KirbyBase 2.5.1


#1

I would like to announce the release of version 2.5.1 of KirbyBase, a
small, pure-Ruby database management system that stores it’s data in
plain-text files.

You can download it here:

Windows: http://www.netpromi.com/files/KirbyBase_Ruby_2.5.1.zip
Linux/Unix: http://www.netpromi.com/files/KirbyBase_Ruby_2.5.1.tar.gz
Gem: http://www.netpromi.com/files/KirbyBase-2.5.1.gem

This is a mainly a bug-fix release:

  • Fixed a bug that had broken encrypted tables.

  • Changed KBTable#pack method so that it raises an error if trying to
    execute when connect_type==:client.

  • Fixed a bug where it was possible to insert records missing a required
    field if using a hash. Thanks to Adam S. for this.

  • Fixed a bug that occurred when you tried to update records using a
    block and you tried to reference a field in the current record inside
    the block. Much thanks to Assaph M. for reporting this.

  • Fixed a bug that allowed you to have duplicate column names. Thanks
    to Assaph M. for spotting this.

  • Changed the way KBTable#set works with memo/blob fields.

  • Started creating unit tests.

  • Changed the KBTable#clear method to return number of records deleted.
    Thanks to Assaph M. for this enhancement.

  • Moved #build_header_string from KBEngine class to KirbyBase class.

  • Added KirbyBase::VERSION constant.

  • Cleaned up the manual a bit. Thanks to Rich M. for feedback.

I would like to thank all of the people who provided bug fixes,
suggestions, and ideas for version 2.5.1.
Enjoy!
