RDBI is yet-another database access library, currently in release
candidate. It aims to provide a consistent interface to many lower
level databases. At least initially, it intends to provide a
compelling replacement to Ruby/DBI, of which current maintainers are
fed up with. for documentation and more information about
the library.

This release candidate, RC2, is released as 0.9.1 and patch levels will
be incremented as we approach 1.0, which will be the final initial
release of RDBI.

In this RC there are some cleanups of the Result API, a new Cursor
management API for drivers, and significant performance improvements.

This release also marks our first database driver maintained outside of
the project, by Shane Emmons. You can find it as 'rdbi-driver-odbc' or
on github at

RDBI is released as several parts as gems on Installing
rdbi + a database driver will take care of most of it:

* typelib is a filter chaining system intended to assist with type
* epoxy is a database agnostic binding layer.
* rdbi is the core component.
* rdbi-dbrc is a configuration layer.
* rdbi-driver-postgresql is a PostgreSQL driver.
* rdbi-driver-mysql is a MySQL driver.
* rdbi-driver-sqlite3 is a SQLite3 driver.
* rdbi-result-driver-json is a result driver (see docs) that
yields json directly from results. YAML, Struct, and Array
result drivers come included with RDBI's core.
