I was hoping we would not have to write sad blog entries anymore, at least in
a long time, but just read about Mark’s passing away :-( I did never meet him
in person, and just talked a few times with him on IRC, email, but still am
really sorry for his friends and family.

I hope this is the last entry of this kind I have to write ever.


Lots of patches from Jon to add missing stuff to the ODBC provider, which was
a bit abandoned. Very nice to have this set of patches coming in, to add
a new fully-supported provider.
