Archiveopteryx 3.0.0

3.0.0 was released on on 2008-08-25.

This is a feature release and we expect to release 3.0.1 soon. The new features in 3.0.0 include:

The bugfixes in 2.11 are also in this release. In addition there are some unremarkable changes:


If you are upgrading from 2.x, please run "aox stop" before you install the new release (because the location of the pid files has changed, so the new aox won't be able to stop the running server).

The 2.11 bugfix release uses a database that is compatible with this release, so if you upgrade from 2.x to 3.0.0 and encounter problems, you can fall back safely to 2.11.

Although we support PostgreSQL 8.1.x, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to PostgreSQL 8.3 to get better performance from this release.

The next 3.0.x bugfix release is 3.0.1. We have not decided on a release date yet.
