* About Python (http://www.python.org/):
Python is an object-oriented Open Source programming language which
runs on all modern platforms. By integrating ease-of-use, clarity in
coding, enterprise application connectivity and rapid application
design, Python establishes an ideal programming platform for
today's IT challenges.
* About eGenix (http://www.egenix.com/):
eGenix is a software project, consulting and product company focusing

mxODBC 3.0.3 is a patch-level release and includes the following updates:
* Python 2.3 - 2.6 support:
mxODBC 3.0 is available for Python 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6. We ship
binaries for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, AIX, Solaris, and offer
custom porting services for most other platforms.
* Enhanced support for using cursors as iterators:
mxODBC cursor objects can now be used as iterators to iterate over
result sets. While this was already possible in previous versions
using wrappers, we have now added direct iterator support to the
cursor objects themselves.
* Updated work-arounds for various ODBC drivers:
eGenix always aims to make using mxODBC as easy and robust as
possible. For this reason, we regularly add or update work-arounds
for problems found in recent ODBC driver versions.
This release includes new work-arounds for the MySQL ODBC driver
running on 64-bit Linux, the SQL Server 200 ODBC driver and the
FileMaker ODBC driver.
