We are pleased to announce a new release of Takusen. There are a large
number of changes and bug-fixes:
 - Oracle support for processing cursors returned from procedure calls
 - withContinuedSession supports connection reuse (e.g. for persistent
connections and connection pooling)
 - new README file with useful information about getting started with Takusen
 - new UTF8 en/de-coder (the old one was buggy)
 - PostgreSQL support for CalendarTime
 - improved Cabal Setup.hs script, which does a better job of
modifying the installation to reflect installed DBMS's. This gives
good ghci support (PostgreSQL users on Windows have a small extra
 - prepared statement API requires that users distinguish between
queries and DML

Our long-term plans are the same as ever:
 - large objects
 - ODBC and MS Sql Server backends
