Xapian is written in C++, with bindings to allow use from Python, PHP, Perl, Java, Tcl, C# and Ruby.
What's New in This Release:API:
В· Database replication now handles an exception while applying a changeset
В· If environment variable XAPIAN_MAX_CHANGESETS is set on a replication client
В· then any changesets read are saved so the replicated copy can itself be
В· Use sigsetjmp() and siglongjmp() where available so that the set of blocked
В· signals get restored and the test harness can catch a second incidence of a
В· particular signal in a run. Use sigaction() instead of signal() where
В· available, which allows us to report the address associated with SIGSEGV,
В· SIGFPE, SIGILL, and SIGBUS.
В· Add machinery to check for leaked file descriptors. Currently this requires
В· /proc/self/fd to work (which is present on Linux and some other platforms).
В· Remove the crude ulimit in runtest which has caused problems on some Debian
В· The test harness now explicitly catches const char * exceptions and reports
В· their contents.
