I've just sent off sybperl 2.05 to CPAN.  This is a bug fix release which
solves most of the problems that have been identified with 2.04 and earlier
releases.

This will (almost certainly) be my last release until I get settled in my
new job (which is going to take at least four weeks), but I will attempt to
continue to follow the discussions on the list during that time.

2.05    Bug Fixes

        BugId      Description

        165        Make fails if DBLIBVS < 461.
        166        bcp_sendrow() truncates binary (ie TEXT/IMAGE)
                   fields if they contain NULL bytes.
        167        The 5.002 make install places local module in
                   $PERL5LIB/site_perl, which is searched *after*
                   $PERL5LIB.
        169        -L$SYBASE/lib comes too late in the
                   $LDFLAGS/$LDDLFLAGS Makefile variables, which can
                   cause the wrong library to be referenced (tcl/tk's
                   libtcl.a vs. Sybase's).
        170        Retrieving numeric data causes the fields to be
                   padded with spaces instead of being NULL terminated
                   after the last digit.


The new version will appear in due course under
"CPAN"/authors/id/MEWP/sybperl-2.05.tar.gz.
