SQL has initial support for triggers, have to fill in the details arround
the release as it will get some more support soon.

Full support for local/global temporaries (which was a lot of 
 changes in the transaction layer, net effect should be faster

Session variable support using @varname.

Indeed this is besides bug fixes / stability
	(an important bug in primary key constraints was fixed)

I'd like to assess the stability the comming weeks using dots and possibly
some other test frameworks.
