PBXT 1.0.08 RC2 Released!

The second Release Candidate of PBXT, version 1.0.08, has just been released.

As I have mentioned in my previous blogs (here and here), I did a lot to improve performance for this version.

At the same time I am confident that this release is stable as we now have a large number of tests, including functionality, concurrency and crash recovery. But even more important, the number of users of PBXT has increased significantly since the last RC release, and that is the best test for an engine.

So there has never been a better time to try out PBXT! :)

You can download the source code, and selected binaries from here: primebase.org/download.

Vladimir and I have made a lot of changes, for details checkout the release notes.

Bugs can be reported on Launchpad, here.

There is also a new PBXT mailing list, so if you have any questions this is the best place for them.

PBXT is a high-performance, MVCC-based, transactional storage engine for MySQL. The project is open source (GPL) and hosted on Launchpad. PBXT supports referential integrity, row-level locking and is fully ACID compliant.

For more information please go to the PBXT home at: primebase.org.

Paul,
Congratulations!
As I am always trying to find bugs, here's one:
"including functionality, concurrency and crash and recovery."

I am sure you mean "crash recovery", because the "crash" functionality is already implemented :)

Actually I meant "crash and recovery testing", but you are right, it is not very clear, I will correct it...

Thanks :)
