After nearly a year of testing and refinement, RelStorage 1.4.0 is
finally finished. Thanks to the various companies and individuals who
contributed, I think this is the best-tested release yet. For anyone
who has not been following along, here are some of the new features in
- You can now choose not to keep old revisions of objects, making
RelStorage more appropriate for storing session data.
- The memcached integration is now more effective at getting cache hits.
Also, there is now a small in-process cache for sharing pickles
- It is now compatible with ZODB 3.10, which is to be released soon.
- RelStorage now uses bulk SQL operations to minimize the number of
round trips to the database.
- Special cases occurring in replicated databases are now detected and
- The code has been reorganized to make it easier to keep all the
supported databases working equally well.
I recommend this release to all new users and to users of version 1.2.0,
the previous stable release.
