Subject:RELEASE: v2.1.0
View as plain text  
It's finally here, version 2.1:

     o Converted automake and makemake files to their equivalents in
       Bakefile format.

     o Added the Transaction class, which makes it easy to use
       transaction sets in MySQL++.

     o Added xaction example to test new Transaction class.

     o Resetdb example now creates its example table using the
       InnoDB storage engine, in order to test the new transaction
       support.  Resetdb also declares the table as using UTF-8
       text; this doesn't change anything, but it does correctly
       document what we're doing.

     o Added sql_types.h header, containing C++ typedefs
       corresponding to each MySQL column type.  Using those new
       types in the type_info module, and in the SSQLS examples.

     o Replaced the way we were handling the template query
       version of Query member functions, to allow an arbitrary
       number of template query parameters.  By default, we
       now support 25 parameters, up from the old limit of 12.
       It's now possible to change just one number, run a script,
       and have a new limit.

     o Connection class does a better job of returning error
       messages if you call certain member functions that depend
       on a connection to the server before the connection is

     o Updated libmysqlclient.def for newer versions of MySQL.  (Fixes
       build errors having to do with mysql_more_results() and

     o Replaced final use of strcpy() with strncpy().

     o now runs without complaint in strict mode, with
       warnings turned on.  Thanks for this patch go to "Waba".

     o Fixed a bug in where incorrect code would be
       generated for some SSQLS set() methods.  Thanks for this
       patch go to "Waba".

     o SSQLS structures now support long and unsigned long fields.
       Thanks for this patch go to "Waba".

     o It's now possible to put SSQLS definitions in a header
       file used by multiple modules in a program without
       getting multiple static member definition errors.  See the
       documentation for details.  Thanks for this patch go to
       Viktor Stark.

     o Moved the definition of the 'stock' SSQLS out of the
       custom*.cpp example files and into a new stock.h file.
       Also, #including that file in the util module to test out
       the new SSQLS multiple static definition fix.

     o Using all of the digits of precision guaranteed by the
       IEEE 754 spec when stringizing floating point numbers
       to build queries.  Previously, we would use the platform
       default, which can be as few as 6 digits.

     o Removed lib/compare.h.  Not used within the library, never
       documented, and nobody seems to want to defend it.
