Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Derby released
Date Mon, 02 May 2011 13:23:11 GMT
The Apache Derby project is pleased to announce feature release

Apache Derby is a subproject of the Apache DB project. Derby is a pure 
Java relational database engine which conforms to the ISO/ANSI SQL and 
JDBC standards. Derby aims to be easy for developers and end-users to 
work with.

Derby can be obtained from the Derby download site:


Derby contains the following new features:

     * JDBC 4.1 - Derby's JDBC drivers support the new Java 7 methods on 
the java.sql and javax.sql  interfaces.
     * Automatic calculation of index statistics - Derby automatically 
refreshes statistics to help it pick better query plans.
     * Improved interrupt handling - Interrupting connection threads no 
longer crashes the Derby engine.
     * MAX optimization - On indexed tables, MAX queries run faster in 
more cases.
     * XML operator portability - The xmlparse and xmlserialize 
operators work out-of-the-box on more platforms.

In addition, Derby contains many bug and documentation fixes.

Please try out this new release.
