Berkeley DB Java Edition 5.0.73 is a patch release consisting of several improvements as well as a number of important bug fixes. We strongly recommend that users of the 5.0.x version upgrade to this release. These fixes include:
A JE/HA application may now explicitly transfer the master role, on demand, from the current master to one of a specified set of currently active replica nodes in the replication group.
It is now possible to restore an entire replication group by restoring just one node from a backup.
Added a new method that should be used for performing incremental backups: DbBackup.getLogFilesInSnapshot.
The JE log cleaner now logs a SEVERE level message when the average cleaner backlog increases over time.
The log cleaner will now delete files in the latter portion of the log, even when an HA application is not performing any write operations.
