I would like to announce version 0.5 of PyODB a Python unixODBC API binding.

This release contains improvements to the mapping between the SQL
and Python datatypes and a re-write of the data retrieval code.
Also some changes to the reference counting.

PyODB is a Python module and provides a simplified set of bindings
to unixODBC (http://www.unixodbc.org) allowing fast and easy development
of open database applications.

The module supports multiple data source connections with the following
connection methods;  execute(), fetch(), disconnect(), begin(), commit()
and rollback().

The software has been developed on a Linux environment using Python 2.x
and SWIG (http://www.swig.org). The module has been tested on Linux and
Solaris platforms using databases MySQL, Informix and PostgreSQL but
in theory should work on any platform supporting unixODBC and an ODBC
database driver.
