[ANN] - New SqueakDBX release

Mariano Martinez Peck
We are very glad to announce our second beta release of SqueakDBX.

The aim of this project is to build an OpenDBX
(http://www.linuxnetworks.de/doc/index.php/OpenDBX/) plugin which will
allow users to perform relational database operations (DDL, DML and
SQL) through a truly open source library.

The features for this release are:

Bugs fixed:

- Bug in odbx_query(), odbx_result() and odbx_result_finish() execution order.
- Timeout in DBXPlatform #nextResultSet: was wrong mapped with FFI.
Now, it is nil.
- Some bugs in OpenDBXWin32 with apiCalls.

New Features:

-Support for SQLite in Linux
-Support for MSSQL in linux and windows (with MinGW)
-Support for PostgreSQL in Windows (with MinGW).
-Better error handling. See http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6076
-New non-blocking plugin to replace FFI (just a proof of concept, but
running). See OpenDBX-Plugin package in Monticello.
-New SqueakDBX tutorial: how to compile openDBX in linux and windwos,
common problems and solutions. You can download it from:
However this pdf will be converted into "wiki format" and put there.
-Configurable Log. See http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6099
-Refactorized and updated wiki: http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6052

- We will be adding benchmarks on different backends and OS soon in
the wiki: http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6063.
- You must use openDBX 1.3.10 version.

- Targets and Features: http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6106

Again, help wanted. We are really convinced about open source
projects. A software project is better when people share opinions,
work, advice, comments, etc.
We would really appreciate if you:

-Give us opinions, comments, ideas, new features, complaints and so on.
-tell us if you find a bug.
-tell us if you test SqueakDBX with other RDMBS or OS different from
the ones we tested. Just to know if it works or not :)

Full documentation, installation and getting started instructions can
be found at wiki page: http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6052

Packages can be installed from Universe (3.10) or  SqueakMap. Current
version is 0.8
Sources can be download from SqueakSource
http://www.squeaksource.com/SqueakDBX (it requires FFI installed)
