SQLObject 0.8.3



Hello!

I'm pleased to announce the 0.8.3 release of SQLObject.


What is SQLObject
=================

SQLObject is an object-relational mapper. Your database tables are described
as classes, and rows are instances of those classes. SQLObject is meant to be
easy to use and quick to get started with.

SQLObject supports a number of backends: MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and
Firebird. It also has newly added support for Sybase, MSSQL and MaxDB (also
known as SAPDB).

News since 0.8.2
----------------

Bug Fixes
---------

* Fixed a longstanding bug with .select() ignoring 'limit' parameter.

* Fixed a bug with absent comma in JOINs.

* Fixed sqlbuilder - .startswith(), .endswith() and .contains() assumed
their parameter must be a string; now you can pass an SQLExpression:
Table.q.name.contains(func.upper('a')), for example.

* Fixed a longstanding bug in sqlbuilder.Select() with groupBy being a
sequence.

* Fixed a bug with Aliases in JOINs.

* Yet another patch to properly initialize MySQL connection encoding.

* Fixed a minor comparison problem in test_decimal.py.

Docs
----

* Added documentation about 'validator' Col constructor option.

* Added an answer and examples to the FAQ on how to use sqlmeta.createSQL.

* More documentation about orderBy.
