Updated libdbi packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libdbi packages provide implementation of a database-independent abstraction layer in the C language. This framework allows programmers to write one generic set of code that works with multiple databases and multiple simultaneous database connections.
Previously, when processing query results, the last row of a query result was not freed due to an off-by-one logic error. This resulted in a memory leak that could become significant after processing a large number of query results. This update corrects an incorrect test condition in the underlying source code and memory leaks no longer occur in this scenario.
All users of libdbi are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
