I am happy to announce a new release of the GNU recutils, version 1.7.

The changes in this release are:

- Utilities:

  + rec2csv now supports a -d option to change the delimiter
    character in CSV files.
  + It is now possible to specify several recfiles in the
    command line containing anonymous records.

- Format:

  + Support for restricting the fields that can appear in records
    with the new %allowed special field.
  + If a tab separates a field name and a field value is now
    ignored and not considered part of the field value.

- librec:

  + The current version of the library is now 1.

- Emacs mode:

  + It now possible to jump several records while navigating
    using a prefix argument to the next/previous commands.

- Documentation:

  + The examples in the manual have been improved, and well as many
    other aspects: formatting, English, etc.  Special thanks to Karl
    Berry for pointing out the problems and suggesting solutions.

- Internal cleanup and code factorization.

- Many, many, many bug fixes :D

The release can be found in the GNU ftp:

Alternatively, will automatically
redirect to a nearby mirror.

                          About GNU recutils

GNU recutils is a set of tools and libraries to access human-editable,
text-based databases called recfiles.  The data is stored as a
sequence of records, each record containing an arbitrary number of
named fields.  Advanced capabilities usually found in other data
storage systems are supported by GNU recutils: data types, data
integrity (keys, mandatory fields, etc) as well as the ability of
records to refer to other records (sort of foreign keys).  Despite its
simplicity, recfiles can be used to store medium-sized databases.

Please see the GNU recutils homepage for more information:
