2016-01-26 Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 6.7.0 release
	* sql/utils.lisp: Apply patch from Martin Simmons for
	Lispworks 7 compatiblity

2016-01-17 Russ Tyndall 
        * applied patches from Javeier Olaechea
	* allows unix socket connections in clsql-postgressql-socket3
	* modernize asd slightly

2015-10-09 Russ Tyndall 
        * add decimals.lisp file https://github.com/tlikonen/cl-decimals
	* use this for safe parsing of numeric / decimal / rational types
	* Added because newer postgres print money types as currency strings

2015-08-12 Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 6.6.3 release
	* db-oracle/oracle-sql.lisp: Patch for PostgreSQL socket interface
	for unicode characters. Thanks to Jason Melbye.

2015-06-02 Daniel Kochmański 
	* clsql.asd, sql/package.lisp: Add ECL compatibility fixes
	* sql/db-interface.lisp: Fix declaration typo

2015-04-06 Russ Tyndall 
	* sql/operations, sql/expressions: add postgresql E-string
	operator / expression.  Needed for correct regex handling
	EG: [E "some string"]=> E'some string'

2015-03-30 Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 6.6.2 release
	* db-oracle/oracle-sql.lisp: Remove extra hyphen, thanks to
	Thomas Vossen
2015-03-24 Russ Tyndall 
	* sql/oodml.lisp: fixed call-next-method in the base of
	read-sql-value and replaced with a continuable
	* default read-sql-value for list
	* tests for sql-value-conversion-errors and list

2015-03-18 Russ Tyndall 
	* {uffi,db-mysql}/Makefile: remove -pie build hardening for
	which caused load issues for Linux Mint

2015-03-18 Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 6.6.1 release
	* {uffi,db-mysql}/Makefile: Remove pie from build
	hardening options for Debian/Ubuntu systems. Thanks to
	DJ  and Russ Tyndall 

2015-02-26 Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 6.6.0 release
	* {uffi,db-mysql}/Makefile: Add build hardening for Debian

2015-02-24 Russ Tyndall 
	* mysql-sql.lisp
	an error in type declarations generating a compilation warning
	was being treated as an error in recent SBCLs, fixed the type
	warning by correcting the type (still a ton of compliation

2015-02-23 Russ Tyndall 
	* sql/metaclasses.lisp
	made reinitialize-instance return the instance passed to it as
	SBCL now expected (mentioned on the SBCL-devel mailing list by

2014-12-03 Russ Tyndall 
	* sqlite-sql.lisp
	Added database arg to `canonicalize-result-types` so that it could
	correctly call `sqlite-aref` with the required number of arguments
	Thanks Zach Beane for the bug report.

2014-07-29 Russ Tyndall 
	* mysql-api.lisp, mysql-sql.lisp, test-connection.lisp
	Added code to the mysql backend to pull all result sets as
	multiple args.  This fixes a bug in the mysql backend where trying
	to query after executing a stored procedure (even on a pooled
	connection) would raise an error about the connection being out of
	sync.  The second result set for the stored procedure seems to be
	empty, so not sure why we need to iterate past it.

	patch / bugreport provided by: Ilya Khaprov deadtrickster@github

2014-06-11 Russ Tyndall 
	* databases.lisp, sqlite3-sql.lisp
	Similar to and overriding the patch 2014-01-30 937a3d, adds a
	default-encoding variable uses that in places where a nil encoding
	was being passed. Defaults to :utf-8.  This is mostly in place so
	that uffi and cffi both work similarly (by moving the default into
	clsql instead of clsql-uffi).  This allows my automated build
	environment to do its job

2014-06-10 Russ Tyndall 

	* db-mysql/Makefile - the results of dpkg-buildflags --get LDFLAGS
	seem to have changed on my system and and sed was returning
	invalid command line arguments to ld.  To resolve this I changed
	sed to emit valid args, which seems to have resolved the issue.

