iODBC Driver Manager and SDK

iODBC is a cross-platform Driver Manager that comforms to the Microsoft ODBC 2.x & 3.x and X/Open SQL CLI data access specs. It enables the development of database-centric solutions that are both database and platform independent. This is a great SDK for porting WIN32-based ODBC applications to Linux and other OS platforms.

A long mutex lock on connect, problems with SQLBrowseConnect, missing functions in the export list, a core dump when checking for driver ODBC version, an allocation error in SQLDescribeCol, the RPM specification for Red Hat, the use of SQLFetchScroll in iodbctest, and porting problems on FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and OSF were fixed.

            Release Notes: This version adds two major new features. With File DSNs, you can store connection parameters in separate files per DSN (under /etc/ODBCDataSources/ by default). Connection-Pooling allows you to keep a pool of ODBC connections active for quicker (re)connection. Additionally there are several small bugfixes, including SQLSetStmtAttr(), a check for /Library/ODBC/ and other build issues on Mac OS X, and use of localtime_r in tracing where available.
