Dear Colleagues, [Apologies for multiple mails]. This mail is to notify you that today, we have released a patch for the ripe-dbase-3.0beta2 software. This patch has several bug fixes. Specifically, this patch includes, amongst other fixes: - TEMPORARY tables in MySQL 3.23 are supported; - a major memory leak on Solaris 8 has been fixed; - CLIENTADDRESS referral now properly passes addresses; - the "-m" queries work now; - memory allocation bug in dbupdate is fixed; - multiple notification problems have been fixed; - improved acknowledgement and notification message formats. You can download this patch from the following URL: ftp://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/dbase/reimp/ripe-dbase-3.0beta3.patch.gz We remind you that you can also test the functionality of this patch for the RIP whois server in 2 ways: - By querying the host reimp.ripe.net at port 43; you will find there a Near-Real-Time Mirror of the RIPE Database. This mirror is in RPSL format. - By using the RIP Test Database. You can send test updates to this database at the address <auto-rip at ripe.net>, and you can query this database at reimp.ripe.net port 4343. We would be very pleased if you could test the patch in both ways, and let us know your opinions. Please send your comments and bug reports to the <db-beta at ripe.net> mailing list.
