Release Notes: The detection of the type of query has been fixed in several driver classes to also consider tabs and line breaks as SQL command separators. The Metabase schema manager class has been fixed to deal correctly with simultaneous table renaming and index dropping. The MySQL schema manager extension class has been fixed to retrieve the correct table index names and also to suppress warnings when creating and dropping databases. The Interbase schema manager class has been fixed to create and drop databases correctly. The Metabase schema XSL stylesheet has been improved to display field lengths and the page background correctly.
Release Notes: Microsoft SQL Server database creation and dropping functions were fixed to use the database connection credentials correctly.
Release Notes: This release had many improvements but the most important are experimental schema reverse engineering support with an utility to help the migration of database specific applications to start using Metabase, connection strings to specify setup options in a single string parameter, a new sub-driver architecture to develop RDBMS specific drivers based on ODBC, dedicated support for MySQL transactional table types INNODB and GEMINI, new drivers for Microsoft Access and SQLite flat file databases, and a split schema management separating manager driver extension classes to make all drivers smaller.
Release Notes: This release adds functions for bulk data fetching that execute queries and retrieve whole result sets in a single call, a function to implement the SQL REPLACE query that works in most of the supported DBMS, and a function to specify a programmer defined error handling function.
Release Notes: The optional (until now undocumented) API has been unveiled, which lets programmers use Metabase making direct calls to driver objects as alternative to the API that just uses global functions, satisfying the programmers that prefer a faster Object Oriented API, and want to type less characters to make driver object function calls.
Release Notes: A Portuguese version of the tutorial document was added and a few minor corrections were made to the English tutorial document.
Release Notes: New support to create, store, and retrieve large object fields (BLOBs) for all supported databases that can handle them, changing the LICENSE to a BSD style license, and some minor bugfixes.
Release Notes: Support for retrieving query result metadata was added. A bug in the rounding of decimal values was fixed. A bug in locating prepared query place holders, which occurred when the query has constant strings with question marks, was fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes syntax errors in the Interbase and MS SQL drivers.
Release Notes: All uses of the strtok function were removed, since they make PHP crash when used from inside session handler functions. The documentation and tutorials were improved. Support for Oracle default table spaces was added. Templates for designing database schemas with the EditPlus editor were added.
