Subject: Xapian 1.3.1 development snapshot released
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.search.xapian.general

After rather longer than expected, Xapian 1.3.1 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 towards the end of this year seems plausible.

If you make packages of this release, please make sure that they are very
clearly labelled as not being a stable version, and 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).  If they are binary packages you
should also be aware that 1.3.x comes with no guarantee of ABI stability
(code built against 1.3.0 will need rebuilding for 1.3.1).

We've not yet put together release notes or a download page for 1.3.x, but
you can read the full lists of user-visible changes here:

  http://svn.xapian.org/*checkout*/tags/1.3.1/xapian-core/NEWS

  http://svn.xapian.org/*checkout*/tags/1.3.1/xapian-applications/omega/NEWS

  http://svn.xapian.org/*checkout*/tags/1.3.1/xapian-bindings/NEWS

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

The source tarballs are available from here:
