Release Notes: Virtually unlimited global variable sizes. Transport Layer Security (TLS/SSL) for replication. An easier path when FIPS 140-2 certification is required for encrypted databases. Relink recursive: processes can explicitly link new versions of routines even when they have prior versions of routines with the same name already on the process stack. SOCKET device support for local sockets (also known as UNIX domain sockets. Faster database reads, especially when large numbers of processes (thousands) concurrently access a database file.
Release Notes: Adds IPv6 support for TCP connections. All GT.M uses of TCP/IP except the deprecated "TCP" devices use TCP over both IPv4 and IPv6. Maintains $KEY for terminal operation and introduces the [NO]EMPT[ERM] device parameter for terminal devices, which allows an "erase" character to terminate a READ when there are no characters in the input buffer. Improves critical section management and deadlock detection. Simplifies operational management. Provides a number of other enhancements, improvements in robustness, and bugfixes.
Release Notes: GT.M 6.0-002 and the new GTMJI GT.M Java plugin together extend the usefulness of both GT.M and Java by enabling in-process calls between Java and M application code. Together, they make the power of GT.M available to Java application code, and allow GT.M applications to access functionality written in a popular programming language. 6.0-002 implements the changes within GT.M needed to allow access from and to Java application code, and GTMJI enables Java application code to call and be called by M code. GTMJI is released as source code to be compiled and installed on each system.
Release Notes: This release adds a number of useful enhancements to GT.M.
Release Notes: Database file limits were significantly extended. The maximum supported key size was increased from 255 to 1,019 bytes. The new maximum global variable node size is 1,048,576 bytes (1 MB). The maximum size of a database file is now 1,040,187,392 (992 Mi) blocks. Operationally, MUPIP REORG TRUNCATE now reclaims and frees additional types of unused space from database files. The IO impact of MUPIP INTEG FAST has been reduced. There were also smaller enhancements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release has some timely bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release adds major new functionality and platform support, including database encryption and alias variables. The database file size limit has been increased from 128M to 224M blocks. There are performance enhancements, among others, especially for applications that use Transaction Processing. Compilation is faster and uses less memory. MUPIP LOAD is much faster in UTF-8 mode. There are smaller enhancements, remedied misfeatures, and bugfixes.
Release Notes: With this release, GT.M goes to 64 bits on the x86_64 platform. From the source tarball, both 32- and 64-bit binaries can be built. The 64-bit version also generates object files that can be put in standard shared libraries with ld.
Release Notes: Unicode 5.0.0 support was added.
Release Notes: The GT.CM network server now uses GNP (Greystone Network Protocol). There are some changes in I/O, close to the 95 standard.
