    Full release of the 1.53 development series
    One version skipped because of indexing problems.
  1.53_2 2016-02-03
    Add new FAQs
  1.53_1 2015-10-16
    Strictly speaking this is a bug fix to DBI and not DBD::ODBC but DBI
    now supports 64 bit row counts where an IV in perl is 64 bits. However, it
    necessitated changes to DBD::ODBC to pick up the fix. odbc_rows (my workaround
    since 2012) is still supported but should no longer be required so long as you
    use this DBD::ODBC and DBI 1.633_92 or above.
    Removed dbd_st_rows and now setting DBIc_ROW_COUNT.
    Add tables and table_info section to deviations from the DBI spec.
    Change column name in t/rt_101579.t as "method" is a reserved word
    in. Teradata Thanks to Zhenyi Zhou.
    Remove duplicate dynamic_config from META.yml.

  1.52 2015-04-15
    Changes to the test suite to make it run better with Postgres thanks
    to Greg Sabino Mullane.
  1.51_4 2015-01-18
    Numerous errors in the test suite (with SQLite ODBC driver) mostly down to not
    creating the test table first.
    Try and make the test suite run ok for SQLite ODBC driver so I can use it
    in travis-ci.
  1.51_3 2015-01-17
    RT101579 - using bound input parameters for numeric columns (e.g.,
    SQL_NUMERIC) only works the first time and will quite likey fail
    with "string data, right truncation" on the second and subsequent
    calls to execute. Thanks to Laura Cox for finding.
  1.51_2 2014-11-19
    The table_info method (ANSI version only) was incorrectly passing
    the table name for the type argument. I think this bug was
    introduced last year.
  1.51_1 2014-11-14
    RT100186 - handle VARBINARY(MAX) parameters with SQL Server native
    client. Identify "libmsodbcsql*" as the MS ODBC Driver for Linux as
    there are some specific workarounds for MS Native Client ODBC driver.
  1.50 2014-07-25
    The 80_odbc_diags.t test could fail if a driver fails a table does
    not exist test in the prepare instead of the execute.
  1.49_4 2014-07-08
    Fixed sql_type_cast.t test which assumed column aliases which stay
    Fixed 87_odbc_lob_read.t test which did not bow out of the test
    properly if the database was not MS SQL Server.
    Revised the query notification example and documentation.
    Added a link to a better Query Notification article.
  1.49_3 2014-05-01
    As warned years ago, this release removes the odbc_old_unicode attribute.
    If you have a good reason to use it speak up now before the next non-development
    Fix rt89255: Fails to create test table for tests using PostgreSQL odbc driver.
    Change test suite to fallback on PRECISION if COLUMN_SIZE is not found.
    Added support for MS SQL Server Query Notification. See the new
    section in the pod.
    Added a currently undocumented (and experimental)
    odbc_describe_param method on a statement handle which takes a
    parameter number as the only argument and returns an array of the
    data type, parameter size, decimal digits and nullable (as per
    Added FAQ on truncated column names with freeTDS.
    I have removed the "experimental" tag for odbc_getdiagfield and odbc_getdiagrec
  1.49_2 2014-04-26
    Change to data_sources in 1.49_1 could lead to a compile error since
    data_sources was not returning a value if an error occurred.
  1.49_1 2014-04-25
    If you had a lot of DSNs on Windows (more than 280 but it depends on
    the length of their names) and called the data_sources method it
    could crash your script. Code internally changed to stop putting the DSNs
    returned on the stack.
    As warned years ago, the private data_sources method has been
    removed - use DBI one instead.
    Added FAQ entry of maximum number of allowed parameters.
* Tue Jul 22 2014
- refreshed perl-DBD-ODBC-1.29-Makefile.diff
  (it failed to apply after some of the previous updates)
* Mon Mar 17 2014
- updated to 1.48
  Manifest has wrong filename for 90_trace_flags.t
  Forgot to remove warning from that this is a development
  release and unicode change when I released 1.47.
* Mon Feb 24 2014
- updated to 1.47, see Changes for more
  Full release of the 1.46 development releases.
  Just some tidying up of dbdimp.c - shouldn't make a difference to anyone.
  Further changes to this change file to make it CPAN::Changes spec.
  NOTE the site does not yet support "unknown" for
  1.46_2 2013-12-17
  When built with unicode support and odbc_old_unicode is not enabled
  columns reported as SQL_LONGVARCHAR were not by default bound as
  SQL_WCHAR and hence were not returned correctly unless the bind was
  Added test 90_trace_flag.t
  1.46_1 2013-11-16
  As warned in release 1.45, the binding of unicode parameters to
  char/varchar columns has changed significantly. If you don't attempt
  to insert unicode into char/varchar columns or if you only inserted
  unicode into nchar/nvarchar columns you should see no difference.
