[odb-users] Problems with ODB/MySQL and boost::posix_time recording sub-second values

Hi Boris,
Thanks for getting me a new library so quickly. My tests so far don't show a difference and I wonder if I am missing a vital step? I rebuilt the library from the code you provided and modified the reference in the linker for the executable I am building to use the new library. I even re-ran the ODB compiler on my class for good measure, but still no result. Any suggestions?

We just haven't had a chance to update the code yet.

I went ahead and implemented this, however, I haven't had a chance to test it (still waiting for a VM with MySQL 5.6).

If you want to give it a try in the meantime, here is the updated boost profile:


If you do, please let us know whether it works/doesn't work for you.
