Dear All, this mail is to notify you of the further advancements in the development of the new implementation of the RIPE Database software. Today, we have freezed the source code into a new snapshot. There has been a certain amount of changes from the last snapshot. Multiple repository support has been added, a test mode is now available to update the database, MIME messages are now supported by dbupdate, the configuration module has been integrated, and many bugs have been fixed. You can download this last snapshot at the following URL: ftp://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/dbase/reimp/RIP-0.4.0beta1.tar.gz You can also test the functionality of this snapshot of 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. - By using the RIP Test Database. You can send test updates to this database at the address <rip-test at ripe.net>, and you can query this database at reimp.ripe.net port 4343. This database is running in test mode, so you can create any type of objects there, even maintainers. We would be very pleased if you could test the new implementation 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. To subscribe to this list, send a message to <majordomo at ripe.net> with the line: subscribe db-beta in the body of your letter. This is a moderated mailing list so some delays in subscription are possible. Regards, Filippo Portera ____________________________ RIPE Database Administration.
