Subject: ANNOUNCE: DBD::Sybase 0.91
Date: Nov 15 2000 1:14AM

The uploaded file

    DBD-Sybase-0.91.tar.gz

has entered CPAN as

  file: $CPAN/authors/id/M/ME/MEWP/DBD-Sybase-0.91.tar.gz
  size: 58730 bytes
   md5: a95ab43918044d2e50694a4f564615c5

This is a minor bug fix release. But as Sybase has released an early
beta of ASE 12.5 for linux I was motivated to check that the code
actually handles the new features of that server, specifically the
longer column lengths (char/varchar can be up to 16000 bytes in
certain circumstances.)

>From the CHANGES file:

Release 0.91

	Removed artificial 1024 byte limit on char/varchar datatypes in 
	result sets.

	Bug Fixes:

	213: BLOBs are returned in HEX, not binary.
