We have released ODB 1.4.0. The NEWS file entries for this release are
as follows:

  * New profile, qt, provides persistence support for the Qt framework. This
    version covers the most commonly used basic types, date-time types, smart
    pointers, and containers. For example, now you can write:

    #pragma db object
    class Employee

      QString first_name_;
      QString last_name_;

      QDate born_;

      QSet<QString> emails_;
      QByteArray publicKey_;

      QSharedPointer<Employer> employer_;

    The qt profile implementation is provided by the libodb-qt library. For
    more information refer to Chapter 13, "Profiles Introduction" and Chapter
    15, "Qt Profile" in the ODB manual as well as the 'qt' example in the
    odb-examples package.

  * Support for non-polymorphic object inheritance, including the new abstract
    pragma. For more information refer to Chapter 8, "Inheritance" in the ODB
    manual as well as the 'inheritance' example in the odb-examples package.

  * Automatic mapping of C++ enumerations to suitable database types. In
    database systems that support enumeration types (such as MySQL), a C++
    enum is mapped to such a type (for example, ENUM('red', 'green', 'blue')
    in MySQL). Otherwise, it is mapped to a suitable integer type. Refer to
    Part II, "Database Systems" in the ODB manual for more details on the
    provided mappings.

  * New pragma, id_type, allows the specification of the native database type
    that should be used for data members designated as object identifiers. In
    combination with the type pragma, id_type allows you to map a C++ type
    differently depending on whether it is used in an ordinary member or an
    object id.

  * New options, --odb-prologue-file and --odb-epilogue-file, allow the
    inclusion of file contents into the ODB compilation.

  * Default mapping of the size_t and std::size_t types to a 64-bit integer
    database type irrespective of the platform width. This can be overridden
    with the type pragma.

Source code and pre-compiled binary packages for this release are available
