Web Site Facelifts

The website and project sites for SQL Relay, Rudiments and Stencil have all been updated. There's still plenty of work to do on each, but it's a start.

Stencil 2.0.5 is out

There are very few changes in this release. Direct calls to posix functions have been replaced with calls to rudiments methods. Apache detection has been improved as well.

SQL Relay 0.43 is out

This is mainly a compatibility release.

In 0.42, some languages or databases weren't detected properly on some platforms or needed tweaks to build against. This release should resolve most or all of those issues.

It's also now possible to build rudiments, the client library and command line apps under mingw32 and run them on Windows without Cygwin.

You can also now set the character set in the sqlrelay.conf file for all databases that support it.

Rudiments 0.43 is out

In this release, many more posix functions and win32 API methods have been wrapped. The serialportprofile class has been refactored quite a bit too. Many classes that were excluded entirely when compiling for win32 are now compiled but many of the methods return failure and set ENOSYS instead of just not being built at all.

It works well enough under windows that the SQL Relay command line clients and Stencil CGI's can be used without Cygwin now.

SQL Relay 0.42 is out

SQL Relay 0.42 is out (finally). This is mainly a bug-fix, stability and compatibility release.

Highlights include:
* Java api should work on 64-bit machines now
* Updated configure script to detect modern versions of db's and languages
* Oracle CLOB fixes
* Oracle cursor bind fixes
* A fix for the bug that caused address="" in the config file to prevent the listener from starting.
* The maxsessioncount parameter defaults to 0 (disabled) now.
* Many, many fixes for obscure bugs, race conditions, memory leaks and other stability-related issues

Thanks to everyone who contacted me about issues or submitted patches that went into this release. There were quite a few. Big thanks go out to Renat Sabitov for submitting a dozen or more patches and doing lots of testing