  From this release, unicode data inserted into
  char/varchar/longvarchar columns is bound as SQL_WCHAR and not
  whatever the driver reports the parameter as (which is mostly
  Previously if DBD::ODBC received an error or (SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO)
  from an ODBC API call and then the driver refused to return the
  error state/text DBD::ODBC would issue its own error saying "Unable
  to fetch information about the error" and state IM008. That state
  was wrong and has been changed to HY000.
  Some drivers cannot support catalogs and/or schema names in
  SQLTables.  Recent changes set the schema/catalog name to the empty
  string (good reasons below) which causes "optional feature not
  implemented" from MS Access (which does not support schemas - even
  for a simply ping (which uses SQLTables)). Now we call
  SQLCATALOG_NAME and SQLSCHEMA_USAGE on connect to ascertain support
  which modifies SQLTables call.
* Tue Nov 26 2013
- updated to 1.45, see Changes for (a lot of) details
* Sat Jul 27 2013
- updated to 1.43, see Changes (a lot)
* Fri Dec 02 2011
- update to 1.33
  * Enable multiple active statement support in 70execute_array.t for
    drivers we recognise which support MAS.
  * Change column_info to support Unicode catalog/schema/table/column
  * Use SQLGetTypeInfoW on unicode builds.
  * DBD::ODBC now allows unicode catalog/schema/table parameters to be
    passed to table_info. Of course they will only reliably work with
    a supporting Unicode ODBC driver.
  * Added new odbc_driver_complete attribute allowing the ODBC Driver
    Manager and ODBC Driver to throw dialogues for incomplete
    connection strings or expired passwords etc.
  * remove debugging printf which output "HERE" in some rare cases.
    rt 72534 - thanks John Deighan for spotting this.
  * The test 70execute_array.t could fail due to warning being output
    if the driver does not support Multiple Active Statements.
  * Fix bug in utf16_copy which was not adding a trailing NUL but I'm
    not sure this affected anyone until I changed table_info this
  * I omitted rt_68720.t from the 1.31 distribution which leads
    to a warning as it is mentioned in the MANIFEST.
  * new FAQ entries
  * added note saying you cannot pass unicode schema/table/column
    names to metadata calls like table_info/column_info currently.
  * Changed line endings in and README.unicode to be unix
    line endings and native eol-style in subversion.
  * Minor changes to Makefile.PL to save the opensuse guys patching.
  * Added and examples
  * added more examples
* Sat Aug 27 2011
- fix deps
  * perl(Test::Simple) >= 0.88
  * perl(DBI) >= 1.609
* Fri Jun 24 2011
- update to 1.31
  * An extra argument has been added to the sub associated with
  odbc_err_handler.  The arguments passed to the odbc_err_handler are
  now state (string), error (string), native error code (number) and
  the status returned from the last ODBC API. The status will be
  SQL_ERROR (-1) for errors or SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO (1) for
  informational messages.
  * Added support for StrictlyTyped and DiscardString to the bind_col
  * Added the new odbc_describe_parameters attribute.
  * added -w option to Makefile.PL to add "-Wall" to CCFLAGS and
  - fno-strict-aliasing so I can find warnings.
  * Cope with broken ODBC drivers that describe a parameter as SQL
    type 0.
* Sat Jun 18 2011
- fix requires of examples
- use original tar
* Wed Mar 09 2011
- update to 1.29
  * Fixed missing SQL_MAX_TABLE_NAME_LEN definition from test.
  * Fixed problem with some drivers which batch "insert;select" where
    SQLMoreResults is not required and an extra describe is done.
  * Fixed "select 1" in 02simple.t for Firebird ODBC Driver.
  * disconnect call added to 70execute_array.t was in the wrong place.
  * Added support for DBI's new trace flags ENC, CON, TXN and
  * And many other fixes and enhancements
* Fri Jan 07 2011
- update to 1.27
  Minor fix to head in pod
  rt63550 fix and test code and added pod notes on "do"
  snprintf buffer overflow when GetTypeInfo values are negative
  capture execute error in rt_62033.t
* Wed Dec 01 2010
- switch to perl_requires macro
* Thu Sep 23 2010
- update to 1.25
  * Changed bind_col so it actually pays attention to the TYPE
  attribute as you could not override the bind type of a bound
    column before.
  * Left a sv_undef in
  * Change sprintf to snprintf for safety.
  * Removed some unused fields from the fbh structure which should
  save a little memory for each column in a result-set.
  * Started adding support for DBI's DiscardString and StrictlyTyped
  but not complete yet so don't use them yet.
  * Added experimental odbc_lob_read method - see pod.
  * Moved the binding of columns to the first call to fetch instead of
  after execute is called as it prevents bind_col overrriding the
  type used for binding and I needed it to support odbc_lob_read.
  * Removed support for DBI's blob_read - it was totally flawed and
  did not work at all. May replace in the future.
  * Added support for MS SQL Server XML type (SQL type -152).
