AnyDBM 1.0.0 has been released today.

AnyDBM is a generic DBM-type interface.  It provides a generic
infrastructure for supporting storage of hash-like items with
String-to-String mappings.  It can be used for in-memory or on-disk

Two simple backend drivers are included with this package: one that is
RAM-only, and one that is persistent and disk-backed.  The hdbc-anydbm
package provides another driver, which lets you use simple tables in
any SQL database to provide a DBM-like interface.  MissingPy also
provides a Python driver which lets you use any Python anydbm driver
under Haskell AnyDBM.

AnyDBM was previously a part of the MissingH library.  The code in this
release is unchanged from its state in MissingH, other than the
changes necessary to make it a standalone package.

You can find the AnyDBM homepage, which features a wiki, downloads,
API reference, darcs repository viewer, and bug tracker, at:
