  • v0.10.1 Changes

    June 01, 2021

    Acknowledgements:

    ๐Ÿ†• New features:

    • Added -p option to mdbx_stat utility for printing page operations statistic.
    • Added explicit checking for and warning about using unfit github's archives.
    • Added fallback from OFD locking to legacy non-OFD POSIX file locks on an EINVAL error.
    • Added Plan 9 network file system to the whitelist for an ability to open a DB in exclusive mode.
    • Support for opening from WSL2 environment a DB hosted on Windows drive and mounted via DrvFs (i.e by Plan 9 noted above).

  • v0.10.0 Changes

    May 09, 2021

    Acknowledgements:

    ๐Ÿ†• New features:

    • Added mdbx_env_set_option() and mdbx_env_get_option() for controls various runtime options for an environment (announce of this feature was missed in a previous news).
    • Added MDBX_DISABLE_PAGECHECKS build option to disable some checks to reduce an overhead and detection probability of database corruption to a values closer to the LMDB. The MDBX_DISABLE_PAGECHECKS=1 provides a performance boost of about 10% in CRUD scenarios, and conjointly with the MDBX_ENV_CHECKPID=0 and MDBX_TXN_CHECKOWNER=0 options can yield up to 30% more performance compared to LMDB.
    • Using float point (exponential quantized) representation for internal 16-bit values of grow step and shrink threshold when huge ones (https://github.com/erthink/libmdbx/issues/166). To minimize the impact on compatibility, only the odd values inside the upper half of the range (i.e. 32769..65533) are used for the new representation.
    • Added the mdbx_drop similar to LMDB command-line tool to purge or delete (sub)database(s).
    • Ruby bindings is available now by Mahlon E. Smith.
    • Added MDBX_ENABLE_MADVISE build option which controls the use of POSIX madvise() hints and friends.
    • The internal node sizes were refined, resulting in a reduction in large/overflow pages in some use cases and a slight increase in limits for a keys size to โ‰ˆยฝ of page size.
    • Added to mdbx_chk output number of keys/items on pages.
    • Added explicit install-strip and install-no-strip targets to the Makefile (https://github.com/erthink/libmdbx/pull/180).
    • Major rework page splitting (af9b7b560505684249b76730997f9e00614b8113) for
      • An "auto-appending" feature upon insertion for both ascending and descending key sequences. As a result, the optimality of page filling increases significantly (more densely, less slackness) while inserting ordered sequences of keys,
      • A "splitting at middle" to make page tree more balanced on average.
    • Added mdbx_get_sysraminfo() to the API.
    • Added guessing a reasonable maximum DB size for the default upper limit of geometry (https://github.com/erthink/libmdbx/issues/183).
    • Major rework internal labeling of a dirty pages (958fd5b9479f52f2124ab7e83c6b18b04b0e7dda) for a "transparent spilling" feature with the gist to make a dirty pages be ready to spilling (writing to a disk) without further altering ones. Thus in the MDBX_WRITEMAP mode the OS kernel able to oust dirty pages to DB file without further penalty during transaction commit. As a result, page swapping and I/O could be significantly reduced during extra large transactions and/or lack of memory.
    • Minimized reading leaf-pages during dropping subDB(s) and nested trees.
    • Major rework a spilling of dirty pages to support LRU policy and prioritization for a large/overflow pages.
    • Statistics of page operations (split, merge, copy, spill, etc) now available through mdbx_env_info_ex().
    • Auto-setup limit for length of dirty pages list (MDBX_opt_txn_dp_limit option).
    • Support make options to list available build options.
    • Support make help to list available make targets.
    • Silently make's build by default.
    • Preliminary Python bindings is available now by Noel Kuntze (https://github.com/erthink/libmdbx/issues/147).

    Backward compatibility break:

    • The MDBX_AVOID_CRT build option was renamed to MDBX_WITHOUT_MSVC_CRT. This option is only relevant when building for Windows.
    • The mdbx_env_stat() always, and mdbx_env_stat_ex() when called with the zeroed transaction parameter, now internally start temporary read transaction and thus may returns MDBX_BAD_RSLOT error. So, just never use deprecated mdbx_env_stat()' and callmdbx_env_stat_ex()` with transaction parameter.
    • The build option MDBX_CONFIG_MANUAL_TLS_CALLBACK was removed and now just a non-zero value of the MDBX_MANUAL_MODULE_HANDLER macro indicates the requirement to manually call mdbx_module_handler() when loading libraries and applications uses statically linked libmdbx on an obsolete Windows versions.

    • Online C API reference by Doxygen.
    • Separated enums for environment, sub-databases, transactions, copying and data-update flags.

    ๐Ÿ—„ Deprecated functions and flags:

    • Usage of custom comparators and the mdbx_dbi_open_ex() are deprecated, since such databases couldn't be checked by the mdbx_chk utility. Please use the value-to-key functions to provide keys that are compatible with the built-in libmdbx comparators.
  • v0.8.2 Changes

    July 06, 2020
    • โž• Added support multi-opening the same DB in a process with SysV locking (BSD).
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed warnings & minors for LCC compiler (E2K).
    • Enabled to simultaneously open the same database from processes with and without the MDBX_WRITEMAP option.
    • Added key-to-value, mdbx_get_keycmp() and mdbx_get_datacmp() functions (helpful to avoid using custom comparators).
    • โž• Added ENABLE_UBSAN CMake option to enabling the UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer from GCC/CLANG.
    • ๐Ÿ› Workaround for CLANG bug https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43275.

    • Remapping on-the-fly and of the database file was implemented. Now remapping with a change of address is performed automatically if there are no dependent readers in the current process.
