I am pleased to announce a new release of InformixDB, the DB-API 2.0 module
for connecting to IBM Informix database engines.

Changes since version 2.2:

- Allow parameter list for executemany() to be arbitrary iterable objects.
- .prepare() method and .command attribute for explicitly prepared statements
- Python 2.5 compatibility
- Bug fixes:
  * Rare crashes caused by missing error check in DESCRIBE step.
  * Inconsistent UDT input binding caused SQLCODE -1820 in bulk insert
    (executemany) if UDT contents went back and forth across 32K size
    boundary or between null and non-null.
  * EXECUTE PROCEDURE erroneously attempted to open a results cursor for
    procedures that don't return results.
  * Date columns were read incorrectly on 64 bit platforms due to mixup
    of int4 versus long.
