From: Eric Wong <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: [ANNOUNCE] public-inbox 1.7.0 Date: Thu, 04 Nov 2021 07:52:00 +0000 [thread overview] Message-ID: <2021-11-04-public-inbox-1.7.0-finally-rele@sed> (raw) Another big release focused on multi-inbox search and scalability. Special thanks to Konstantin Ryabitsev and Kyle Meyer for numerous bug reports and documentation help. * general changes - config file parsing is 2x faster with 50K inboxes - deduplication ignores whitespace differences within address fields - "PRAGMA optimize" is now issued on commits for SQLite 3.18+ * public-inbox-extindex A new Xapian + SQLite index able to search across several inboxes. This may be configured to replace per-inbox Xapian DBs, (but not per-inbox SQLite indices) and speed up manifest.js.gz generation. See public-inbox-extindex-format(5) and public-inbox-extindex(1) manpages for more details. Using it with "--all" speeds up various multi-inbox operations in PublicInbox::WWW, public-inbox-nntpd, and public-inbox-imapd. * read-only public-inbox-daemon (-httpd, -nntpd, -imapd): libgit2 may be used via Inline::C to avoid hitting system pipe and process limits. See public-inbox-tuning(7) manpage for more details. * various memory usage reductions and workarounds for leaks in Encode <3.15, these mainly affect PublicInbox::WWW * public-inbox-nntpd - startup is 6x faster with 50K inboxes if using -extindex * PublicInbox::WWW - mboxrd search results are returned in reverse Xapian docid order, so more recent results are more likely to show up first - d: and dt: search prefixes allow "approxidate" formats supported by "git log --since=" - manifest.js.gz generation is ~25x faster with -extindex - minor navigation improvements in search results HTML page * lei - local email interface An experimental, subject-to-change, likely-to-eat-your-mail tool for personal mail as well as interacting with public-inboxes on the local filesystem or over HTTP(S). See lei(1), lei-overview(7), and other lei-* manpages for details. This is only ready-to-use w.r.t. external public-inbox instances, but mail synchronization for personal mail remains clunky. * public-inbox-index - non-strict (Subject-based) threading supports non-ASCII characters, reindexing is necessary for old messages with non-ASCII subjects. - --batch-size is now 8M on 64-bit systems for throughput improvements, higher values are still advised for more powerful hardware. * public-inbox-watch - IMAP and NNTP code shared with lei, fixing an off-by-one error in IMAP synchronization for single-message IMAP folders. - \Deleted and \Draft messages ignored for IMAP, as they are for Maildir. - IMAP and NNTP connection establishment (including git-credential prompts) ordering is now tied to config file order. Compatibility: * Rollbacks all the way to public-inbox 1.2.0 remain supported Internal changes * public-inbox-index switched to new internal IPC code shared with lei Please report bugs via plain-text mail to: email@example.com See archives at https://public-inbox.org/meta/ for all history. See https://public-inbox.org/TODO for what the future holds.
