Release Notes for 1.2.11

Please don't "report" new problems by adding them here as they may not be noticed. Instead use the bug tracker or mailing lists to report problems. You'll certainly get a much quicker response that way.

Any patch files linked to below have been generated with the diff utility, and can be applied with the GNU patch utility to a source tree, which you'll then need to recompile and reinstall. If you aren't already familiar with applying patches, see these helpful instructions (courtesy of the Drupal project, but very little is Drupal-specific).

We've had a report that the merge tool supplied with TortoiseSVN gives an error if you try to apply a patch where the line numbers are offset (as they may be for a backported fix). If you hit this issue, please use GNU patch instead.


1.2.11 had its library version information incorrectly set. This resulted in the shared library having an incorrect SONAME - e.g. on Linux, instead of Release 1.2.12 was made to correct this problem.


No known issues.


If you're using PHP 5.4, then subclassing Xapian classes in PHP doesn't currently work properly and smoketest.php will fail with a segmentation fault if you run make check. The wrappers seem to work otherwise. If you want to subclass Xapian classes in PHP, then use PHP 5.3 instead for now.

It isn't yet clear if this is a bug in the code SWIG generates, or a bug in PHP 5.4.
