We'd like to let you know that JE 4.0.103 is now at http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/berkeley-db/je/index.html. The patch release contains both small features and bug fixes, many of which were prompted by feedback on this forum. Some items to note:
- New CacheMode values for more control over cache policies, and new statistics to enable better interpretation of caching behavior. These are just one initial part of our continuing work in progress to make JE caching more efficient.
- Fixes for proper cache utilization calculations when using the -XX:+UseCompressedOops JVM option.
- A variety of other bug fixes.
There is no file format or API changes. As always, we encourage users to move promptly to this new release.
