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.

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


We are pleased to announce a new version 2.0.1 of our mxODBC Zope DA

With the patch level 2.0.1 release we have backported the mxODBC Zope DA
product to also run on Zope 2.10, 2.11 as well as Python 2.4. This was
done to meet popular demand, since Plone 3 still uses these Zope and
Python versions.

The mxODBC Zope DA is now fully compatible with all recent Plone
versions, including the upcoming Plone 4.0 release. Please see the
mxODBC Zope DA documentation for details on how to install the
product for use in Plone.

Compared to the previous 1.0 version of the mxODBC Zope DA, the 2.0
version includes 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.

 * Python 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6 support.

 * Zope 2.10, 2.11 and 2.12 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.

 * Fully eggified to simplify easy_install and zc.buildout based
