Subject: Muq V -1.46.0 release
I've posted a
release of Muq.
The main change is to cope better with a space efficiency issue
pointed out by Scott Crosby: Internally, vm.t was allocating disk
space in blocks of 64K, which worked well for a single large db but
was resulting in lots of wasted space in small dbs -- something
which became a significant issue when Muq was rewritten to give each
user a separate db file.
This release uses a basic allocation unit of 256 bytes plus
some other tuning to improve space efficiency on this front.
Scott will probably wish to download this version to compare
space usage statistics; I'm uncertain whether anyone else
will want to download this update.
