PumpkinDB v0.2.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2017-06-07 // over 2 years ago
  • 🚀 In this release, the most notable change was splitting of PumpkinDB into
    🏗 multiple crates. This enables PumpkinDB users to build custom systems
    (embedded and client-server ones) that use PumpkinDB as an engine. Also,
    🏗 pumpkinscript and pumpkindb_client crates allow building Rust applications
    that use PumpkinDB as remote clients. pumpkindb_mio_server crate simplifies
    🏗 developing custom PumpkinDB server builds.

    A confusing "word" term has been changed to "instruction" to provide a clearer
    indication of the concept behind it.

    We've also introduced more conventions around numbers (especially
    signed and unsigned sized integers, as well as floats) and added respective
    instructions to the library.

    🎉 Initial UUID support has been added. Cursor API surface has been reduced and
    is much easier to comprehend now.

    Internally, a lot has changed. A new messaging system (it is now available
    not only through the server component, but pumpkindb_engine as well). Dispatcher
    trait allows defining custom sets of instruction "modules" and is flexible enough
    👍 to support both static and dynamic dispatching.

    And, of course, a number of bugs has been spotted and some of them were even
    🛠 fixed. We've also optimized a number of things and found out that there's a lot
    ⚡️ more to optimize in the upcoming versions!

    🚀 This is the first release with published library crates on crates.io

    🚀 Also, this release includes statically built versions of PumpkinDB server
    🐧 and terminal for Linux (using musl). This is an experimental build as in
    the future we might need to depend on some dynamically libraries.

    🆕 New contributors: alex, Christoph Herzog, Guillaume Gauvrit, Matteo Semenzato and Stuart Hinson.

    Thank you!

Previous changes from v0.1.0

  • 🚀 This is PumpkinDB's first release (ever!), the intention of which is to finally provide some binaries to those who want to play with PumpkinDB but can't be 🏗 bothered to install Rust and switch to nightly builds just yet!

    Don't expect it to be very stable or feature-complete. Those were the non-goals this time around!

    We'd really like you to try it out and let us know what you think about it!
