Xapian 1.2.20 can now be downloaded from:


Since 1.2.16, release tarballs are compressed with xz instead of gzip,
as it provides much better compression, without being too slow to
decompress.  (For now at least, Search::Xapian is still gzipped.)

We decided not to provide multiple formats for the downloads.  The size
reduction provided by xz is greater than the size of the xz source code
download, so installing it doesn't seem an onerous requirement.

The wiki has a summary of the most notable changes:


A big thanks to the following people for helping to make this release
a reality: Sébastien Debrard, James Aylett, Austin Clements, Vlad
Shablinsky, Felix Ostmann, Will Crawford.

If I've missed anyone out, you can claim an extra big thankyou.

As always, if you encounter problems, please report them here, or to
the bug-tracker: http://xapian.org/bugs

Since 1.2.17, I'm providing detached GPG signatures for each of the release
tarballs (for each tarball, the signature is in a corresponding file
with ".asc" appended).

Here are the SHA1 checksums of the released files:

And SHA256 checksums (more secure, but sha256sum is less widely installed):
