Revision history for Perl extension BerkeleyDB. 0.22 17th May 2003 * win32 problem with open macro fixed. 0.21 12th May 2003 * adding support for env->set_flags * adding recursion detection * win32 problem with rename fixed. * problem with sub-database name in Recno & Queue fixed. * fixed the mldbm.t test harness to work with perl 5.8.0 * added a note about not using a network drive when running the test harness. * fixed c_pget * added BerkeleyDB::Env::DB_ENV method * added support for encryption * the dbinfo script will now indicate if the database is encrypted * The CLEAR method is now CDB safe. 0.20 2nd September 2002 * More support for building with Berkeley DB 4.1.x * db->get & db->pget used the wrong output macro for DBM filters bug spotted by Aaron Ross. * db_join didn't keep a reference to the cursors it was joining. Spotted by Winton Davies. 0.19 5th June 2002 * Removed the targets that used mkconsts from Makefile.PL. They relied on a module that is not available in all versions of Perl. * added support for env->set_verbose * added support for db->truncate * added support for db->rename via BerkeleyDB::db_rename * added support for db->verify via BerkeleyDB::db_verify * added support for db->associate, db->pget & cursor->c_pget * Builds with Berkeley DB 4.1.x 0.18 6th January 2002 * Dropped support for ErrFile as a file handle. It was proving too difficult to get at the underlying FILE * in XS. Reported by Jonas Smedegaard (Debian powerpc) & Kenneth Olwing (Win32) * Fixed problem with abort macro in XSUB.h clashing with txn abort method in Berkeley DB 4.x -- patch supplied by Kenneth Olwing. * DB->set_alloc was getting called too late in BerkeleyDB.xs. This was causing problems with ActivePerl -- problem reported by Kenneth Olwing. * When opening a queue, the Len proprty set the DB_PAD flag. Should have been DB_FIXEDLEN. Fix provided by Kenneth Olwing. * Test harness fixes from Kenneth Olwing. 0.17 23 September 2001 * Fixed a bug in BerkeleyDB::Recno - reported by Niklas Paulsson. * Added log_archive - patch supplied by Benjamin Holzman * Added txn_discard * Builds with Berkeley DB 4.0.x 0.16 1 August 2001 * added support for Berkeley DB 3.3.x (but no support for any of the new features just yet) 0.15 26 April 2001 * Fixed a bug in the processing of the flags options in db_key_range. * added support for set_lg_max & set_lg_bsize * allow DB_TMP_DIR and DB_TEMP_DIR * the -Filename parameter to BerkeleyDB::Queue didn't work. * added symbol DB_CONSUME_WAIT 0.14 21st January 2001 * Silenced the warnings when build with a 64-bit Perl. * Can now build with DB 3.2.3h (part of MySQL). The test harness takes an age to do the queue test, but it does eventually pass. * Mentioned the problems that occur when perl is built with sfio. 0.13 15th January 2001 * Added support to allow this module to build with Berkeley DB 3.2 * Updated dbinfo to support Berkeley DB 3.1 & 3.2 file format changes. * Documented the Solaris 2.7 core dump problem in README. * Tidied up the test harness to fix a problem on Solaris where the "fred" directory wasn't being deleted when it should have been. * two calls to "open" clashed with a win32 macro. * size argument for hash_cb is different for Berkeley DB 3.x * Documented the issue of building on Linux. * Added -Server, -CacheSize & -LockDetect options [original patch supplied by Graham Barr] * Added support for set_mutexlocks, c_count, set_q_extentsize, key_range, c_dup * Dropped the "attempted to close a Cursor with an open transaction" error in c_close. The correct behaviour is that the cursor should be closed before committing/aborting the transaction. 0.12 2nd August 2000 * Serious bug with get fixed. Spotted by Sleepycat. * Added hints file for Solaris & Irix (courtesy of Albert Chin-A-Young) 0.11 4th June 2000 * When built with Berkeley Db 3.x there can be a clash with the close macro. * Typo in the definition of DB_WRITECURSOR * The flags parameter wasn't getting sent to db_cursor * Plugged small memory leak in db_cursor (DESTROY wasn't freeing memory) * Can be built with Berkeley DB 3.1 0.10 8th December 1999 * The DESTROY method was missing for BerkeleyDB::Env. This resulted in a memory leak. Fixed. * If opening an environment or database failed, there was a small memory leak. This has been fixed. * A thread-enabled Perl it could core when a database was closed. Problem traced to the strdup function. 0.09 29th November 1999 * the queue.t & subdb.t test harnesses were outputting a few spurious warnings. This has been fixed. 0.08 28nd November 1999 * More documentation updates * Changed reference to files in /tmp in examples.t * Fixed a typo in softCrash that caused problems when building with a thread-enabled Perl. * BerkeleyDB::Error wasn't initialised properly. * ANSI-ified all the static C functions in BerkeleyDB.xs * Added support for the following DB 3.x features: + The Queue database type + db_remove + subdatabases + db_stat for Hash & Queue 0.07 21st September 1999 * Numerous small bug fixes. * Added support for sorting duplicate values DB_DUPSORT. * Added support for DB_GET_BOTH & DB_NEXT_DUP. * Added get_dup (from DB_File). * beefed up the documentation. * Forgot to add the DB_INIT_CDB in BerkeleyDB.pm in previous release. * Merged the DBM Filter code from DB_File into BerkeleyDB. * Fixed a nasty bug where a closed transaction was still used with with dp_put, db_get etc. * Added logic to gracefully close everything whenever a fatal error happens. Previously the plug was just pulled. * It is now a fatal error to explicitly close an environment if there is still an open database; a database when there are open cursors or an open transaction; and a cursor if there is an open transaction. Using object destruction doesn't have this issue, as object references will ensure everything gets closed in the correct order. * The BOOT code now checks that the version of db.h & libdb are the same - this seems to be a common problem on Linux. * MLDBM support added. * Support for the new join cursor added. * Builds with Berkeley DB 3.x * Updated dbinfo for Berkeley DB 3.x file formats. * Deprecated the TxnMgr class. As with Berkeley DB version 3, txn_begin etc are now accessed via the environment object. 0.06 19 December 1998 * Minor modifications to get the module to build with DB 2.6.x * Added support for DB 2.6.x's Concurrent Access Method, DB_INIT_CDB. 0.05 9 November 1998 * Added a note to README about how to build Berkeley DB 2.x when using HP-UX. * Minor modifications to get the module to build with DB 2.5.x 0.04 19 May 1998 * Define DEFSV & SAVE_DEFSV if not already defined. This allows the module to be built with Perl 5.004_04. 0.03 5 May 1998 * fixed db_get with DB_SET_RECNO * fixed c_get with DB_SET_RECNO and DB_GET_RECNO * implemented BerkeleyDB::Unknown * implemented BerkeleyDB::Recno, including push, pop etc modified the txn support. 0.02 30 October 1997 * renamed module to BerkeleyDB * fixed a few bugs & added more tests 0.01 23 October 1997 * first alpha release as BerkDB.
