Release Notes: DBD::Sybase is now officially supported and the getData... methods (getDataArray, getDataArrayHeader, getDataHash, getDataHashHeader) all know how to properly handle the possible multiple result sets that Sybase can return. getID() was added for returning the ID of the last inserted row.
Release Notes: This release adds a revamped error handling infrastructure modeled after the error handling in the Portal::Base code developed in the PCXPortal project.
Release Notes: The major change is the addition of the readHTML() method, which returns an HTML snippet containing the output of the specified SQL select statement. The generated HTML is highly customizable via CSS. The minor changes are the addition of boolean support functions to convert from 1/0 to true/false.
Release Notes: This release fixes some Debian packaging dependacy issues where it was suggesting the C versions of libdbd and libdbi, not the Perl versions. The read, readXML, write, and setError methods were updated to optionally accept a single argument and treat it as the major argument instead of requiring that every argument be passed by name. For read, readXML, and write, this argument is SQL. See the man page for more details.
Release Notes: The error code handler in the XML modules that was only returning the first error reported (and not all errors) has been fixed.
