- schema/owner prefixing accepted but ignored
- corrected assignment of pl var's bound to a cursor
- fixed length reporting for varchar2 in pl
- divide int/int --> float (sql only, pl will follow in 0.8.8)
- alias recognition with derived tables
- fixes to TO_CHAR
- fixed group by for built-in functions returning VARCHAR

Version 0.8.7 contains fixes for all errors that have been

Upgrade:

The recommended upgrade procedure is to first
uninstall any previous versions of Fyracle and only
then to install the new 0.8.7 release. Remember
to save your configuration files (firebird.conf
and aliases.conf) if you changed them!

The uninstaller has a start menu entry on Windows
and can be found at the top of the install
directory on Linux and Windows.


Roadmap/Outlook:

Fyracle 0.8.8 will move the base system from Firebird 1.5.1
to Firebird 1.5.2 The major enhancement in 0.8.8 will be
support for global temporary tables.


Compiere:

The current Compiere demo is still 2.5.1g The last
upgrade to these files was on Feb 1st. A port of
Compiere 2.5.2 is underway, probably to coincide with
the release of Fyracle 0.8.9
