Description:

   This update for postgresql, postgresql13 fixes the following issues:

   This update ships postgresql13.

   Upgrade to version 13.1:

   * CVE-2020-25695, bsc#1178666: Block DECLARE CURSOR ... WITH HOLD and
     firing of deferred triggers within index expressions and materialized
     view queries.
   * CVE-2020-25694, bsc#1178667: a) Fix usage of complex connection-string
     parameters in pg_dump, pg_restore, clusterdb, reindexdb, and vacuumdb.
     b) When psql's \connect command re-uses connection parameters, ensure
     that all non-overridden parameters from a previous connection string are
     re-used.
   * CVE-2020-25696, bsc#1178668: Prevent psql's \gset command from modifying
     specially-treated variables.
   * Fix recently-added timetz test case so it works when the USA is not
     observing daylight savings time. (obsoletes postgresql-timetz.patch)
   * https://www.postgresql.org/about/news/2111/

   Changes in postgresql wrapper package:
