we have released Connector/C++ 1.0.5 GA at the MySQL Conference about
two weeks ago. The 1.0 GA offers virutally everything we needed for
Connector/OpenOffice.org and MySQL Workbench.
Our own testing and the absence of bug reports on http://bugs.mysql.com
makes me believe that the quality of the 1.0 is good. 1.0 seems to be a
good starting point. It does not have any super-fancy features. But it
certainly is a good basis for the future.
We follow the JDBC-API widely, we have Prepared Statements, we have
buffered and unbuffered result sets, we have an interface to fetch
BLOB/LOB data and all the basic SQL operations - including calling
stored functions - work fine. I know that we need to demo some of the
features, but they are available already. For 1.0.6 (before July) we
will check the performance and write some performance regression tests.
However, where shall we go from here: what do you want to see in 1.1,
1.5, 2.0 or 3.0? What do you need?
We have a first idea for 1.1, but I'd like to hear from you before we
make any suggestions.
