Subject: Xapian 1.3.0 development snapshot released
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.search.xapian.general
Date: Wednesday 14th March 2012 06:14:07 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Xapian 1.3.0 is now available.

Please note that 1.3.x releases are development releases - they are made
to encourage earlier and wider use and testing of new and changed code
so that 1.4.0 can both happen sooner and be better than otherwise.

Our record with 1.1.x was very good - all the bugs I am aware of were
either in new features, or were also present in the corresponding 1.0.x
release.  But if you main concern is minimising risk of accidental
breakage, sticking with 1.2.x would be prudent, at least for deployment.

The 1.3.x development series will lead to a stable 1.4.x release series.
We don't have a date set, but I'd expect it to be later this year.

If you make binary packages of this release, please make sure that
they are very clearly labelled as not being a stable version, and if
possible ensure that they can be installed in parallel with the stable
version (the default paths and program suffix are set to help make this
easier).  I would probably recommend not rushing to package this right
away.

I've not yet put together release notes or a download page yet, but
you can read the full lists of user-visible changes here:

As always, if you encounter problems, please report them here, or to
the bug-tracker: http://xapian.org/bugs
