What is new?

1. Driver for Oracle

2. getFieldValueMB is deprecated. Now there is the instance declaration:

instance SqlBind a => SqlBind (Maybe a)

It allows to use getFieldValue instead of getFieldValueMB.
Thanks to Frederik Eaton for this idea.

3. Database.HSQL.SQLite is renamed to Database.HSQL.SQLite2. The trouble
was that with Hugs for each module with FFI is generated an extra .dll/.so
library. In this case the library is SQLite.dll which on Windows overlaps
with the name of the real sqlite.dll library.
