User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.1.91 (gnu/linux)

I am happy to announce a new release of the GNU recutils, version 1.3.

The user visible changes in this release are:

- A quite bad (and embarrassing) bug introduced in 1.2 has been
  fixed.  The bug was causing recins, recdel and recset to report
  random integrity failures, due to a uninitialized variable.

- New special field %size, that allows to define constraints in the
  size of record sets.

- Several fixes in the user manual.

- Little portability issue that prevented one of the tests to compile
  in macos x has been fixed.

- Translations updates.

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:
