./databases/libdbi, Database Independent Abstraction Layer for C

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.9.0, Package name: libdbi-0.9.0, Maintainer: cheusov

libdbi implements a database-independent abstraction layer in C, similar to
the DBI/DBD layer in Perl. Writing one generic set of code, programmers can
leverage the power of multiple databases and multiple simultaneous database
connections by using this framework.

Log message:
all: migrate some SourceForge homepage URLs back from https to http


In the above commit, the homepage URLs were migrated from http to https,
assuming that SourceForge would use the same host names for both http and
https connections. This assumption was wrong. Their documentation at
https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/documentation/Custom%20VHOSTs/ states
that the https URLs use the domain sourceforge.io instead.

To make the homepages from the above commit reachable again, pkglint has
been extended to check for reachable homepages. This check is only
enabled when the --network command line option is given.

Each of the homepages that referred to https://$project.sourceforge.net
before was migrated to https://$project.sourceforge.io (27), and if that
was not reachable, to the fallback URL http://$project.sourceforge.net

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
Update databases/libdbi to 0.9.0.


- libdbi now supports using custom driver functions correctly
  (none of the drivers had implemented this feature before
  libdbi-drivers 0.9.0, so this was not really a problem).

- a variety of other bug fixes too numerous to list here, see


- libdbi now supports several independent "instances" per
  process. This makes the library safe to use in programs that
  dlopen() plugins at runtime which in turn are linked against
  libdbi. The new function dbi_initialize_r() creates a handle
  which the functions dbi_shutdown_r(), dbi_set_verbosity_r(),
  dbi_driver_list_r(), dbi_driver_open_r(), and dbi_conn_new_r()
  use to operate on a particular instance. A new function
  dbi_driver_get_instance() helps to determine the instance at
  The old interface (with just one instance per process which is
  managed internally) is still around but deprecated. See the file
  UPGRADING for detailed instructions.

- libdbi now provides functions for managing transactions and

- libdbi now provides a hint to drivers indicating the current
  position in a result set. This allows drivers to implement
  additional optimizations

- the libtool library versioning numbers were now set
  appropriately (they had fallen out of maintenance somehow in
  the past), and starting with this release the release number
  will match the libtool numbering scheme. libtool manages shared
  objects in a way to allow the loader to detect whether an
  application was linked against a compatible version of
  a library. This will avoid runtime errors in future releases
  if backwards-incompatible changes are necessary.

- pgk-config (http://pkg-config.freedesktop.org/wiki/) is now

- if CFLAGS is set in the environment, it is now used
  appropriately in ./configure

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for databases category

Problems found with existing distfiles:
No changes made to the cstore or mariadb55-client distinfo files.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.
