Released OrientDB 2.0-rc1!

London, December 17, 2014

Orient Technologies has released OrientDB 2.0-rc1 as the first Release Candidate before the Final 2.0. We implemented some enhancement requests, but more importantly, we resolved many issues reported by users in version 2.0-M3: 87 issues in total.

Please help us with testing OrientDB 2.0-rc1 so that we can release a stable OrientDB 2.0 in about 1-2 weeks.

- Core: Avoid forced rebuilding of indexes if working in Transactional mode
- Javascript: Invocation of JS functions is now 10x faster
- Network: Added support for stateless requests using a Token
- Graph API: Disabled light-weight edges by default
- Bug resolution: 87 total issues from 2.0-M3.


Take a look at the Full list of issues.


Can I use OrientDB v2.0-rc1 in production?

No. This is not the final 2.0 version. This release is the first 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-rc1 in development and test only. If you plan to go in production in less than one month, we suggest staying with OrientDB 1.7.x. Otherwise, go ahead and use OrientDB 2.0-rc1.


Is 2.0-rc1 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.
