ODPI-C 2.0.0 Release Candidate 2 is now available on GitHub.
What is ODPI-C? It is an open source library of C code that simplifies the use of common Oracle Call Interface (OCI) features for Oracle Database drivers and user applications. It sits on top of OCI and requires Oracle client libraries.
The 2.0.0 RC2 release notes are here. Along with bug fixes, you can see some defensive coding improvements, and some error message tweaks to help improve the user experience. These may look small but I know that by adding resilience, and by giving more information to users when things go wrong, the nicer user experience will help users solve problems faster.
I want to give a special shout out to all our testers. Testing is a never ending task, of course! Along with new ODPI-C functional tests in RC2, our Node.js node-oracledb and Python cx_Oracle testers have been busy creating and running functional and stress tests. (The latest version of node-oracledb & cx_Oracle use ODPI-C!) It's all looking good.
ODPI-C is heading fast towards a first 'Production' release, so follow our lead and test, test, test your own applications!
