This version is a major features updates and fixes.
Here is the changelog of the 3.6.0 :
2010-05-18 Version 3.6.0 Vincent Rogier email@example.com * Improved Array interface - Arrays of non scalar datatypes (based on handles) previously had to be initialized element by element and could be time consuming - It is now possible to allocate arrays in one step and thus improve performance (especially with Oracle 11g), internal OCILIB stuctures and OCI handles are allocated in one step - Added OCI_DateArrayCreate() - Added OCI_DateArrayFree() - Added OCI_TimestampArrayCreate() - Added OCI_TimestampArrayFree() - Added OCI_IntervalArrayCreate() - Added OCI_IntervalArrayFree() - Added OCI_LobArrayCreate() - Added OCI_LobArrayFree() - Added OCI_FileArrayCreate() - Added OCI_FileArrayFree() - Added OCI_ObjectArrayCreate() - Added OCI_ObjectArrayFree() - Added OCI_RefArrayCreate() - Added OCI_RefArrayFree() - Added OCI_CollArrayCreate() - Added OCI_CollArrayFree() * Added proper support for UTF8 strings - Use OCI_CHARSET_ANSI mode - Set the environment variable NLS_LANG to value that contains the substring 'UTF8' - Depending on the database charset : - UTF8 : UTF8 strings are used for any text based binds or retrieved columns values - Other charsets : UTF8 strings can be used only with national strings (NCHAR/NVARCHAR/NCLOB) * Exented String support - Added OCI_BindSetCharsetForm() to enable the use of national charset on binded strings * Extended LOB API - It is now possible to specify for CLOB/NCLOB buffer lengths in characters and/or bytes for R/W operations - Added OCI_LobRead2() - Added OCI_LobWrite2() - Added OCI_LobAppend2() * Modified native CHARSET modes - OCI_CHARSET_UNICODE replaced by OCI_CHARSET_WIDE - OCI_CHAR_UNICODE replaced by OCI_CHAR_WIDE - OCI_XXX_UNICODE symbols are still supported for backward compatibility * Fixed Multiple loads in Direct path mode - Fixed the API to enable multiple load - Updated direct path demo * Miscellaneous changes - Added OCI_HandleGetSubscription() - Modified OCI_Initialize() : renamed parameter 'home' to 'lib_path' - OCI_GetString() : when column base type is not string based, the implicit conversion uses now now dynamic memory allocation to return full data content instead of truncating to OCI_BUFFER_SIZE limit - Various documentation updates - Modified OCI_LobRead() (and thus OCI_LobRead2()) to set a trailing null character - Replaced few left direct malloc() calls by OCI_MemAlloc() * Miscellaneous fixes - fixed prototype of OCI_ConnPoolGetlGetNoWait() => OCI_ConnPoolGetGetNoWait() - fixed internal raw size retrieving in OCI_ObjectGetRaw() and OCI_ElemSetRaw() - fixed OCI_ObjectSetString() in OCI_CHARSET_MIXED mode that could cause a segfault - fixed internal string conversions in OCI_CHARSET_MIXED mode on Unix systems that could cause a segfault - fixed various problems of RAW and LONG handling in OCI_MIXED_CHARSET mode - fixed OCI_ServerGetOutput() when statements are reprepared - fixed computation of objects members offsets (in the internal object opaque structure) which caused misaligned pointer and lead to segfault depending on the members datatype - fixed OCI_xxxFmt() functions that were badly formatting the ouput sql when more than one DATE parameter was present - fixed OCI_BindArrayOfXXXX() documentation - fixed OCI_BindArraySetSize() when called many times with a new size > initial size - fixed endianness problem on big endian platforms when a string buffer had to be converted - fixed internal lengths used in implicit conversions in OCI_GetString() for some datatypes - Improved long long support detection - fixed national charset attribute detection for NCLOB binds - Fixed memory leak appeared in v3.5.0 when deallocating internal fetched LOBs * Modified developer and support contacts - use the following contact address for any information/question/help about OCILIB : - support and help : firstname.lastname@example.org - contact and information : email@example.com
Have a nice week end !
