Please be informed that GNU dbm version 1.14 is available for download.
This is a bug-fix release. Please see the end of this message for a list
of noteworthy changes.

GNU dbm is a library for manipulating a database of key/value
pairs.  It provides primitives for storing key/data pairs, searching
and retrieving data by key and deleting a key along with its data. It
also supports sequential iteration over all key/data pairs in a
database. The package also contains utilities for inspecting databases,
exporting them into plaintext files and for loading such files back into
a database.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Here are the MD5 and SHA1 checksums:

5b519751227f743cc57d7fb08cb69f3c  gdbm-1.14.tar.gz
1a97314f631e1d538488ba629fa781dec7409901  gdbm-1.14.tar.gz

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify gdbm-1.14.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 3602B07F55D0C732

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

Here is a list of noteworthy changes in this release:

* Make sure created databases are reproducible

This fixes two longstanding bugs: (1) when allocating database file
header blocks, the unused memory is filled with zeroes; (2) when expanding
a mmapped memory area, the added extent is filled with zeroes.

* Fix build with --enable-gdbm-export

* Fix possible segmentation violation in gdbm_setopt

* Make gdbm_error global thread safe.

* Fix handling of group headers in --help output.
