Ingres Ruby driver updated – version 1.4.1

Last week I pushed out a minor update for the Ingres Ruby driver to address issues seen in a soon to be published demo (more about that in another post). The changes in this new release are as follows:

  • Fix #656 – getProcedureName() returns a non-NULL terminated procedure name
  • Fix #653 – Update dynamically for each release
  • Fix #651 – Add support for building a Ruby Gem
  • Fix #555 – SEGV when fetcing LOB data
  • Fix #565 – Compilation errors with Redhat ES 5.4 (x86-64)

This new release can be obtained from or via one of the following links:

Alternatively you can checkout this release from our external source code repository:
