We are pleased to announce the release of GNU dbm 1.23.  See below
for a complete list of changes.

GNU dbm is a library of database functions that use extensible
hashing and work similar to the standard UNIX dbm.  These routines
are provided to a programmer needing to create and manipulate a
hashed database.  For detailed information, visit

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

Here are the SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:

The SHA256 checksum is base64 encoded, instead of the
hexadecimal encoding that most checksum tools default to.

Noteworthy changes in this release:

* Bucket cache rewritten using a hash table

Change suggested by Terence Kelly.
