Hello, After many weeks of development, and despite the lack of free time mostly due to the birth of my son, it was released a new version of Metabase - the PHP abstraction to develop database independent applications.
The main new feature is the full support to the creation and access to table fields of type BLOB (Binary Large OBject) that as you know serves the purpose of storing large ammounts of data that usually is stored in files. This capacity is implemented in a fully portable way, which is the style of Metabase, that works seeminglessly with all supported databases: MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS SQL , Oracle, Informix, Interbase and ODBC. The main manual and tutorial documents were updated to teach you on how to use this new capacity. Another change is the distribution license that is now fully compliant on the BSD style license which is officially approved as an Open Source license. From now on it is clear that Metabase may be freely used and distributed, including within Linux distributions and applications, including commercial ones. Metabase may be freely downloaded from this site as usual. http://phpclasses.UpperDesign.com/browse.html/package/20 For those that would like to meet me and live near Germany, I will be attending the PHP Conference.