2014-04-24 Russ Tyndall 
	* oodml.lisp, test-oodml.lisp Better handling of view-slots of
	type symbol/keyword.  Better handling of printing and reading
	bindings (per mailing list request, always read and write in base

2014-03-04  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 6.5.0: New release
	* makefile.common: Check for /usr/bin/dpkg-buildflags
	* {db-mysql,uffi}/Makefile: Use debian buildflags

2014-02-24 Russ Tyndall 
	* oodml.lisp bind *print-length* to nil before printing
	lists/arrays to the database.

2014-01-30 Russ Tyndall 
	* sqlite3-sql.lisp specify :utf-8 as the default encoding if there
	is not one (allows :clsql-cffi to be closer to working for this

	I ran the test suite successfully once with :clsql-cffi, but there
	after I got spurious errors and especially unrecoverable errors
	while connecting about the database being locked

2014-01-30 Russ Tyndall 
	* sqlite3-sql.lisp, fddl.lisp Dont compare database-identifiers
	with invalid comparison operators

2014-01-30 Russ Tyndall 
	* generic-odbc.lisp, ooddl.lisp, generic-postgresql.lisp,
	test-init.lisp, ds-nodes.lisp, generic-odbc.lisp, odbc-sql.lisp

	auto-increment-column support improvement (mssql esp, now will
	auto-fill after insert). Use +auto-increment-names+ to determine

	This triggered much test failing as regards normalized classes /
	autoincrement primary key stuff.

	New odbc-postgresql-database sub-type

	1 ) Previously all classes in a normalized heirachy had their p-key
	marked as "auto-increment".  Usually auto-increment means a key
	supplied by the database system, so this was decidedly
	non-standard usage (clsql is explicitly providing the key for all
	normalized subclasses of any given parent see ds-nodes.lisp). Some
	RDMS will not allow insertion/updates of autoincrement columns
	without hoop jumping and, as it doesnt really make much sense, I
	removed the "auto-increment" aspects of normalized sub-classes.
	Now the primary keys are chained regardless. The parent-most key
	can be autoincrement or not.

	2 ) ODBC Postgresql connections are now both GENERIC-ODBC-DATABASE
	and GENERIC-POSTGRESQL-DATABASE.  Probably not a widely used path,
	but this change allows most of the previously failing tests to
	pass on this backend (we now format stuff correctly for postgres).
	I anticipate this probably is not perfect yet (IE: I probably
	missed something)

2014-01-29 Russ Tyndall 
	* oodml.lisp, generics.lisp - added
	clsql-sys::view-classes-and-storable-slots generic (added method
	previously).  Also added to-database-p keyword to allow overrides
	to distinguish between the two situations. Mostly so that
	clsql-helper:dirty-slots-mixin can filter slots when writing
	values to the database but still allow all slots to be read from
	the database

2014-01-17 Russ Tyndall 
	* oodml.lisp, generics.lisp - added filter-select-list generic
	  to allow fine grained control of generated query/object mappings
2014-01-07 Russ Tyndall 
	* clsql-uffi.lisp, sqlite3 auto-increment support
	* clsql-uffi.lisp, test-basic.lisp, fixes related to unsigned vs
          signed ints (thanks Aaron Burrow)
	* cleaning and testing

2013-09-27 Russ Tyndall 
	* fixed bug converting to boolean in db-mysql/mysql-sql.lisp
	from github user Sectoid https://github.com/UnwashedMeme/clsql/pull/1

2013-06-19 Russ Tyndall 
        * sql/oodml.lisp, db-postgresql-socket3/sql.lisp,
          db-mysql/mysql-objects.lisp, sql/generic-odbc.lisp
        Refactored read-sql-value similar to the other recent refactorings

        * the symbol case now uses intern instead of read-from-string
          (which may not return a symbol and could have security issues
          since read-eval was not being unset)

        * read-eval is now off for all cases

        * centralized logic into a single case statement, hopefully making
          this more readable and debuggable

        * TODO: make these refactorings to the oracle backend (I cannot
          test against oracle and am loathe to change without testing

