I'd like to announce the availability of the version 0.7.0 of the native
postgresql driver for OpenOffice.org database API for windows and linux x86.
The driver's homepage can be found here:
Compared to Version 0.6.2, the following things have changed. In case,
the described problems don't affect you, there is no reason to upgrade:
- raised driver from alpha to beta state ( no serious bugs have been
reported for the earlier versions)
- fixed several issues with the former driver version and OO2.0.x (
problems with table creation, table renaming and crashes in user
administration have been fixed)
- data can now be inserted into tables without oids and the addition
gets correctly reflected in the UI. This also holds for tables with auto
increment values in the primary key. In former versions, this was only
the case for tables with oids. However the current solution requires
some additional reflection queries, which makes it a little slow and
- fixed a crash when executing native sql (see i52352). The bug itself
is not fixed though, native sql statements still return empty resultsets
- adding/deleting users and password change is now supported (OOo2.0).
Privilege administration is still not supported.
About the driver:
The driver allows to directly use the postgresql database from
OpenOffice.org without any other wrapper layer such as odbc or jdbc.
The driver is aimed at the 1.1.x and 2.x OpenOffice.org versions, it
does not work with OOo1.0.x trees. It should work with all postgresql
servers of version 7.3.x and above (including 8.x ).
PS: followups in dev(at)dba(dot)openoffice(dot)org
