Enhancements
  • The drivers using base version B0649 and later have been enhanced to include timestamp in the internal packet logs by default. If you want to disable the timestamp logging in packet logs, set PacketLoggingOptions=1. The internal packet logging is not enabled by default. To enable it, set EnablePacketLogging=1.*
  • The Connect64 (64-bit) version of the Text driver is now generally available. This new driver provides 64-bit support for the features and functionality offered by the earlier DataDirect Connect (32-bit) version of the driver. In addition, for the Connect64 driver, support for HP-UX IPF has been added.
    Note: The Connect64 Text driver uses a driver-specific installer, instead of the Connect Series installer. Both installers are available on the Progress website.
  • The Driver Manager for UNIX/Linux has been enhanced to support setting the Unicode encoding type for applications on a per connection basis. By passing a value for the SQL_ATTR_APP_UNICODE_TYPE attribute using SQLSetConnectAttr, your application can specify the encoding at connection. This allows your application to pass both UTF-8 and UTF-16 encoded strings with a single environment handle.
    The valid values for the SQL_ATTR_APP_UNICODE_TYPE attribute are SQL_DD_CP_UTF8 and SQL_DD_CP_UTF16. The default value is SQL_DD_CP_UTF8.
    This enhancement is available in build 07.16.0398 of the driver manager.
