GT.M V5.0-000 for Alpha/AXP available

The binaries for GT.M on Alpha/AXP OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX are available.

This is the first release of GT.M for Alpha/AXP at Source Forge under the GNU General Public License (GPL - see\). Fidelity plans to follow up with the source code within the next few months. As was the case with the release of GT.M on x86 GNU/Linux under GPL, we had to develop procedures to convert from Fidelity's internal directory structures to those more suited to Source Forge. This work will be scheduled into the normal workflow of the developers and the source code will be released when that is completed. Meanwhile, the binaries are available for use.

The GT.M Programmers Guide, Administration and Operations Guide, and Messages and Recovery Procedures manual are available at the GT.M user documentation site (

Each package consists of two files, one is the main GT.M distribution. The other is needed only for migrating databases to V5.0-000 from earlier releases. Refer to the GT.M Database Migration technical bulletin ( for details.

We hope you find GT.M on Alpha/AXP to be useful. Please consider funding GT.M work by purchasing support if you put it into production.
