I am pleased to announce the HSQL library version 1.6. The HSQL is a
simple library, which provides interface to multiple databases. MySQL,
PostgreSQL, ODBC, SQLite and MSI (new) are currently supported.
What is new? 
1. HSQL is fully Cabalized.

2. Windows users don't need to have cygwin in order to build HSQL. The
old build system was using ./configure script which is replaced with
hooks in ./Setup.lhs script.

3. HSQL is split into multiple Cabal packages. There is one common
package 'hsql' and multiple database specific packages: hsql-odbc,
hsql-postgresql, hsql-mysql, hsql-sqlite, hsql-sqlite3, hsql-msi

4. There are two new database frontends: SQLite3 and MSI. The SQLite3
frontend is for SQLite version 3.0 and above. The old SQLite frontend
still exists. MSI is fontend to Microsoft Installer database. Each
.msi package is a relational database which you can query and modify
using HSQL.
