This release fixes various obscure (though potentially crippling) bugs and shortcomings, and issues with specific compilers.
The most notable fix is, on Windows, that you can now successfully specify an installation path when using the installer, and it will actually work. In previous releases, you could specify a path, and everything would be installed there, but it was largely ignored by the applications, which looked for files in and tried to write files to the default path.
Full ChangeLog follows...
- fixed true->false transposition in sqlrservercontroller::interceptQuery that could lead to a reLogIn loop
- disabled -Werror for gcc < 2.7
- applied George Carrette's patch to fix PDO connectstring options
- migrated directory/file paths info into sqlrpaths class
- removed undocumented and not-so-relevent-these-days MAX_CONNECTIONS/overridemaxconnections failsafe in sqlr-start
- fixed java header detection for javac located in /usr/bin
- updated java api to support non-null-tolerant implementations of environment::NewStringUTF()
- the perl api builds correctly on OSR5 again
- the postgresql sslmode is omitted entirely from the connect string now, if it's disabled, to prevent problems with older versions of postgresql that don't support the parameter at all
- mono 2.8 or greater is required now
- added a datedelimiters attribute to the instance tag in sqlrelay.conf to limit what date delimiters are used when translating dates
- re-added mssqlserver detection, which had been accidentally removed
- fixed statically-linked build
- fixed mysql lob field bug that could cause a crash