2013-06-19 Russ Tyndall 
        * sql/mysql-objects.lisp
        Found and refactored a way some more eql specified methods of
        database-get-type-specifier in mysql

2013-06-18 Russ Tyndall 
        * sql/oodml.lisp, sql/mysql-objects.lisp
        refactored database-output-sql-as-type in a similar fashion to
        the previous refactor of database-get-type-specifier (fewer
        methods using case instead of eql specifiers)

        * removed very strange definition of outputing floats as strings
          for something sane (it was previously doing silly work like
          setting the default read float type (which AFAICT doesnt affect

        * half of the cases nil returned "" other times it returned nil,
          now if we get a null value we return nil always

        * removed odd-logic (seemingly untouched since the initial import),
          that removed null characters from printed lists.  If we have #\null
          in a printed list, we had probably better figure out what went wrong
          there rather than destructively modifying the list output on the way
          to the DB ;; removed (substitute-char-string escaped #\Null " ")

2013-06-18 Russ Tyndall 
        * sql/generic-odbc.lisp, sql/generic-postgresql.lisp, sql/oodml.lisp

	refactored database-get-type-specifier for postgres and mssql

        Single methods with a case on the symbol arg (similar to the recent
        refactoring in oodml.lisp)

        This reduces line count and generally makes it easier to find and
        read all the backend-specific types

2013-06-10 Russ Tyndall 
        * sql/oodml.lisp, sql/generic-postgresql.lisp, doc/ref-fddl.xml,

	Updated get-database-type-specifier to handle text/longchar type
	and refactored

        * added a warning above defaulting to VARCHAR (since its probably
        NOT what is expected on a bad type specifier).

        * added a case where the specified type being a string, passes
        that string directly (to better/more easily allow db-specific

        * added cases where longchar or text converts to text, and
        exported those symbols (as this seemed type seemed to be missing
        from fddl/oddl anyway).

        * reorganized these default methods into a single method with a
        case statement rather than many eql specified methods (about half
        the code)

         * updated the docs to use text instead of longchar since text is
         a more standard db-type (pg,my,and ms all use text)

2013-11-23 Kiss Kalman 
	* utils/sql.lisp: Commit patch adding ccl getenv support

2013-04-17 Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 6.4.1
	* sql/utils.lisp: Patch from Ben Hyde to add weak hash table
	support for CCL.

2013-03-07 Ryan Davis 
	* db-postgresql-socket/postgresql-socket-api.lisp - bugfix to
	adapt to changes in md5:md5sum-sequence. CLSQL now requires a
	version of MD5 released on or after 2012-11-25 (the latest version
	currenty in quicklisp). Thanks to Nicolas Neuss for the bug
	* db-odbc/odbc-sql.lisp - keep a reference to the original
	connection spec used to create `odbc-database` connections

2013-01-09 Russ Tyndall 
	sql/oodml.lisp - changed view-classes-and-storable-slots to a
	method (as it was intended to be all along)

2012-12-19 Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 6.4

2012-11-20 Russ Tyndall 
	## Large refactoring of sql/oodml.lisp and surrounding code
	* cleaned up update-records-from-* to utilize a single codepath
	  previously there was much duplicate code
	* tried to further unify direct/effective slot-defs
	* cleaned up much of the normalized classes code to be more
	  consistent in how it operated, and the code it used (less
	  copy/paste more functions)
	* tried to standardize iteration a bit, previously almost all
	  of the iteration constructs in CL were used. Tried to
	  standardize on loop for readability / cohesiveness
	* made functions to more easily look up particular slots, since
	  this was being done differently in each function
	* added more doc-strings and updated documentation about
	  normalized classes
	* inner-joins that are referenced in where clauses are no longer
	  added to the select table list (since they are also referenced
	  in the join position and this led to sql errors)
	* collect-table-references methods added for sql-ident-table and

