It comes with mxODBC, our universal ODBC database interface for Python.
mxODBC 3.0 has received a large number of enhancements and supports more ODBC drivers than ever.
Note that in order to avoid confusion, we've decided to rename the eGenix.com mx Commercial Distribution to eGenix.com mxODBC Distribution with this release. The commercial distribution has always only contained the mxODBC package, so this was an obvious step to clarify things for our users.
Please note that mxODBC 2.0 does not support Python 2.5 on 64-bit platforms due to the Py_ssize_t changes in the Python C API.
You are encouraged to upgrade to the new mxODBC 3.0 release, if you plan to deploy on 64-bit platforms and use Python 2.5 as basis for your applications.
This release brings you all the new features and enhancements in mxODBC that were previously only available in through our mxODBC Zope Database Adapter.
Like the Zope product, mxODBC now requires that you install a license in order to use it.
You can request 30-day evaluation licenses by writing to email@example.com, stating your name (or the name of the company) and the number of eval licenses that you need. We will then issue you licenses and send them to you by email.
Please make sure that you can receive ZIP file attachments on the email you specify in the request, since the license files are send out as ZIP attachements.
Please visit the eGenix mxODBC Distribution page for downloads, instructions on installation and documentation of the packages.
Note that in order to use the eGenix mxODBC Distribution you need to install the eGenix mx Base Distribution first.
For more information on the eGenix mx Distributions, licensing and download instructions, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
