The C API for the Berkeley DB Transaction subsystem was reworked in the 4.0 release as follows:
|Historic functional interface||Berkeley DB 4.X method|
Applications calling any of these functions should update their calls to use the enclosing DB_ENV or DB_TXN handle's method (easily done as the first argument to the existing call is the correct handle to use).
As a special case, since applications might potentially have many calls to the txn_abort, txn_begin and txn_commit functions, those interfaces continue to work unchanged in the Berkeley DB 4.0 release.
In addition, the DB_ENV->txn_stat call has been changed in the 4.0 release to take a flags argument. To leave their historic behavior unchanged, applications should add a final argument of 0 to any calls made to DB_ENV->txn_stat.