	## Semantic changes
	* disallow where-less updates from objects (ie cannot call
          update-records-from* with a keyless object)
	* ordered-class-direct-slots now returns direct-slot-definitions
	  instead of effective-slot-definitions (as per name)
	* direct-slot-definitions now contain the db-info hash table (same
	  as effective slots)
	* removed this-class arg from update-instance-from-records - used to
	  be used for normalized code, no longer needed for that.
	* find-all - bug fixes in table references, previously where clauses
	  surrounded by a list would have none of their references added to
	  the select. This was being exploited by certain code paths.  Now
	  all where clauses are searched
	  - No longer includes order-by and distinct as columns in the select
	    list.  The values seemed to be ignored in every code path and distinct
	    seemed to be intended to be used as a boolean anyway

2012-11-20  Nathan Bird  

	* update-objects-joins - changed the default of slot from t (which
	  used to mean :deferred) to :immediate (to match the default
	  behavior of other parts of the system).  It also seemed like a bad
	  default to pull all the slots that were explicitly specified to be
	  not pulled by default.  This function now accepts more special
	  values (:immediate, :deferred, :all, or a list of slots).  To get
	  the old behavior call with :slots :deferred.

2012-10-30  Russ Tyndall 
	* sql/command-object.lisp - added dates/times to the parameter value
	coersion and pulled this into a new generic prepare-sql-parameter

2012-09-04  Kevin Rosenberg  
	* Version 6.3 released

2012-09-04  Russ Tyndall 
	* sql/expressions.lisp - Try to respect the casing of symbols
	where it seems intentional (ie: is not default). This should fix
	a failing test case, and I think behaves more understandibly.

	If you specify a casing '|Foo Bar| lets treat that a string "Foo Bar"
	and output it escaped

2012-08-28  Ryan Davis 
	* db-sqlite3/sqlite3-api.lisp - allow pathnames in the connection
	settings, so '("/db/my.sqlite") and '(#P"/db/my.sqlite") are
	equivalent. Updated the docs to match.

2012-08-17  Russ Tyndall  
	* db-postgresql-socket3/package.lisp - shadow
	postgresql-notification for compatibility with new
	cl-postgres (Thanks Zach)

2012-07-09  Russ Tyndall  
        * sql/oodml.lisp - fixed a bug where the order by was being
	destructively modified, causing odd caching issues when the
	selected object was not statically known (eg unreferenced tables
	could show up in the query if they were cached by a previous call
	through this function.  I replaced this code with a
	non-destructive variant which should solve this.

	Thanks to Philipp Marek for the bug report

2012-06-25  Russ Tyndall  
	* sql/util.lisp, sql/metaclasses.lisp
	Dequote database-identifiers if needed (passed a quoted symbol)
	Metaclass args come through unquoted, so this eases interactions
	with them

2012-06-22  Russ Tyndall  
	* sql/metaclasses.lisp: Changed compute-effective-slot-definition
	to correctly copy the autoincrement-sequence slot to the ESD
	previously it was being skipped (seemingly by accident).  Thanks
	to flip214 on #lisp for the bug report

2012-04-26  Kevin Rosenberg  
	* Version 6.2 released: thanks to all the contributors!

2012-04-25  Nathan Bird  

	* doc/threading-warnings.txt: Adding some notes from J.T.Klein
	about the current state of thread-safety in clsql. This should be
	incorporated into the main docs at some point.

2012-04-25  Russ Tyndall 
	* sql/expressions.lisp (output-sql): on rendering update/insert
	expression values, ensure that *in-subselect* is bound to T
	so that the values will be correctly paren delimited

2012-04-24  Nathan Bird  

	* sql/expressions.lisp (output-sql): on mysql CREATE TABLE
	statements use 'ENGINE=innodb' instead of 'Type=InnoDB'. This has
	apparently been preferred since mysql 4.1 and mysql 5.5 removed
	type as a valid keyword.

