ODB 2.1.1 Released

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

Just a quick note on the release of ODB 2.1.1 today.

In case you are not familiar with ODB, it is an object-relational mapping (ORM) system for C++. It allows you to persist C++ objects to a relational database without having to deal with tables, columns, or SQL, and manually writing any of the mapping code. ODB natively supports SQLite, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server. Pre-built packages are available for GNU/Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, and Solaris. Supported C++ compilers include GCC, MS Visual C++, Sun CC, and Clang.

This is a bug fix-only release which means it doesn’t include any new features or backwards-incompatible changes (if you are looking for new features, check out 2.2.0.a1). When it comes to bugs fixed, there were a few discovered in the past couple of months and they affect each database runtime as well as the ODB compiler itself. For details, see the official ODB 2.1.1 announcement.
