kyla 2.0.1

  • The packed repository deployment backend is now multithreaded. It will overlap reading data, decompressing, and writing data. For network sources, this means that downloads will happen concurrently with everything else, and installations should finish as soon as the data download has finished.
  • On Windows, the sample UI now shows the progress in the task bar.
  • Updated SQLite from 3.16.1 to 3.19.2.

kyla 2.0


This release contains a breaking change of the file format. Kyla 1.0 will fail to open a package created with Kyla 2.0 and vice versa.

  • Changed database format for improved forward compatibility.

  • kyla uses now a feature-based definition instead of the previous file-set centric approach. This changes both the database structure, as well as the repository definition structure.

  • The Python generator has been rewritten.

  • The kui sample UI has been rewritten, and kyla learned how to provide UI related information.

  • Zstd compression is available as an alternative to the default Brotli compression.

  • The KYLA_MAKE_API_VERSION macro has been fixed.

  • The repository builder can print out various statistics now, for instance, the final compression ratio.

  • kyla supports file content encryption.


    The encryption only encrypts the file contents, so file names, sizes, and even the hashes of the content will remain visibile. In particular, the database itself is not encrypted.