2012-03-28  Russ Tyndall 

        * sql/sequences.lisp: [A Patch FROM 2011-07-28 changed sequences.
	They were previously prefixed with _CLSQL_SEQ_ but are now
	suffixed with _CLSQL_SEQ. This is likely to break existing
	implementations using the default sequence names

	setting *old-sequence-names* to T, should force using the older
	naming scheme

2012-03-27  Ryan Davis  

	* sql/expressions.lisp: Fixed bug with subqueries in the where
	clause of update-records and delete-records generating invalid
	SQL. Previously subselects in where clauses would not have enough
	parentheses, for example: "WHERE Id IN SELECT foo_id FROM bar"
	vs. "WHERE Id IN (SELECT foo_id FROM bar)"
	* tests/test-syntax.lisp: Added tests for using subqueries in the
	where clause in update-records and delete-records. Moved asserts
	in the test-output-sql/sql-ident-table function into the standard
	test framework.
	* doc/appendix.xml: added :connection-string to the information on
	ODBC connection specs, and added example code connecting to ODBC

2012-01-05  Nathan Bird  

	* db-odbc/odbc-dbi.lisp: handle sql decimal type in the same way
	as numeric type-- read into a double float.

2011-01-04  Russ Tyndall  
	* sql/operations.lisp

	Fixed bug reported by JTK related to the not-null sql-expression
	especially as used in conjunction with the is operator.

	Made null called with more than one argument throw an exception
	instead of silently discarding all arguments past the first

2012-01-04  Nathan Bird  

	* db-odbc/odbc-api.lisp (%sql-driver-connect): in the call to
	odbc's SQLDriverConnect default the WindowHandle argument to a null ptr so
	that connecting with :connection-string will work in the default

	I.e. you can now do things like:
	(clsql:connect '("DsnName" "UserName" "" :connection-string
	:database-type :odbc)

	I believe the DsnName and Username at that point are only used when
	printing the connection information.

2011-12-20  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 6.1.1
	* db-oracle/oracle.lisp: Typo correction (Elias Martenson)

2011-12-19  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 6.1.0
	* db-oracle/oracle.lisp: Change length function to
	uffi:foreign-string-length to handle foreign encodings.
	Thanks to Elias Martenson.

2011-11-28  Russ Tyndall  
	* db-odbc/odbc-api.lisp, tests/test-time.lisp

	In ODBC backend, avoid going through the common lisp
	universal-time type (because it lacks support for historic dates)

	*time-conversion-function* renamed to *time-format*

	Patch from: Francisco Vides Fernandez

2011-10-18  Russ Tyndall  
	* db-odbc/odbc-api.lisp

	Added type specifier so MSSQL nvarchar fields can make it through

2011-09-12  Russ Tyndall  
	* sql/fddl.lisp sql/generic-postgres.lisp db-mysql/mysql-sql.lisp
	sql/generic-odbc.lisp sql/odbc-api.lisp sql/odbc-dbi.lisp

	Fix bugs in list-attribute(s|-types) where passing an escaped,
	instead of unescaped column name, caused these functions to return
	less data than they should have.

2011-08-03  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* CLSQL 6.0.0 released

2011-07-28  Russ Tyndall  

	* db-postgresql-socket3/: Added a backend that utilized postgres
	socket api version 3.  Uses the cl-postgres project (from
	postmodern) to handle this.  Allows use of parameterized /
	prepared queries using clsql:command-object

	* sql/{expressions,fddl, generic-postgresql, ooddl}.lisp:
	Change how database identifiers are emitted to hopefully make this
	less brittle, and more easily intuitable.

	Previously every code path that wanted to emit a
	database identifier was responsible for coercing what was provided
	into a correctly escaped string.  Sometimes two or three functions
	in a row were trying to correctly quote and output that string.  I
	have tried to centralize this type coercion and logic into a
	single code path.

	everything should now call (escaped-database-identifier thing)
	immediately before splicing a database identifier into string being
	sent to the database

   	* sql/oodml.lisp: added method choose-database-for-instance, which
	allows overriding which database connections are used based on
	object type.  Can be used to prevent connection conflicts in
	multi-threaded environments

	* sql/syntax.lisp: [foo bar] and [foo.bar] read into the same
	clsql expression now (they used to be output the same, but after
	the above database-identifier change, they were output separately

