The eGenix mxODBC Zope DA allows you to easily connect your Zope or
Plone CMS 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.

This makes it ideal for deployment in ZEO Clusters and Zope hosting
environments where stability and high performance are a top priority,
establishing an excellent basis and scalable solution for your Plone

The 2.2.3 release of our mxODBC Zope/Plone Database Adapter product is
a patch level release of the popular ODBC database interface for Plone
and Zope. It includes these enhancements and fixes:

Feature Updates

 * We have integrated a new option to force serialized connects on a
   per Zope connection object basis. This can be used to work around
   bugs in ODBC drivers which are not fully thread-safe in the connect
   phase. The option is disabled per default.

Driver Compatibility Enhancements

 * ODBC driver compatibility updated. Upgraded to the latest mxODBC
   3.3.5 release, adding compatibility enhancements for MS SQL
   Server. See the mxODBC 3.3.5 release announcements for full

Installation Enhancements

 * Added pip install compatibility to mxODBC Zope DA by creating
   prebuilt archives and uploading a web installer to PyPI. This can
   be useful if you are installing Zope or Plone using a
   requirements.txt type approach, e.g. using

   pip install ThreadLock Products.ZSQLMethods egenix-mxodbc-zopeda

 * Enabled creating wheels from the prebuilt archives, which helps
   when running pip with the wheels package installed. pip then tries
   to build wheels during installation and caches them for future

The complete list of changes is available on the mxODBC Zope DA
changelog page.
