connector/odbc 3.51.21

after eight releases, we have gone from over 150 open bugs to under 70 bugs.

one of the really old bugs we are still looking at is how identifiers that are reserved words (or have non-alphanumeric characters) are handled from ado. as far as we can tell, the driver is doing everything correctly, and it is ado that is failing to properly quote the identifiers, but we have gotten some developers at microsoft involved in tracking the problem from that end.

just today there was a new bug filed about using the driver with visual basic 6, which was itself released in 1998. i am going to have to build a vm image with that installed so i can do some testing.

the next release of the new 5.1 branch should be out later this week. we will probably limit the scope of new features we are going to implement in 5.1 so that we can get unicode support and the other already-implemented features out there as a beta (and then production/ga) release sooner.

I always read your blog and I have been a faithful reader for a long time. However, I have a confession to make.

I often times don't understand it.

Visual basic 6? 5.1 branch? Vm image? Yes, it goes right over my head.

Still, despite the fact that I often dance in the dark when I visit, I love your blog. I'm so grateful you've been blogging downtown since 2000.

Thanks, Jim.
