basex (7.9-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
VERSION 7.9 (June 27, 2014) --------------------------------------------
- Unit testing has been improved a lot. All test functions will now be
evaluated separately; this way, updates can be performed within test.
- with the new TEST command, all test modules in a specified directory
can be evaluated.
- tests can be invoked from within the GUI editor and project view.
- on command-line, the -t flag can be used for the same purpose.
- Custom HTTP methods can be defined via %rest:method
- Error handling has been improved and aligned with try/catch
- Database Module: parsing options for db:create/db:add
- The "run" operation allows execution of server-side command scripts
* Closes: #754958 FTBFS with Java 8: reference to Base64 is ambiguous
