3     1. Fix issues with setting SQL Param values using SetAsString with Numeric types.
4     Scale is no longer ignored.
5    
6     2. Fix issues with setting SQL Param values using SetAsString with Date values
7     not in locale format but which are recognised by Firebird. Date values that
8     cannot be converted to a string using Pascal library are now passed through
9     to Firebird as Text Strings.
10    
11 tony 60 3. Lookup character set name by codepage amended to ensure that CP_UTF8 returns
12     UTF8 and not UNICODE_FSS.
13    
14     4. Charset ID problem. When using Firebird 3, with no default database character set
15     and a column has a non-default collation specified, an incorrect character set
16     id was being reported that could result in a 'division by zero' error when
17     used by IBX. This has now been fixed.
18    
19     5. Move GetCharsetName, CharSetID2CodePage, CodePage2CharSetID, CharSetName2CharSetID,
20     CharSetWidth from IFirebirdAPI to IAttachment. This is a better data model as
21     the character sets supported can be updated on a per database basis. That is
22     it is possible to add a (Firebird) user defined character set to a database.
23    
24     6. Add RegisterCharSet to IAttachment. This is used to register a user defined character
25     set supported by Firebird with the API.
26    
27 tony 61 7. Add missing isc_info_db_read_only to list of decoded Database Information items
28     in FBOutputBlock.pas and update test suite to include this item.
29 tony 60
30 tony 63 8. FB30Client: avoid always using "StartMultiple" when only a single database attachment.
31 tony 61
32 tony 68 9. Loading Windows fbclient.dll: when using the FIREBIRD variable to locate the client
33     library or finding it by disk location, the PATH environment variable is now also set to
34     include the FIREBIRD directory. This is to ensure that the correct dlls in the
35     firebird client library dependencies are loaded.
36 tony 63
37 tony 68 10. Testsuite: Ensure consistent UTF-8 output on Windows console.
38    
39     11. Testsuite: Update Windows script to include FPC 3.0.4 in search path.
40    
41     12. FB30Statement: Protect call to "Move" and avoid calling with a nil pointer
42    
43     13. FB30Statement: A check has been added to ensure that all SQL Parameters
44     have been given a value (including NULL). Previously, failing to set the
45     value of an SQL Parameter could give rise to unpredictable results or
46     an SQLDA error.
47    
48     14. FB30Statement/FB25Statement: Set SQLParam "modified" when string value set.
49    
50 tony 70 15. FBAttachment: Avoid string reference count error when processing an Ansistring
51     parameter in an array of const passed to IAttachment.OpenCursor, etc.
52 tony 68
53 tony 70 16. FBAttachment: Allow for WideString and UnicodeString parameters in an array
54     of const passed to IAttachment.OpenCursor, etc.
55

57 tony 56 FBINTF Change Log version (1.0-2) Sat, 04 Mar 2017 14:43:56 +0000
58 tony 47
59 tony 56 1. Change syntax to Mode Delphi
60    
61     2. Change all uses of string type to explicit AnsiString in order to ensure
62     compatibility between Delphi and FPC.
63    
64     3. Various syntax changes to ensure Delphi and FPC compilation including GUIDs
65     defined for each interface.
66    
67     4. Generics syntax variations for Delphi added
68    
69     5. PChar replaced with PByte expect where an actual string is being referenced,
70     where PAnsiChar is used instead.
71    
72     6. Review of type definitions in IBExternals to ensure Delphi compatibility
73    
74     7. Testsuite updated for Delphi
75    
76     FBINTF Change Log version (1.0-1) Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:17:57 +0000
77    
78 tony 47 1. Limit maximum Blob segment read/write to MaxuShort. Avoids data loss with
79     large blobs and the FB3 API.
80    
81     2. Update Event Handling algorithm to avoid looping due to recreation of the
82     event block.
83    
84     3. Avoid invalid XSQLDA error when the only parameter is updated to null
85    
86     4. Array Handling: fix problem with text arrays with character set none. When the
87     DB connection has a default character set (e.g. UTF8), an error is raised by
88     Firebird if the space allocated is not enough to allow for transliteration, even
89     though it is not required for character set none.
90    
91     5. IBUtils: List of reserved words brought up-to-date
92    
93     6. Add ISQL style performance statistics collection to IStatement
94    
95     7. Add IFirebirdAPI.CreateDatabase variant to allow execution of user provided
96     CREATE DATABASE statement.
97    
98     8. Update SQL Statement parsing to allow for Array Dimensions. That is so that the ':' in
99     an array dimension is not mistaken for a named parameter prefix.
100    
101     9. Trim function no longer applied to result of GetAsString for SQL_TEXT
102     when Character set is octets. Avoids loss of non printable characters at start of string.
103    
104     10. Add function GetPerfStatistics to IStatement. This returns ISQL like performance
105     statistics for the last action. Requires use of procedure IStatement.EnableStatistics
106     to enable stats gathering.
107    
108     11. API Version information added as constants to IB.pas
109    
110     12. BlobMetaData character set id should now be the same as that given by IColumnMetaData.GetCharSetID
111    
112     13. Firebird Character set "NONE" now interpreted as codepage CP_ACP.
