{improvements on the API side}

I don't know about API changes in SQL.  I think the XQuery people have.
The only thing that comes close IMO is the change to have every language
(mil, sql, xquery) work on the same port on the server: 50000.

- PHP: new and improved, now without crashes!  (PostgreSQL compatible)
- JDBC: no changes (that I know of)
- Authorisation: would like my patches to get into the M5 release, but I
  cannot figure out how to do some little things, hence upon restart of
  the server authorisation doesn't work any more.

Not much.  Just bugfixes and improved stability for SQL.  The focus is
for the XQuery people to define their new features.
