Warning: This program is still alpha and should not be used for mission critical data. Especially the file format may change until the first beta release is available so that data might be lost. The software API however will not change so it is safe to code against the API. Some features in the current alpha version are disabled or not fully implemented, see SOD2 status for details.
For development three different packages are required: A server (available for multiple platforms), the tools package (available for multiple platforms) and a language binding (available for multiple languages). The reference manual is included in the tools package. To FAQ explains how to install SOD2 without root privileges.
For portability reasons the C++ binding is distributed as source code. Therefore it is only available for licensed customers.
