      Release Notes: This release removes UNICODE mode and replaces it with support for Unicode characters anywhere a string can be passed. This eliminates the problems that were discovered with UNICODE mode and the restrictions that were present in Python 2.x where Unicode could not be used in connect strings or SQL statements, for example. A few other minor enhancements were implemented as well.
