Release Notes for 1.2.6

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.

  • php/php5/xapian_wrap.h is missing from the release tarball - download it, copy it into php/php5 and you should be able to build as usual.

  • The PHP bindings will not build for a version of PHP built with ZTS enabled (which is the default on Microsoft Windows). Download this zip archive of updated files, unzip and copy them over the shipped files in php/php5 and you should be able to build as usual.
