July

trunk
  • Fixed CORE-4140 - EXECUTE BLOCK's TYPE OF parameters with NONE charset may have be transformed to the connection charset.
  • Investigating CORE-4060

  • Investigating fix for problem that crashs the engine with circular computed by.
  • Working on the java plugin.
  • Improvement CORE-4148 - Increase ISQL buffer size from 64 KB to 10 MB, as the engine.
