— Converted the plain-text ChangeLog file to Markdown format, adding only
as much formatting as needed to avoid rendering problems in Vim's
markdown mode and in Fossil's web rendering. Updated all source code
and documentation input file references to the file to now use
"ChangeLog.md". (References from Fossil wiki documents will be updated
MySQL++ was created by Kevin Atkinson during 1998. From version
1.0 (released in June 1999) through 1.7.9 (May 2001), the primary
maintainer was Sinisa Milivojevic <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Neither Kevin
nor Sinisa are currently involved in MySQL++ development. The current
maintainer is Warren Young <email@example.com>, starting with
version 1.7.10 in August of 2004.
For a fuller account of the library's history, see the first chapter of
the user manual. For the nitty-gritty details, see the ChangeLog.md
file in the root package directory. Change log items since 1.7.9 that
aren't attributed to anyone else were done by Warren Young.
Other contributors of note since 1.7.10:
Chris Frey <firstname.lastname@example.org>: Lots of GCC warning fixes
for the bleeding-edge compiler versions, Gentoo ebuild support,
and misc other fixes.
Mark Meredino <Mark_Merendino@cnt.com>: Several fixes and
additions, including a lot of work on Microsoft Visual C++
compatibility, and discoveries made while spelunking in the
Evan Wies <email@example.com>: Contributed several C++ code
Arnon Jalon <Arnon.Jalon@247RealMedia.com>: Added the multi-query
result set handling features, and examples/multiquery.cpp to
Korolyov Ilya has submitted several patches in many different
areas of the library.
Remi Collet <Liste@FamilleCollet.com> is maintaining offical RPMs
for Fedora, with other systems on the way. His work has improved
the RPM spec file we distribute greatly.
Joel Fielder <firstname.lastname@example.org> of Switchplane,
Ltd. created the ScopedConnection class, came up with the original
idea for Query's for_each() and store_in() methods, provided the
basis for examples/for_each.cpp, and provided a fix for exception
flag propagation in Query.
Jim Wallace <email@example.com> demonstrated the need
for BadQuery::errnum(), and contributed the patches and also
examples/deadlock.cpp to test that this feature does what it is
Jonathan Wakely <firstname.lastname@example.org> rebuilt my original versions
of ConnectionPool, RefCountedPointer, and RefCountedBuffer.
They're now simpler and safer. He also created the numeric
conversion logic in lib/mystring.h introduced in v3.0.
Adrian Cornish <email@example.com> Several fixes and
Rick Gutleber <firstname.lastname@example.org> contributed the
Query::insertfrom() method and associated InsertPolicy object,
as well as the SQLStream class.
Here are the personal credits from the old 1.7.9 documentation,
apparently written by Kevin Atkinson:
Chris Halverson - For helping me get it to compile under Solaris.
Fredric Fredricson - For a long talk about automatic conversions.
Michael Widenius - MySQL developer who has been very supportive of
Paul J. Lucas - For the original idea of treating the query object
like a stream.
Scott Barron - For helping me with the shared libraries.
Jools Enticknap - For giving me the Template Queries idea.
M. S. Sriram - For a detailed dission of how the Template Queries
should be implemented, the suggestion to throw exceptions on bad
queries, and the idea of having a back-end independent query
object (ie SQLQuery).
Sinisa Milivojevic - For becoming the new offical maintainer.
D. Hawkins and E. Loic for their autoconf + automake contribution.
See the ChangeLog.md file for further credits and details about the
differences between the many versions of this library.
Please do not email any of these people with general questions about
MySQL++. All of us who are still active in MySQL++ development read the
mailing list, so questions sent there do get to us:
The mailing list is superior to private email because the answers are
archived for future questioners to find, and because you are likely to
get answers from more people.
