- Updated to db-4.8.30. Important changes since 4.7:
  * Improved scalability and throughput when using BTree databases
    especially when running with multiple threads that equal or
    exceed the number of available CPUs.
  * Berkeley DB has added database partitioning. BTree or Hash
    databases may now be partitioned across multiple directories.
    Partitioned databases can be used to increase concurrency and to
    improve performance by spreading access across disk subsystems.
  * Berkeley DB now supports bulk insertion and deletion of data.
    Similar to the bulk get interface, the bulk put and bulk delete
    allow the developer to populate a buffer of key-value pairs and
    then pass it to the BDB library with a single API call.
  * Berkeley DB now supports compression when using BTree.
  * Berkeley DB introduces a new utility named db_sql which replaces
    db_codegen. Similar to db_codegen, db_sql accepts an input file
    with DDL statements and generates a Berkeley DB application
    using the C API that creates and performs CRUD operations on
    the defined tables. The developer can then use that code as a
    basis for further application development.
  * The Replication Manager now supports shared access to the Master
    database environment from multiple processes. In earlier
    versions, multiple process support on the Master required use
    of the Base Replication API.
  * Foreign Key Support has been added to Berkeley DB.
  * for a more detailed changelog see the changelog_4_8.html file
    in db-doc package.
- Removed db-utils-doc subpackage the utils documentation is now
  integrated with the API documentation.
