Version 1.14.90
+FIXME: BUMP VI_MAJOR
+
* Implement database consistency checks
* Improved error checking
* Removed gdbm-1.8.3 compatibility layer
+* Commands can be given to gdbmtool in the command line
+
+The syntax is:
+
+ gdbmtool DBNAME COMMAND [ARGS...]
+
+Multiple commands are separated by semicolon (take care to escape it),
+e.g.:
+
+ gdbmtool t.db count\; avail
+
+* Fixed data conversion bugs in storing structured keys or content
+
+* New member in the gdbm_recovery structure: duplicate_keys.
+
+Upon return from gdbm_recover, this member holds the number of keys
+that were not recovered, because the same key has already been stored
+in the database. The actual number of stored keys is thus
+recovered_keys - duplicate_keys.
+
+* New error codes.
+
+ GDBM_BAD_BUCKET "Malformed bucket header"
+ GDBM_BAD_HEADER "Malformed database file header"
+ GDBM_BAD_AVAIL "Malformed avail_block"
+ GDBM_BAD_HASH_TABLE "Malformed hash table"
+
Version 1.14.1 - 2018-01-03
* Increment soname current version number.
