Just a quick note that the SOCI database library has been progressing
nicely. The current release supports Oracle and Postgresql, and we
have just recieved contributions of backends for SQLite and MySQL.
The next release (later this month) should thus contain support for
these 4 databases.
Of course we welcome further contributions, e.g. SQLServer/Sybase etc.
We are not yet at the point where we are ready to submit to boost,
but we are moving in that direction.
