- Update to PMDK 1.7 (jsc#SLE-9886)
  - Introduces new APIs in libpmemobj for managing space used by transactions.
    (see pmemobj_tx_log_append_buffer man page for details)
  - Introduces new APIs in librpmem, splitting rpmem_persist into rpmem_flush
    and rpmem_drain, allowing applications to use the flush + drain model
    already known from libpmem. (libpmemobj does not use this feature yet)
  - Optimizes large libpmemobj transactions by significantly reducing
    the amount of memory modified at the commit phase.
  - Optimizes tracking of libpmemobj reservations.
  - Adds new flags for libpmemobj's pmemobj_tx_xadd_range[_direct] API:
    applications to optimize how memory is tracked by the library.
- To support some of the above changes the libpmemobj on-media layout had
  to be changed, which means that old pools have to be converted using
  pmdk-convert >= 1.7.

- Update to upstream version 1.3 (FATE#322653)
  This release introduces some useful features and optimizations
  in libpmemobj.  Most of them are experimental and controlled by
  the new pmemobj_ctl APIs.  For details, please check the feature
  requests identified by the issue numbers listed next to the items below.

  Other important changes are related to performance tuning and
  stabilization of librpmem library, which is used by libpmemobj to get
  remote access to persistent memory and to provide basic data replication
  over RDMA.  The librpmem is still considered experimental.

  New features:
  - common: add support for concatenated DAX Devices
  - common: add Unicode support on Windows
  - common: add long path support on Windows
  - common: add NVML installer for Windows
  - pmem: make pmem_is_pmem() true for Device DAX only
  - obj: add pmemobj_wcsdup()/pmemobj_tx_wcsdup() APIs
  - obj: export non-inlined pmemobj_direct()
  - obj: add PMEMOBJ_NLANES env variable
  - cpp: introduce the allocator
  - cpp: add wstring version of C++ entry points
  - vmem: add vmem_wcsdup() API entry
  - pool: add pmempool_rm() function (#307)
  - pool: add --force flag for create command (#529)
  - benchmark: add a minimal execution time option
  - benchmark: add thread affinity option
  - benchmark: print 99% and 99.9% percentiles
  - doc: separate Linux/Windows version of web-based man pages

  - obj: cache _pobj_cached_pool in pmemobj_direct()
  - obj: optimize thread utilization of buckets
  - obj: stop grabbing a lock when querying pool ptr
  - rpmem: use multiple endpoints

  Bug fixes:

- Update to upstream version 1.2.1 (FATE#321727)
  This NVML release changes the behavior of pmem_is_pmem() on Linux.
  The pmem_is_pmem() function will now return true only if the entire
  range is mapped directly from Device DAX (/dev/daxX.Y) without an
  intervening file system, and only if the corresponding file mapping
  was created with pmem_map_file().  See libpmem(3) for details.

- Update to upstream version 1.2 (FATE#321727)
+ build-fix.patch
- 0001-libpmemblk-cast-translation-entry-to-uint64_t-when-calculating-data-offset.patch
* Add Device DAX support, providing that "optimized flush" mechanism
  defined in SNIA NVM Programming Model can safely be used, even
  if PMEM-aware file system supporting that model is not available,
  or if the user does not want to use the file system for some reason.
* Add a package for libpmemobj C++ bindings.
  C++ API is no longer considered experimental.
  Web-based documentation for C++ API is available on
* Add "sync" and "transform" commands to pmempool utility.
  The "sync" command allows to recover missing or corrupted part(s)
  of a pool set from a healthy replica, while the "transform" command
  is a convenient way for modifying the structure of an existing
  pool set, i.e. by adding or removing replicas.
* Add experimental support for remote access to persistent memory and
  basic remote data replication over RDMA (librpmem).  Experimental
  support for remote replicas is also provided by libpmemobj library.
  Note: This is one not packaged for SUSE yet.

- Fix 32 Bit overflow in resulting in flying writes (bsc#986657)

Sun Jun 26 22:58:04 UTC 2016 -

- Update to upstream version 1.1 (FATE#319673)
* A new version of libpmemobj pool layout is introduced.
* Internal undo log structure has been modified to improve
  performance of pmemobj transactions.
* Memory pools created with older versions of the libpmemobj
  library must be converted to the new format using "pmempool
  convert" command. See pmempool-convert(1) for details.
* A new "libpmempool" library is available, providing support for
  off-line pool management and diagnostics. Initially, it
  provides only "check" and "repair" operations for log and blk
  memory pools, and for BTT devices.
* pmem: deprecate PCOMMIT
* blk: match BTT Flog initialization with Linux NVDIMM BTT
* pmem: defer pmem_is_pmem() initialization
* cpp: clarify polymorphism in persistent_ptr
* obj: let the "before" flag be any non-zero value
* obj: fix compare array pptr to nullptr
* log/blk: set errno if replica section is specified

- Add libpmempool subpackage
- Add new BuildRequires: pkg-config, glibc-devel

- Version 1.0
    The API of six libraries (libpmem, libpmemblk, libpmemlog,
    libpmemobj, libvmem, libvmmalloc) is complete and stable.
    The on-media layout of persistent memory pools will be maintained
    from this point, and if changed it will be backward compatible.
    Man pages are all complete.
    This release has been validated to "Production quality".

    For the purpose of new features planned for next releases of NVML
    there have been some API modifications made:
            - pmem: pmem_map replaced with pmem_map_file
            - log/blk: 'off_t' substituted with 'long long'
            - obj: type numbers extended to 64-bit
            - obj: new entry points and macros added:
              pmemobj_tx_errno, pmemobj_tx_lock, pmemobj_mutex_timedlock,

    Other key changes since version 0.4 include:
            - common: updated/fixed installation scripts
            - common: eliminated dependency on libuuid
            - pmem: CPU features/ISA detection using CPUID
            - obj: improved error handling
            - obj: atomic allocation fails if constructor returns error
            - obj: multiple performance optimizations
            - obj: object store refactoring
            - obj: additional examples and benchmarks

    This release also introduces a prototype implementation
    of C++ bindings for libpmemobj.  Note that C++ API is still
    experimental and should not be used in production environments.

- Update to upstream version 0.4
  This NVML version primarily focuses on improving code quality
  and reliability.  In addition to a couple of bug fixes,
  the changes include:
          - benchmarks for libpmemobj, libpmemblk and libvmem
          - additional pmemobj tests and examples
          - pool mapping address randomization
          - added pmempool "rm" command
          - eliminated libpmem dependency on libpthread
          - enabled extra warnings
          - minor performance improvements
  Man pages are all complete.
  This release is considered "Beta quality" by the team, having
  been thoroughly validated, including significant performance analysis.
  The pmempool command does not yet support "check" and "repair"
  operations for pmemobj type pools.

Mon Oct 19 09:51:06 UTC 2015 -

- Update to upstream version 0.3
  NVML is now feature complete, adding support for:
    - pool sets
    - pmemobj local replication (active/passive)
    - experimental valgrind support
    - pmempool support for all pool types
  Man pages are all complete.
  This release is considered "Alpha quality" by the team, having
  gone through significant validation but only some performance
  analysis at this point.
