Getdown v1.6.4 Release Notes

Release Date: 2017-09-17 // about 4 years ago
    • 👷 digest.txt (and digest2.txt) computation now uses parallel jobs. Each resource to be verified is a single job and the jobs are doled out to a thread pool with #CPUs threads. This allows large builds to proceed faster as most dev machines have more than one core.

    • Resource verification is now performed in parallel (similar to the digest.txt computation, each resource is a job farmed out to a thread pool). For large installations on multi-core machines, this speeds up the verification phase of an installation or update.

    • 0️⃣ Socket reads now have a 30 second default timeout. This can be changed by passing -Dread_timeout=N (where N is seconds) to the JVM running Getdown.

    • 🛠 Fixed issue with failing to install a downloaded and validated _new file.

    • ➕ Added support for "strict comments". In this mode, Getdown only treats # as starting a comment if it appears in column zero. This allows # to occur on the right hand side of configuration values (like in file names). To enable, put strict_comments = true in your getdown.txt file.
