I am pleased to announce the release of ODB 1.5.0.

ODB is an open-source object-relational mapping (ORM) system for C++. It
allows you to persist C++ objects to a relational database without having
to deal with tables, columns, or SQL and without manually writing any of
the mapping code.

Major new features in this release:

  * Support for the PostgreSQL database, including updates to the Boost
    and Qt profiles.

  * Support for per-class database operations callbacks.

  * New NULL handling mechanism.

  * Ability to specify database default values and additional column
    definition options.

A more detailed discussion of the new features as well as some performance
numbers for the new PostgreSQL support can be found in the following blog

For the complete list of new features in this version see the official
release announcement:

ODB is written in portable C++ and you should be able to use it with any
modern C++ compiler. In particular, we have tested this release on GNU/Linux
(x86/x86-64), Windows (x86/x86-64), Mac OS X, and Solaris (x86/x86-64/SPARC)
with GNU g++ 4.2.x-4.5.x, MS Visual C++ 2008 and 2010, and Sun Studio 12.
The currently supported database systems are MySQL, SQLite, and PostgreSQL.
