I have set the tag of 'snap20020525' on the CVS database. This cvs
release has the first attempt at ZODB support. There are no guarantees
yet that the database will be forward compatible with official releases.
To enable the support, you must have the following setup:
1) Python 2.0 or greater. Most distributions support Python 2.X and
should have no problems. The one exception is RedHat. RedHat users
can install python 2 from RPMs on the distribution CDs, but you
will need to compile pygnome from sourcecode for python 2.X.
2) StandaloneZODB (or Zope) installed on your system. StandaloneZODB
can be downloaded from http://www.zope.org/Products/StandaloneZODB
You will need to build it from source code, since no official RPMs
are available yet.
If ZODB is installed on your system, GRAMPS will give you the option of
creating a new ZODB or XML database.
If you are willing to try it out, do not use it on your golden database.
Create a new ZODB database, then import (File->Import->Import from
GRAMPS) from you existing database. This will leave your original
database intact, in case something goes wrong.
Large databases should load significantly faster and take up
significantly less memory. Smaller database will probably not see any
advantages, and will encounter larger file sizes.
