Sssgduschh … Package Drone 0.5.0 is out!
Be sure to check out the most recent release on github.
The most notable feature in this release is the support for PostgreSQL. So during the setup of Package Drone there is now a real choice of databases, MySQL or PostgreSQL.
Also have a lots of bugs been fixed. The channel aspects are now versioned and request an update of metadata when required. And finally there is way to backup and restore a single or all channels.
Since both JDBC drivers, MySQL and PostgreSQL, have issues with streaming BLOBs, the next version of Package Drone will introduce a file system layer for storing artifacts. A transparent transition mechanism will ensure that it won’t cause any troubles migrating to the next version.
