Two New Versions of the Perl DBD::DB2 Driver Released

P: n/a
Noticed today that there have been two new versions of the DB2 driver
released over the last week.¬*¬*¬*This¬*is¬*the¬*first¬*time¬*IBM¬*has¬*r eleased¬*an
update since October 2001, so to give us two releases in a week is a bit
much to cope with <G> !!!

0.77 fixes a number of problems, including one which I reported to IBM (and
helped to produce a fix for) involving memory leaks.

0.78 adds some new functionality, for C-style comments in SQL (still to look
and see what this exactly means) !!!
