Subject Re: JayBird - is a version update scehdule?

"- no caching in auto-commit mode" is probably the most important
(this is related to memory correct?) ... I would rather you forge
ahead and get to the next major release instead of spend cycles back-
fitting for a patch - especially if the new release targeted for
around May...? What I need is a guess (WAG) on a release so I can
plan for integration to a client's software release - once their
software is deployed it won't be updatable for over 6 months
(environmentally isolated environment) so I want to get the best
possible driver beforehand.

So - can we expect May (or late May) for 2.0?
