Release notes:

This release brings tentative Oracle support to libzdb thanks to Volodymyr Tarasenko. If you already have Oracle installed on your system, then simply running configure should pick it up. Otherwise if you want to build libzdb with Oracle support, but don't have Oracle installed (like me) it is a bit more work. Here's what I did; download Instant Client (basic and sdk) from http://www.oracle.com/ Create a oci directory someplace and copy header files and libs into this directory. Then use this configure statement; ./configure --with-oci-include=/<path>/oci/include --with-oci-lib=/<path>/oci/lib

The Oracle implementation is not quite yet production ready which emerge from the change log below, though for most practical purposes it should work - according to Volodymyr. If you want to help out testing and improving it, please do.

The SQLite implementation has been further improved by adding a configure option to make SQLite release unused memory. This is very useful as SQLite does not care so much about releasing memory and its memory usage can grow considerably if left unchecked.

Changes in this release:

  • Added tentative support for Oracle. Thanks to Volodymyr Tarasenko, and Sergey Pavlov for implementing this. This implementation does not support BLOB, though CLOB is supported. It will also not run all zdb unit tests, but should be useful for most purposes. It is released with the hope that others may still find it useful and help iron out any remaining issues.

  • Added new convenience zdb.h meta include file which can be used to include all required API interfaces

  • Internal optimizing changes and improvements - we simply adore refactoring

  • SQLite: Clear connection on rollback to prevent SQLite from issue an SQLITE_BUSY error if there are pending selects in progress.

  • SQLite: added a "heap_limit" URL property. Makes SQLite auto-release unused memory if memory usage goes above the specified limit [KB]. Require that SQLite is compiled with the SQLITE_ENABLE_MEMORY_MANAGEMENT option to take effect.

Bug fixes:

  • SQLite: Ensure that the database file is specified in connection URL. Thanks to Bogdan Nicula.

  • PostgreSQL: Implemented Connection_setQueryTimeout()
