> What is the schedule for the next release of the JayBird driver?

Next release will be 2.0 and will include many new features:

- full support for Services API (backup/restore, user management, etc);
- support for updatable result sets
- execution plan in statements
- no caching in auto-commit mode
- reworked JCA code

First three issues are solved, last is almost solved (reconnecting an
in-limbo transaction for recovery is the only problem there), I am
currently doing big refactoring of the transaction management to fix
caching in auto-commit mode. Current state of the driver is not
acceptable even for alpha release, it's in the middle of refactoring. I
think I need one month to finish this task, and if there will be no
pending changes from Gabriel Reid and Steven Jardine, then we can start
with the release cycle.

I do not plan to release 1.5.6 version, but if there is demand for it -
I will check how hard would it be to backport fixes from HEAD to
If that is not too complex, I will do this.

Can you please provide a list of bugfixes to port (the best would a list
of ChangeLog entries, file is available from CVS)?
