The eGenix mxODBC Zope Database Adapter allows you to easily connect
your Zope or Plone installation to just about any database backend on
the market today, giving you the reliability of the commercially
supported eGenix product mxODBC and the flexibility of the ODBC
standard as middle-tier architecture.

The mxODBC Zope Database Adapter is highly portable, just like Zope
itself and provides a high performance interface to all your ODBC data
sources, using a single well-supported interface on Windows, Linux,
Mac OS X, FreeBSD and other platforms.

We are pleased to announce a new version 2.0.2 of our mxODBC Zope DA

With the patch level 2.0.2 release we have updated the integrated
mxODBC Python Extension to the latest 3.1.1 release, which
includes a number of important workarounds for these ODBC drivers:

 * Oracle 10gR1 and 10gR2
 * Oracle 11gR1 and 11gR2
 * Teradata 13
 * Netezza

Due to popular demand, we have also added instructions on how to
install mxODBC Zope DA 2.0 with Plone 4.1 and Zope 2.13 - even though
this combination is not officially supported by the mxODBC Zope DA 2.0



Licenses purchased for version 2.0.x of the mxODBC Zope DA will continue
to work with the 2.0.2 patch level release.

Licenses purchased for version 1.0.x of the mxODBC Zope DA will not
work with version 2.0. More information about available licenses
is available on the product page:


Compared to the popular mxODBC Zope DA 1.0, version 2.0 offers
these enhancements:

 * Includes mxODBC 3.1 with updated support for many current ODBC
   drivers, giving you more portability and features for a wider
   range of database backends.

 * Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) support.

 * Plone 3.2, 3.3, 4.0 support. Plone 4.1 works as well.

 * Zope 2.10, 2.11, 2.12 support. Zope 2.13 works as well.

 * Python 2.4 - 2.6 support.

 * Zero maintenance support to automatically reconnect the
   Zope connection after a network or database problem.

 * More flexible Unicode support with options to work with
   pure Unicode, plain strings or mixed setups - even for
   databases that don't support Unicode

 * Automatic and transparent text encoding and decoding

 * More flexible date/time support including options to work
   with Python datetime objects, mxDateTime, strings or tuples

 * New decimal support to have the Zope DA return decimal
   column values using Python's decimal objects.
