recutils 1.4 released

Item posted by Jose E. Marchesi <jemarch> on Thu 03 Nov 2011 05:50:24 PM UTC.

I am happy to announce a new release of the GNU recutils, version 1.4.

The user visible changes in this release are:

  • Support for encryption with the new %confidential special field.
  • Support for named types with the new %typedef special field.
  • Support for sorting with the new %sort special field.
  • Recutils support for org-babel is now included in the distribution as ob-rec.el. It allows to read rec data into org documents in both raw and table formats.
  • It is now possible to use double quotes for delimiting string literals in selection expressions, as well as single quotes. Unescaped newline characters are also supported.
  • recfix now supports several operations: check, sort, encrypt and decrypt.
  • recins now generates parseable locale independent dates when generating time-stamps in auto-fields.
  • The manual has been vastly improved.
  • Lots of bug fixes.

The release can be found in the GNU ftp: ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/recutils/recutils-1.4.tar.gz

Alternatively, http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/recutils/ will automatically redirect to a nearby mirror.

About GNU recutils

GNU recutils is a set of tools and libraries to access human-editable, text-based databases called recfiles. The data is stored as a sequence of records, each record containing an arbitrary number of named fields. Advanced capabilities usually found in other data storage systems are supported by GNU recutils: data types, data integrity (keys, mandatory fields, etc) as well as the ability of records to refer to other records (sort of foreign keys). Despite its simplicity, recfiles can be used to store medium-sized databases.
