Thanks to significant code contributions by Daniel Smertnig, I am proud
to announce release 2.0 of the Informix implementation of the Python
DB-API, a mere 5 weeks after release 1.5.
Downloads and info at http://informixdb.sourceforge.net/
This release features the following improvements over InformixDB-1.5:
* Full compliance with version 2 of the DB-API specification, including
many useful optional features suggested by the specification.
* Improved documentation: Command line help and HTML manual.
* Improved portability: The module now builds painlessly on Windows, and
a binary installer for Python 2.4 is provided.
Note that this release requires Python 2.2 or better, and it breaks
backwards compatibility with version 1 of the DB-API specification. If
either of these are a problem for you, you may still use InformixDB-1.5,
but I strongly recommend upgrading as I won't develop InformixDB-1.5 any
