INTRODUCTION

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.

eGenix Threadlock Distribution now also with FreeBSD and Mac OS X egg files

Dear Users,

a while ago, we released binary packages for the ThreadLock package
dependency of mxODBC Zope DA:

http://www.egenix.com/company/news/eGenix-ThreadLock-Distribution-2.13.0.1.html

We have now added egg files for FreeBSD and Mac OS X as well:

 * for UCS2 Python versions:
   https://downloads.egenix.com/python/index/ucs2/

 * for UCS4 Python versions:
   https://downloads.egenix.com/python/index/ucs4/

Please note that zc.buildout will most likely not automatically
find these egg files on FreeBSD and Mac OS X. The reason is that
setuptools doesn't really support these platforms too well and
uses file names which greatly depend on the platform and used
compilers.

To work around this, you need to copy the package egg files to a
local directory, rename them to what setuptools uses on
your FreeBSD/Mac OS X platform as egg file name and then point
zc.buildout at your local directory.

We are checking whether we can use our web installer to work
around this manual step.

Thanks,

mxODBC with unixODBC on Ubuntu

Dear Users,

we just got a support request from a user who has trouble installing
mxODBC on Ubuntu. The answer may be interesting for other users as
well, so I'm posting it here:

Recent Ubuntu versions are shipping unixODBC 2.3.1, but have not
implemented the change in the library name that was done upstream.

As a result, you get a linker error when importing mxODBC on Ubuntu
mentioning a missing libodbc.so.2 shared object file when trying
to load the mxODBC extension.

For the unixODBC change, see the 2.3.1 release notes on:

 * http://www.unixodbc.org/

 """
 Major change is to change the library version number from 1 to 2 to
 signal the SQLLEN change for 64 land. Should have been done for 2.3.0,
 but better late than never. So if after installing you have apps that
 can't find libodbc.so, its likely they are linked to libodbc.so.1,
 so just create a symlink from libodbc.so.2
 """

Note that the actual change to SQLLEN was already implemented in
version 2.2.13.

The situation for recent Ubuntu versions is as follows:

Patch to fix crashes with python debug

Hi,

  I have a patch proposal to fix problems in mx.DateTime that causes crashes in the debug version of Python (I'm testing on Python 2.7). Specifically, the problem happens when there is an error raised from one of the "constructors".  Where can I send it?  I didn't find any official repository or issue tracking system.  Is this list a good place?


  Thanks.