	* test/: Better, more tests, better type coercion in tests and
	throughout (%get-int)

       [edit 2012-03-28 - RT]
	* sql/sequences.lisp: Sequences were previously prefixed with
	_CLSQL_SEQ_ but are now suffixed with _CLSQL_SEQ. This is likely
	to break existing implementations using the default sequence names

	setting *old-sequence-names* to T, should force using the older
	naming scheme

2011-07-16  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 5.4.0 release

2011-06-27  Nathan Bird  
	* db-odbc/: memory management improvements: leak slower
	* MSSQL: TOP + DISTINCT work together

2011-06-20  Nathan Bird  

	* sql/time.lisp: Handle parsing already parsed objects.
	* sql/oodml.lisp: raise exception if we generate an update with no
	where clause; incorporate Ryszard Szopa's patch for functional
	expressions in :order-by
	* sql/expressions.lisp: (listify nil) => nil instead of (nil).
	* db-odbc/: bugfixes for working with older versions of FreeTDS;
	support for bigints that works on mssql and postgres
	* MSSQL improvements: use top instead of limit, IDENTITY can be a
	column constraint, clsql:date becomes 'smalldatetime'

2011-06-20  Nathan Bird  

	* Version 5.3.4
	* db-postgresql-socket/postgresql-socket-api.lisp: Addendum
	to Otto Diesenbacher's patch that had a spurious write a 0
	byte (to terminate string) that should have been just CCL.

2011-06-12  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 5.3.3
	* db-postgresql-socket/postgresql-socket-api.lisp:
	Patch from Otto Diesenbacher for UTF8 encoded strings
	for CCL. FIXME: The best patch would be to use the
	user-set encoding from the database object and use
	UFFI's encoding strings to/from octet vectors rather
	than SB-UNICODE and CCL specific code in this file.

2011-04-21  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* sql/generics.lisp: Add defgeneric for new

2011-04-01  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 5.3.2
	* db-mysql/mysql-client-info.lisp: Add recognition of
	version 6 of MySQL client library.
	* sql/metaclass.lisp: Fix the fix in the reader conditional

2011-03-30  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 5.3.1
	* sql/metaclasses.lisp: Fix previous patch to work
	on non-SBCL systems

2011-03-29  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 5.3.0
	* sql/metaclasses.lisp: Apply one-line patch to fix
	for newer SBCL (thanks to Nikodemus Siivola)
	* many_files: Applied multiple patches from Holger Schauer
	to improve autoincrement capability.

2010-10-24  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 5.2.0
	* db-odbc/odbc-api.lisp: Change from SBCL-specific
	to UFFI version of octets-to-strings. Reported by
	Daniel Brunner 
	* sql/oodml.lisp: Apply patch from Rupert Swarbrick
	: Fix behaviour with auto-inc
	primary keys.
	* sql/expressions.lisp, tests/test-syntax.lisp: Apply
	patch from Russ Tyndall	to quote identifiers with space
	or special character.

2010-09-20  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 5.1.4
	* sql/{pool,database}.lisp: Pass encoding argument to

	* sql/fdml.lisp: Fix DO-QUERY to actually return the last value of
	the body.

2010-03-02  Nathan Bird  
	* doc/: Added a README on how to build doc; now builds on Ubuntu.
	* sql/oodml.lisp: READ-SQL-VALUE now has explicit method for
	handling double-floats and the default method will no longer
	attempt to convert values that have already been converted.

	* Version 5.0.2
	* sql/database.lisp: Fix missing slot-accessor 
	(Thanks to Stelian Ionescu)
	* sql/generics.lisp: Add missing keyword to defgeneric
	(Thanks to Stelian Ionescu)

2010-02-07  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 5.0.1
	* sql/{base-classes,database}.lisp: Add encoding slot for 
	non-ASCII strings.
	* db-mysql/mysql-sql.lisp: Use UFFI:FOREIGN-ENCODED-OCTET-COUNT.
	Requires UFFI version 1.8.2 or above.

