  • Fix crashes related to calling Database::reopen() or WritableDatabase::cancel() when one of the Btree tables has gained a level, affecting flint, chert and brass. Fixes #675, reported by Germán M. Bravo.
  • Fix buggy handling of rare cases of OP_PHRASE (with window > number of terms) and OP_NEAR. Fixes #653, reported by Jean-Francois Dockes.
  • Fix sort by value when multiple databases are in use and one or more are remote. This change necessitated a minor version bump in the remote protocol. Fixes #674, reported by Dylan Griffith. If you are upgrading a live system which uses the remote backend, upgrade the servers before the clients.
  • Omega's $prettyurl command has been enhanced - it decodes valid UTF-8 sequences, as well as some ASCII symbols which are safe in practice.
  • Assorted portability improvements.
