Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Derby released
Date Wed, 15 Dec 2010 14:12:23 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:

     * Definer's rights - Procedures and functions can now run with 
their creators' privileges, rather than with the current user's privileges.
     * BOOLEAN data type - Boolean is now a legal data type for columns, 
routine arguments, and function return values.
     * Table truncation - A new TRUNCATE TABLE command drops all rows in 
a table quickly.
     * Query plan browsing - A new PlanExporter tool helps developers 
visualize query plans better.
     * Unicode database names - Remote clients can now use database 
names which include Unicode characters outside the ASCII codeset.

In addition, Derby contains many bug and documentation fixes.

Please try out this new release.