2010-02-06  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 5.0.0: First release of CLSQL to formally and
	consistently support non-ASCII strings with encoding of external
	formats for SQL strings. UFFI version 1.8.1 is higher is required.

	This change may introduce some differences in string handling for
	people who are using non-ASCII encoded characters.  Thus, because
	of the risk of BACKWARD INCOMPATIBILITY, the major version number
	was incremented with this release.

2010-02-06  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* tests/test-i18n.lisp: Bind UFFI:*DEFAULT-EXTERNAL-FORMAT*
	for testing multibyte encodings.

	compute-lisp-type-from-specified-type, then use t as lisp type.
	Issue noted when testing Clozure CL 1.4.

2010-02-06  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* tests/test-init.lisp: Turn off the benign console notices for
	testing on postgres.

2010-02-05  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* clsql-test.asd, tests/{test-i18n,test-init}.lisp:

	* Version 4.3.3
	* clsql-cffi.asd: New file that causes CLSQL to use
	CFFI-UFFI-COMPAT library rather than UFFI. Perform 'asdf:load-op
	on CLSQL-CFFI rather than CLSQL system to use CFFI-UFFI-COMPAT.

2010-01-29  Nathan Bird  
	* tests/*.lisp: A lot more tests and test setup tweaks.
	* sql/expressions.lisp: output-sql on sql-relational-exp does
	better arity checking now. (apply #'sql-and some-list) gives
	better results.

29 Jan 2009  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* sql/oodml.lisp: Fix for UPDATE-RECORD-FROM-SLOTS for normalized
	view classes

	normalized view classes.

10 Dec 2009  Kevin Rosenberg 
	Large patch from Thijs Oppermann  to add
	support for normalized view classes.  When having view class that
	inherit from others, CLSQL by default builds tab all the columns
	from the parent in the child. This patch is meant to normali so
	that a join is done on the primary keys of the concerned tables to
	get a set.

10 Dec 2009  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* sql/time.lisp: Patch from Oleg Tihonov to SYNTAX-PARSE-ISO-8601

	interface libraries. This requires the installation of multiarch build tools
	as well as 32-bit support libraries (libc, libz and libmysqlclient).

04 Sep 2009  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 4.1.1
	* sql/fdml.lisp: Rework do-query to use supplied database
	parameter when passed a sql-object-query
	(thanks to JTK )
	* sql/generic-postgresql.lisp: Allow optional connect
	parameters for postgresql databases (thanks to Stephen Compall)
	* doc/ref-{clsql,connect}.xml, sql/db-interfaces.lisp:
	Fix transposed letters (thanks to Stephen Compall)
	* db-mysql/Makefile: Add directory for MacPorts mysql5 port

	* clsql-mysql.asd/db-mysql/mysql-loader.lisp: Commit
	patch from Andreas Franke to honor windows drive letter
	when loading clsql_mysql C library.

31 Aug 2009  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 4.1.0
	* db-mysql/mysql-{sql,api}.lisp,db-mysql/clsql_mysql.c:
	Latest version of mysqlclient once again changed the C
	structures from which the mysql backend reads data.
	Rather than adding yet another structure definition which
	is enabled by the client version as read by mysql-client-info.lisp,
	the mysql backend has been re-written to ignore in the internal
	C structures. Instead, C wrapper functions for slot access have
	been added to clsql_mysql.c and are used by mysql-sql.lisp to
	access the internals of C structures. This adds a bit of overhead,
	but completely separates the lisp code from trying to keep up
	with the continually changing internal C structure of mysql.
	All tests in the test suite executed correctly with this change.

