Release 1.1.1 of the Shore software represents a bug-fix and maintenance release relative to the previous release. The release is targeted for sites that will use Shore as a system for writing applications using the Shore Data-definition Language and for those who want to write their own servers using the Shore Storage Manager. This document describes the release and provides pointers to other documents explaining how to install and use the software.

The Version 1.1.1 release of Shore is supported for Solaris 2.5 on SPARCstations and Intel X86 (Pentium) workstations and Linux. Shore has been ported to other platforms, but there are no supported ports at this time. We hope to make available, on an "as is" basis, ports contributed by the user community.
You will need a current version of GNU C/C++ compiler gcc (with its include files) and the GNU make utility. We do not support other compilers or versions of make . The current release builds successfully with versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 of the compiler. The pre-compiled (binary) release was built with gcc 184.108.40.206 and libg++ 2.7.2. As newer versions of the compiler are released, we will update the Shore software.
Complete details about required software and hardware are available in the Requirements section of the Installation manual.

The binary release was built with the latest GNU compilers: gcc (and g++) version 220.127.116.11 and libg++ 2.7.2.
