                  Database Interface for Python

                       Version 0.9.2 (beta)

  Our new client-server product for connecting Python applications
         to relational databases - from all major platforms

This announcement is also available on our web-site for online reading:



The mxODBC Connect Database Interface for Python allows users to
easily connect Python applications to all major databases on the
market today in a highly portable and convenient way.

Unlike our mxODBC Python extension, mxODBC Connect is designed
as client-server application, so you no longer need to find production
quality ODBC drivers for all the platforms you target with your Python

Instead you use an easy to install Python client library which
connects directly to the mxODBC Connect database server over the

This makes mxODBC Connect the ideal basis for writing cross-platform
database programs and utilities in Python, especially if you run
applications that need to communicate with databases such as MS
SQL Server, Oracle or DB2 that run on Windows or Linux machines.

By removing the need to install and configure ODBC drivers on the
client side, mxODBC Connect greatly simplifies setup and
configuration of database driven client applications, while at
the same time making the network communication between client and
database server more efficient and more secure.
