buzhug-0.5 released

Buzhug is a fast, portable, pure-Python database
engine, with a Pythonic syntax (no SQL)

This release introduces a client-server mode,
for applications that need thread- or process-

An optional parameter "mode" is added to the
method create(), in case the base already exists
the result can be to override with the new
field definition, or to open the existing base

buzhug 0.3 released

Changes in this version :
- options for database creation (parameters like 'overrideIfExists')
- faster algorithms for requests on fixed-length fields
- in select(), the value can be a 2-item tuple or list of integers, floats, date or datetime, the result will be the records whose value is between the 2 items
For instance, people aged between 30 and 35 :
This format gives much better results than
db.select(['name'],'x <= age <=y',x=30,y=35)

buzhug-0.1 released

Buzhug is a pure-Python database management software. It uses a Pythonic syntax to create tables, insert, update and delete records, add or delete fields

The tables are Python iterators, so that list comprehensions, familiar to Python programmers, can be used to select records

Buzhug implements all the usual features of a database program, including concurrency control by versioning
