Release Notes for 1.2.7

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.


No known issues.

  • The PHP bindings will not build for a version of PHP built with ZTS enabled (which is the default on Microsoft Windows). If you are using such a version of PHP, please use xapian-bindings 1.2.6 and apply the workaround in the 1.2.6 release notes.
