[Zope-Annce] ZEO 1.0 beta 5 released
Tue, 30 Oct 2001 17:01:10 -0500 (EST)
The fifth beta release of ZEO 1.0 was released today. It is
available at http://www.zope.org/Products/ZEO. I expect that this
will be the final beta release of ZEO 1.0.
Zope Enterprise Objects (ZEO) provides the ability for multiple
processes to use a single Zope Object Database. ZEO turns the Zope
object system into a distributed architecture, allowing multiple
processors, machines, and networks to act as one website.
The 1.0b5 release fixes one serious bug that was found during use of
the previous release. A version with these fixes has been in
production use on zope.org for more than a week. The complete change
- Fix a bug introduced in earlier beta that caused the storage
server to leak two file descriptors per client connection,
eventually leading to a crash.
- Reduced the amount of memory consumed by the logging
- There were numerous small changes to close() methods and the
test suite to avoid leaking (much) memory when a single process
opens and closes many ClientStorage objects.