31 Aug 2009  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 4.0.6
	* sql/database.lisp: Fix syntax on process-lock (thanks to

	* Version 4.0.3
	* sql/metaclasses.lisp: Unify base-table processing by extracting 
	the correct code from initialize-instance :around into the helper
	function set-view-table-slot. Call that function also in
	reinitialize-instance :around replacing erroneous code discovered
	by Josh Feinstein.
17 Nov 2007  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* BUGS: Add note about benefit of using configure file to create
	Makefiles (suggestion from Joe Corneli)

	* Version 4.0.0: Major version increase to warn of potential
	backwards incompatibility.
	* NEWS: Document potentional backward incompatible changes
	* db-mysql/mysql-sql.lisp: Changes session SQL mode to ANSI immediately
	after connecting. This may break compatibility with some applications
	who are using non-ANSI features with MySQL. This change is required to
	properly support view-classes using a string as their :base-table
	attribute. This allows users to specify the case of table names. 
	This is feature is even	more essential for MySQL itself since MySQL
	uses case-sensitive table names. Use connection-based database-create
	and database-destroy rather than trying to invoke command-line mysql 
	utility. Remove automatic upcasing of strings from list-indices. 
	* db-postgresql/postgresql-sql.lisp: Use connection-based 
	database-create	and database-destroy rather than trying to invoke
	command-line utilities.
	* db-postgresql-socket/postgresql-socket-sql.lisp: Use
	database-execute-command rather than execute-command for
	database-{create,destroy}. Connect to postgres database
	rather than template1 for those database creation/deletion.
	* sql/metaclasses.lisp: Store the string value of :base-table if a 
	string is provided. Perform sql-escape at time of view-table name
	* tests/test-init.lisp: Use "ej_join" as a string, rather than a 
	symbol, since "ej_join"	is specified as :base-table. Clear the
	expression output-cache in case the code for generating sql output
	has changed.
	* test/test-oodml.lisp: whitespace fix
	* sql/ooddl.lisp: Use quoted string for primary key constraint if
	table name is specified as a string.
	* sql/oodml.lisp: Don't convert a string view-table name to database's 
	default case.
	* sql/expressions.lisp: Properly handle table and attribute identifiers
	when they are a string. Do not change case of symbols to match database
	default case.
	* sql/operations.lisp: Change multiword symbols to upper case.
	* sql/fddl.lisp: Quote base-table if a string to preserve case
	for drop-table and create-table.
	* tests/test-syntax.lisp: Add tests of low-level string attribute
20 Jul 2007  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 3.8.6
	* db-oracle/oracle-loader.lisp: Rework use of ORACLE_HOME directory
	(problem noted on clsql-devel by icardo Boccato Alves)
	* sql/pool.lisp: Remove incorrect keyword
	* sql/database.lisp: Rework WITH-DATABASE to not make the database the
	default database (reported by Saurabh Nanda and Chaitanya Gupta)
	* doc/ref-connect.lisp: Update the documentation to WITH-DATABASE to
	emphasis that make-default has a default value of nil.
	* sql/transaction.lisp: Adjust commit/rollback messages for Microsoft
	SQL Server. (patch from Nathan Bird)
	* sql/metaclasses.lisp: Use finalize-inheritance hack on SBCL because
	of trouble with def-view-class compilations (patch from Nathan Bird)
15 Jul 2007  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 3.8.5
	* db-mysql/mysql-loader.lisp: Revert previous change since libmysql is
	not dynamically loaded on Windows
22 Jun 2007  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* Version 3.8.4
	* db-mysql/mysql-loader.lisp: Do not bother loading libmysqlclient since
	that library is dymically linked to clsql-mysql library. Thus, the mysql
	library will be automatically loaded. This has only been tested on Linux,
	thus far.

29 May 2007  Kevin Rosenberg 
	* tests/test-fddl.lisp: Add :order-by for :fddl/big/1 as
	reported by Ricardo Boccato Alves

	* db-postgresql/postgresql-{api,loader,sql,package}.lisp:
	Apply patch from Edi Weitz to avoid conflict with new Lispworks 5
	POSTGRESQL package name. CLSQL's new package will be PGSQL, however
	on non-Lispworks platforms, the nickname POSTGRESQL will still be
	available. Applications directly using low-level POSTGRESQL package
	are recommended to use the new PGSQL name.
	* db-oracle/oracle-{api,sql}.lisp, sql/{expressions,loop-extension}.lisp,
