# Release of zeptodb 3.0
This is a major update. Please note that there have been significant
changes to the interface via several changes to the options.
* Removed support for Kyoto Cabinet. In order to be able to better
long-term support the program, the decision was made to only support
one DBM library.
* Overhaul of options. All zeptodb programs now support a set of
common options: `--mmap-size`, `--cache-size`, `--block-size`,
`--no-mmap`, and `--no-lock` (in addition to the usual help, usage,
version and verbose options). These options control how the
database is opened. Please note that the `--num-buckets` option for
zdbc has been removed since it was only appropriate for Kyoto
Cabinet and was a misnomer for GDBM (it's effectively been replaced
by `--cache-size`). The `--sync` option has also been added for
commands that write changes to the database. Please see the
documentation for a full explanation of these options.
* `zdbc` always creates a new database. `zdbc` now overwrites a
database if it's called on an existing file.
