+Active Metasploit 5 development will sometimes push aggressive changes.
2
+Integrations with 3rd-party tools, as well as general usage, may change quickly
3
+from day to day. Some of the steps for dealing with major changes will be
4
+documented here. We will continue to maintain the Metasploit 4.x branch until
5
+Metasploit 5.0 is released.

+**2018/01/17 - [internal] module cache reworked to not store metadata in PostgreSQL**
8
+
9
+Metasploit no longer stores module metadata in a PostgreSQL database, instead
10
+storing it in a cache file in your local ~/.msf4 config directory. This has a
11
+number of advantages:
12
+
13
+ * Fast searches whether you have the database enabled or not (no more slow search mode)
14
+ * Faster load time for msfconsole, the cache loads more quickly
15
+ * Private module data is not uploaded to a shared database, no collisions
16
+ * Adding or deleting modules no longer displays file-not-found error messages on start in msfconsole
17
+ * Reduced memory consumption
18
+
19
+Code that reads directly from the Metasploit database for module data will need
20
+to use the new module search API.
