character as a delimiter for multiple location URIs.

■     ​​Resolves an issue where the options column of the pg_exttable view was missing some information about log errors.
