Since there have been no trouble reports for some time I have decided to
shift PyBSDDB 3.0 out of beta and have made a final release.  You can get it


Binaries are provided for win32 and Linux (RPMs).  The source distribution
should build using distutils anywhere else that Sleepycat DB is supported.

Berkeley DB is a programmatic toolkit that provides high-performance
built-in database support for desktop and server applications. The Berkeley
DB access methods include B+tree, Extended Linear Hashing, Fixed and
Variable-length records, and Queues. Berkeley DB provides full transactional
support, database recovery, online backups, multi-threaded and multi-process
access, etc.
The Python wrappers allow you to store Python string objects of any length,
keyed either by strings or integers depending on the database access method.
With the use of another module in the package standard shelve-like
functionality is provided allowing you to store any picklable Python object!

Additional details, including online docs, are available here:
