This version reduces calls to read() from 3 to 1 when maximum record
size is less than 64KB, falling back to 5.0.21 behavior when dealing
with records with greater size.
This version fixes bugs 5, 6 and 7 from the sourceforge project page
5: dbh_set_data() not updating data when growing record size
6: strncmp() should be replaced by memcmp()
7: Excessive syscalls with tiny read() calls
This version targets Windows, by means of cross-compilation from Linux.
Fixes for mingw-w64 cross compilation on ArchLinux box.
Added PKGBUILD for easy cross compilation from ArchLinux
Added function dbh_find_top(), variant for dbh_find() I really need to
fix documentation on these functions with examples.
Remove INVALIDATE flag from msync (not allowed with ASYNC in FreeBSD)
Minor bugfixes detected with Coverity analysis
Include performance test code and graphs in tarball
Tweaks and performance/comparison tests with gdbm.
Debian-7.6, OpenSUSE-13.1, Fedora-21 binaries.
Fixed a few typos from 5.0.14 which broke compilation.
Fixed incorrect references to LGPL, license is GPLv3+.
Fixed incorrect sem_destroy call for named semaphore. This incorrect call
affected parallel safe mode in FreeBSD.
Outstanding bugs (incorrect installation of man files, unnecessary -L directive) fixed and closed.
Parallel safe mode is now controlled by means of named semaphores which is
more robust, since share memory control block is protected against race
RPMs are built and lintian tested on OpenSUSE-12.3.
rpm -U [rpm package]
DEBs are built and lintian tested on Ubuntu-12.04:
dpkg -i [deb package]
download ebuild and manifest to dev-db/libdbh2/
sudo ebuild [ebuild file] merge
As of version 5.0.8, windows is supported. Version 5.0.8 includes
a binary installer, compiled and tested with Mingw-64.
Note: Ebuild, tarball and package names have been changed to a setting
which is congruent with rpm, deb and ebuild methods.
