This release is a 1.5 maintenance release which has been primarily aimed at improving the following key areas:
- Improved connectivity to support larger systems. Read/Write splitting with DirectReads has been improved for environments with a lot of database users. Connection pooling is now turned off by default for better memory usage.
- More robust cluster management. Improved policy for maintenance and automatic modes.
- Better replication. Improved binary data handling.
- Enhanced PostgreSQL support. New Tungsten for PostgreSQL version brings major improvements in terms of stability and reliability. We highly recommend customers running Tungsten 1.3.4 to upgrade.
