Second Release Candidate for OrientDB 2.0: another step toward the final v2.0

London, January 13, 2015

A few hours ago, Orient Technologies released OrientDB 2.0-rc2 as the second Release Candidate before the Final 2.0. This version contains no enhancements, but rather 86 issues resolved from 2.0-rc1, which was released 3 weeks ago.

Please help us with testing OrientDB 2.0-rc2 so that we can release a stable OrientDB 2.0 in about 1 week.

Take a look at the full list of resolved issues.


Can I use OrientDB v2.0-rc2 in production?

No. This is not the final 2.0 version. This release is the second Release Candidate (RC stands for Release Candidate) of 2.0 on the path to the final version in the next days. We suggest using OrientDB v2.0-rc2 in development and test only. If you plan to go in production in less than a couple of weeks, we suggest staying with OrientDB 1.7.x. Otherwise, go ahead and use OrientDB 2.0-rc2.


Is 2.0-rc2 compatible with previous versions of OrientDB?

You can open any database created with past versions of OrientDB. In order to use the new binary serialization, you are required to export and re-import the database. For more information, take a look at Migrate from 1.7.x.
