[ANNOUNCEMENT] New Package: db-4.3.28-1

This is the initial release of The Sleepycat Berkeley DataBase v4.3

Canonical homepage:

The package consist of three packages:

1. `db' contains the documentation.
2. `libdb4.3' contains the runtime libraries.
3. `libdb4.2-devel' contains import libraries and headers as
   well as the utility executables (db_dump, db_load, ...).

Different versions of DB may be installed at the same time using
setup.exe, however the symlinks needed to link against libdb will be
removed by the postinstall script and the last installed libdb-devel
package will be the one found by the linker when using -ldb on the
linker command line.


   Requires log file format upgrade.

   The on-disk log file format changed in the Berkeley DB 4.3 release.
   For further information on upgrading Berkeley DB installations, see
