Release Notes for 1.2.16

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.

If you're using PHP 5.4 or 5.5, then subclassing Xapian classes in PHP doesn't currently work properly in all situations. In 1.2.16, smoketest.php skips the problematic testcases so that this issue don't hide other regressions. If you want to subclass Xapian classes in PHP, then you may want to use PHP 5.3 instead for now.

This bug is reproducible with SWIG's testsuite, but it isn't yet clear if it is a bug in the code SWIG generates, or a bug in newer versions of PHP.
