Release 1.18
Changes are:

* Update version number to 1.18
* Replace the basic fprintf call with a call to fwrite in order to
  work around the apparent compiler optimization/rewrite failure that we are
  seeing with the new toolchain/iOS SDKs provided with Xcode6 and iOS8.
* Fix ALL the header guards.
* Createed a with the LevelDB project description.
* A new CONTRIBUTING file.
* Don't implicitly convert uint64_t to size_t or int.  Either preserve it as
  uint64_t, or explicitly cast. This fixes MSVC warnings about possible value
  truncation when compiling this code in Chromium.
* Added a DumpFile() library function that encapsulates the guts of the
  "leveldbutil dump" command. This will allow clients to dump
  data to their log files instead of stdout. It will also allow clients to
  supply their own environment.
* leveldb: Remove unused function 'ConsumeChar'.
* leveldbutil: Remove unused member variables from WriteBatchItemPrinter.
* OpenBSD, NetBSD and DragonflyBSD have _LITTLE_ENDIAN, so define
  PLATFORM_IS_LITTLE_ENDIAN like on FreeBSD. This fixes:
   * issue #143
   * issue #198
   * issue #249
* Switch from <cstdatomic> to <atomic>. The former never made it into the
  standard and doesn't exist in modern gcc versions at all.  The later contains
  everything that leveldb was using from the former.
  This problem was noticed when porting to Portable Native Client where no memory
  barrier is defined.  The fact that <cstdatomic> is missing normally goes
  unnoticed since memory barriers are defined for most architectures.
* Make Hash() treat its input as unsigned.  Before this change LevelDB files
  from platforms with different signedness of char were not compatible. This
  change fixes: issue #243
* Verify checksums of index/meta/filter blocks when paranoid_checks set.
* Invoke all tools for iOS with xcrun. (This was causing problems with the new
  XCode 5.1.1 image on pulse.)
* include <sys/stat.h> only once, and fix the following linter warning:
  "Found C system header after C++ system header"
* When encountering a corrupted table file, return Status::Corruption instead of
* Support cygwin as build platform, patch is from
* Fix typo, merge patch from
* Fix typos and comments, and address the following two issues:
  * issue #166
  * issue #241
* Add missing db synchronize after "fillseq" in the benchmark.
* Removed unused variable in SeekRandom: value (issue #201)


Release LevelDB 1.17
- Cleanup: delete unused IntSetToString

  It was added in http://cr/19491949 (and was referenced at the time).
  The last reference was removed in http://cr/19507363.

  This fixes warning/error with pre-release crosstoolv18:
    'std::string leveldb::{anonymous}::IntSetToString(const std::set<long unsigned int>&)' defined but not used [-Werror=unused-function]

- Added arm64 and and armv7s to IOS build as suggested on leveldb mailing list.

- Changed local variable type from int to size_t

  This eliminates compiler warning/error and resolves


Release LevelDB 1.16
- Make Log::Reader not report a corruption when the last record in a
  log file is truncated.
- Fix issue 224: variable created but not utilized.
- Remove comment that referenced a removed feature.


Release LevelDB 1.15
- switched from mmap based writing to simpler stdio based writing. Has a
  minor impact (0.5 microseconds) on microbenchmarks for asynchronous
  writes. Synchronous writes speed up from 30ms to 10ms on linux/ext4.
  Should be much more reliable on diverse platforms.
- compaction errors now immediately put the database into a read-only
  mode (until it is re-opened). As a downside, a disk going out of
  space and then space being created will require a re-open to recover
  from, whereas previously that would happen automatically. On the
  plus side, many corruption possibilities go away.
- force the DB to enter an error-state so that all future writes fail
  when a synchronous log write succeeds but the sync fails.
- repair now regenerates sstables that exhibit problems
- fix issue 218 - Use native memory barriers on OSX
- fix issue 212 - QNX build is broken
- fix build on iOS with xcode 5
- make tests compile and pass on windows


Release LevelDB 1.14
Fix issues 200, 201

* Fix link to bigtable paper in docs.
* New sstables will have the file extension .ldb. .sst files will
continue to be recognized.
* When building for iOS, use xcrun to execute the compiler. This may
affect issue 177.


LevelDB 1.13
Fix issues 77, 87, 182, 190.

Additionally, fix the bug described in
where a large contiguous keyspace of deleted data was not getting

Also fix a bug where options.max_open_files was not getting clamped


Release leveldb 1.12
Non-functional changes only:
1) Add Kevin Regan to the AUTHORS file
2) Add standard license header to issues/


Release leveldb 1.11
Fixes issues

As well as the issue reported by about
MissingSSTFile unit test failing on windows.


Release leveldb 1.10
Fixes issues
147 - thanks feniksgordonfreeman

* Remove calls to exit(1).
* Fix unused-variable warnings from clang.
* Fix possible overflow error related to num_restart value >= (2^32/4).
* Add leveldbutil to .gitignore.
* Add better log messages when Write is stalled on a compaction.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
