Release Notes: The main change is how heap-allocated memory is handled by default; it is now initialized to zeroes before use. A MDB_NOMEMINIT option has been added to disable this, since it may have a slight performance cost depending on data sizes. Some regressions from 0.9.9 were fixed in mdb_page_split() and mdb_cursor_del(), and some build issues with Windows64 were fixed.
