Subject text of release announcement for
Date Tue, 16 Apr 2013 14:51:31 GMT
Here's what I have so far. Please help me improve this. I plan to 
announce the release in the next day or two.



Derby contains the following new features:

system procedure for invalidating stored prepared statements when you 
think that your metadata queries or triggers are misbehaving--for 
example if they throw a NoSuchMethodError on execution. See the section 
on this new system procedure in the Derby Reference Manual.
     * Unencrypting databases - Encryption can be turned off on existing 
databases. See the section on the decryptDatabase attribute in the Derby 
Reference Manual.
     * Small device profile - Derby runs on the small CP2 profile of Java 8.
     * JDBC 4.2 - Derby supports the Java 8 enhancements to JDBC.
     * User-defined aggregates - Applications can create their own 
aggregate operators. See the "CREATE DERBY AGGREGATE" section in the 
Derby Reference Manual.
     * Varargs routines - SQL routines can be bound to user-written Java 
methods which have variable length argument lists.
     * Optional tools - Derby has new, optional tools to support data 
migration and metadata queries. See the "Optional tools" section in the 
Derby Tools and Utilities Guide.

In addition, Derby contains many bug, security, and 
documentation fixes.

Please try out this new release.
