>From the CHANGES file:

Release 0.21

	Added constant() function, so that if DBD::Sybase is use'd you 
	can access some CS_xxx_RESULT constants.
	Added $sth->func('syb_output_params') to allow for easier
	retrieval of stored proc OUTPUT parameters.
	Added syb_do_proc_status database attribute to allow $sth->execute
	to handle stored procedure return status directly, and to fail if
	the stored proc has a non-0 return status. This should also fix 
	bug 255.
	Errors with severity 10 or below are not stored in $DBI::err 
	anymore. Use $dbh->{syb_err_handler} to get at those warning
	Added t/fail.t test script to better test failure modes.
	Setting AutoCommit on a $dbh with active statement handles is now 
	a fatal error.

	Bug Fixes:

	255: Memory leak for prepared statements that are not executed.
	264: make test fails when building DBD::Sybase against
	     OpenClient 10.x.
	266: make test fails when building DBD::Sybase with perl 5.004_04
	     or earlier.
	268: $sth->execute(x,y,z) (ie executing a prepare'd statment that
	     has ?-style placeholders) does not return undef if a
	     constraint violation occurs on the insert/update/delete.

As always, test this new version before putting it in production!
