This is a major release in terms of features. Please see the release notes of this release for more details.
The first proclib GNU/Linux package is released for download. This package has the same functionality as the current windows version.
Here is a list of forthcoming enhancements and new features which will be added to the proclib library.
1. Facility to do bulk database operations.
2. To be able to fetch and store data in 'C' compatible datatype. Currently all data was fetched in string format from the database, but going forward data will be fetched in most closely compatible 'C' datatype and passed on to client application.
3. Able to support more complex database objects and operations.
4. To make the library routines more streamlined and powerful.
Hopefully the next package release will be in stable branch and not in the development branch as most of the code has been stablized. Also the development code branch in CVS will be merged into main branch before launch of the package. I am also working on a Windows installer for the package which will streamline the installation process.
The package v0.4 has been released in the development branch. Includes a few important enhancements.
The package release v0.2 does not contain any program modifications, only Microsoft redist runtime files have been added to the package.
The first package of proclib has been released. The package contains a Windows command line based application program which uses proclib to query Oracle database.
