  • Interchange 5.7.3 development release

    Posted on November 5, 2009 by Jon Jensen

    We’re pleased to announce the release of Interchange 5.7.3, the latest development version of Interchange.

    It includes all known bug and security fixes, as well as a few minor new features (see the WHATSNEW file for details). We recommend new development be done with this version, but only experienced Interchange users should deploy it on production servers.

    This is the first release available in the new XZ compression format, which aims to be the successor to bzip2 (and the short-lived lzma format). Ubuntu 9.10 and Fedora 12 support it, including in GNU tar with the -J option. It offers a smaller download, but is completely optional as far as Interchange is concerned.

    Packages are available for download now.
