> The provider is definitely in a quite usuable state. I've been performing
> basic testing on Linux (Debian w/ DB2) and Windows (WinXP w/ SQL Server &
> Excel db drivers). The mono config file has been updated to handle
> auto-switching of odbc32.dll vs. libodbc.so based on platform.
> The following changes have been commited to CVS:
> - Fixed TinyInt mapping (Thanks Daniel for finding the bug!)
> - Parameter support for all data types (could use further optimization)
> - Implemented full error handling support: OdbcException, OdbcError,
> OdbcErrorCollection. This includes getting the full error message text
> from the ODBC driver.
> - Transaction Isolation Level is supported
> - ExecuteScalar is supported
> - Support CloseConnection CommandBehavior for ExecuteReader
> Known Issues:
> - A number of data types are returned as strings instead of native types
> - Following command behaviors aren't supported: KeyInfo, SchemaOnly,
> - DataAdapter & CommandBuilder still not supported
> Thanks to all who have been road testing the provider (especially Daniel
