Hello friends from Flamerobin,
You know I always try to keep myself informed of your progress and
issues so that I can pick up new needs for IBPP.
Unfortunately march 2005 has been quite badly exceptional for me
(mainly health issues & work overload issues).
You heard quite nothing from me for some weeks and it will still be the
case for 1 or 2 weeks (roughly until around April 20).
Though I'm back, reading news from this list and considering to
complete some old unfinished work in IBPP "soon".
You should expect a new IBPP "stable" beta late this month or at least
early in May (because beginning of May I'll be free from a work-charge
and that should give me 10 hours free a week.
I wanted to tell you that the Blob interface received enhancements some
weeks ago (this is checked in the HEAD of IBPP CVS, though I still do
not recommend you to depend on the HEAD branch for the time being).
You'll find the ability to directly read or write a blob to/from a
std::string through the Statement::Get/Set methods, essentially
short-circuiting completely the need to use a Blob temporary variable
for simple use cases.
This feature at least is already heavily used in our private builds at
TIP Group inside release commercial software. So I expect the beta of
this next IBPP iteration will be very short.
There is also a Row concept, that, I expect, could be used to implement
sort of client-side caching of rows when retrieving a dataset. But more
on this later.
And the IBPP::Exception now inherits from std::exception allowing a
better integration with standard compliants developments. (Look at the
ibpp.h from CVS HEAD if you want to see the structure of this and not
take wrong paths in between).
See you soon here,

I wish you well for your health and work and wait for your return so
we can discuss prepared statement caching. ;-)
