The MonetDB team at CWI/MonetDB BV is pleased to announce the
Oct2012 feature release of the MonetDB suite of programs.

More information about MonetDB can be found on our website at
<http://www.monetdb.org/>.

For details on this release, please see the release notes at
<http://www.monetdb.org/Downloads/ReleaseNotes>.

As usual, the download location is <http://dev.monetdb.org/downloads/>.

Due to a packaging problem on Debian and Ubuntu, no binary packages for
these systems exist.  We apologise for the inconvenience.  We expect
this problem to be resolved by the Oct2012-SP1 release.


   Oct 2012 feature release
   Build Environment   * Removed --enable-noexpand configure option.
   Java Module         * Fixed problem with PreparedStatements and setXXX()
                         methods using column numbers instead of names, bug
                         #3158
   Client Package      * mclient now accepts URIs as database to connect to.
                       * all strings returned by python2 are unicode, removed
                         use_unicode option
                       * python2 and 3 type convertion speed improvements
                       * python2 uses new style objects now (bug #3104)
                       * split python2 and python3
   MonetDB5 Server     * Removed module attach since it wasn't used or even
                         tested.
                       * The MAL-to-C Compiler (mcc) was removed. The code
                         wasn't tested and most likely non-functional.
   Merovingian         * Fixed problem where monetdbd would refuse to startup
                         when discovery was set to false, bug #3155

                         code wasn't tested and most likely non-functional.
                       * BAT-of-BATs is no longer allowed. It was already not
                         allowed to make these types of BATs persistent, but
                         now they can't be created at all anymore.
   Bug Fixes           * 3084: Timestamp arithmetic very slow (especially on
                         Windows)
                       * 3125: Python tests fail after recent Python API
                         changes
                       * 3155: Provide an option for setting discovery to
                         false
