The GetData Project is the reference implementation of the Dirfile Standards, a
filesystem-based database format for time-ordered binary data. The Dirfile
database format is designed to provide a fast, simple format for storing and
reading data.

2017-02-08 -
- Fix RPM groups again. Drop useless %clean section.
Update descriptions.
2017-01-27 -
- update to 0.10.0
for all relevant changes see
* This release introduces a new Dirfile Standards Version (also numbered
10), which adds three new field types (INDIR, SARRAY, SINDIR), and also
field namespaces.  This is the first update to the Dirfile Standards
since 2012.
- Added BuildRequires libbz2-devel and flac-devel to support the
corresponding encodings
2016-09-08 -
- update to 0.9.4
for all relevant changes see
* BUG FIX: Arbitrarily-long reads of FLAC-encoded files now work.
Previously, each FLAC frame was written to the start of the
output buffer, overwriting the previous frame, and leaving most
of the buffer uninitialised. Reported by S. J. Benton.
* BUG FIX: Data read from FLAC-encoded 1-byte types are now correct.
Previously, although all data requested was read, only the first
half would be returned, encoded as 16-bit data (i.e., with a
zero-byte between every sample).

- update to 0.9.3
for all relevant changes see
API Changes:
* gd_verbose_prefix() can now be used on invalid dirfiles. Previously,
this function would return GD_E_BAD_DIRFILE when passed an invalid
DIRFILE pointer.
* BUG FIX: When trying to access a LINTERP table file in a non-existent
directory, GetData now reports the correct error (No such file or
directory). Reported by Johanna Nagy.
Library Changes:
* GetData can now read SIE files containing the optional nine-byte
header (which can be created by daisie). When read by GetData,
information in the header is completely ignored (because the GetData
metadata contains all the necessary information). GetData never
writes the header, but calls to gd_putdata() will preserve an
existing header. Calls which re-code the file (like gd_alter_endianness(),
gd_alter_raw(), &c.) will result in an existing header being deleted.
* BUG FIX: Filenames and line numbers appearing in GD_E_FORMAT
error strings returned by gd_error_string() are correct again.
This bug also affected parser metadata sent to a registered parser
* BUG FIX: On platforms where char is signed, the library no longer
rejects field names containing bytes with the top bit set.
- remove patch fix_test_alter_entry_scalar3r.diff included in this
2016-03-27 -
- added patch fix_test_alter_entry_scalar3r.diff to fix the test
alter_entry_scalar3r on 32 bit
2016-03-24 -
- update to 0.9.2
* BUG FIX: When using a FLAC-encoded reference field, gd_nframes()
no longer leaks file descriptors.
* BUG FIX: A segfault in gd_entry_list() introduced in 0.9.1
has been fixed. Reported by Christian Trippe.
* BUG FIX: A descriptor leak on error has been plugged
in gd_desync().
* BUG FIX: A segfault triggered by encountering an I/O error
while writing metadata has been fixed.
* BUG FIX: Memory leaks in the FLAC and ZZIP encodings, plus
single-byte leaks in gd_add_string() and gd_madd_string() have been plugged.
* BUG FIX: gd_alter_entry() and gd_[m]alter_spec() no longer
mangle the values of entry parameters when asked to remove scalar field codes. Reported by Dan Horák.
* PYTHON BUG FIX: Fixed a potential segfault in dirfile.get_carray()
on platforms where sizeof size_t != sizeof int. Reported by Dan Horák.
* PHP BUG FIX: Calling gd_discard or gd_close on a persistent
dirfile now does nothing, instead of closing the Dirfile and corrupting the persistent resource.
