Subject Re: heads up on on-disk data format changes in trunk
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2009 00:13:01 GMT
Re the index bugs: this is referring to column indexes, not key
indexes.  (The former are kept in the SSTable; the latter are in a
separate file.  Don't delete your -Index.db files. :)

And a correction: 341 is the only one that the compaction process will
fix, not 332 as well.
