Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release, by sending code, bug reports or feature requests.

For those of you waiting for POCO Data, this will be released later this week, as Alex and I need to fix some more things.

I hope you’ll like it.

G√ľnter (now going for a beer to celebrate the release)

  1. Is Poco Data the poco database layer? Gosh, I cannot wait for that:D

  2. Looks like we are looking into Tuesday, May 15th for Data addition to 1.3. Some things I really wanted in (unicode, configurable internal containers, DateTime/Timestamp bindings, etc) did not make this release due to lack of the most precious resource of all – time. Since 1.3.1 is already on the horizon, we’ll do our best to squeeze in any significant features that did not make it in 1.3.

    For those most impatient, Data is in SVN trunk already.

  3. Yea, DateTime is probably really key.
