Released OrientDB 1.7.8 + new non-blocking backup

London, August 13th 2014

Many issues fixed. This is a hotfix (, so you can just replace the jars to upgrade. No export/import is needed.


We’ve also introduced a new script under “bin” directory. This executes a backup by invoking the console. But the most interesting part is the option “lvm“. If you’re running on Linux and you have LVM installed, you can execute a database backup without locking the database. For more information look at Non-Blocking Backup. If you’re a devops and you’d like to contribute to support other OSs and File Systems, please send us a Pull Request.


Enjoy with Graphs,
