Announcing DirectoryStorage 1.1.4. This is the first release where the
majority of changes have been driven by the user community... Is this a sign
of DirectoryStorage maturity?
This release fixes several bugs:
1. DirectoryStorage could deadlock ZEO under high load. Thanks to James E.

timestamps of files in snapshot mode. This release fixes the deadlock by
dropping support for file timestamp guarantees. Please read the changelog if
you are relying on file timestamps during snapshots (for example, if you are
using your own custom incremental backup solution) and raise any questions on
dirstorage-users at lists.sourceforge.net
2. Fixed Overflow error in checkds when calculating statistics of very large
storages. Thanks to Paul Winkler for reporting the problem and providing the
3. Fixed incorrect import when generating an error message. Also thanks to
This release has not been through my personal QA process due to a hardware
failure on the workstation where I usually run those tests, therefore I am
labelling this as a beta release for now. I would be grateful for any
