DBD::Oracle version 1.57_00 is on its way to CPAN. This release is small, but should make some Win32 users happy:
DBD::Oracle v1.54 is on its way to CPAN. In this iteration, no new feature, but a large amount of bug fixes.
After a little bit more than two weeks of soaking without any issues (yay!), version 1.45_00 of DBD::Oracle has been promoted to general use as v1.46. And because some contributors have been very busy in the meantime, the next trial version, v1.47_00, is also already on its way to CPAN. This new version offers a few bug fixes (more details in the changelog excerpt below), as well as a rework of the platform-specific troubleshooting guides as POD documents. As usual, it’ll be left around for a minimum of two weeks before it gets promoted to v1.48. Happy upgrade!
A new trial version of DBD::Oracle has been churned out. This release is mostly about Martin J. Evans going all ninjawesome on minor bug fixes, as well as paving the way for an upcoming refactoring / speed boost of ora_verbose. As usual, the new version will be soaked for at least 2 weeks before it will turn into its fit-for-general-consumption v1.46 incarnation. Testers, please give this baby a whirl. The full changelog follows for the curious minded.
A new trial version of DBD::Oracle is on CPAN. The meat of this release is the awesome work Martin Evans did in the murky core of the beast. He explains it better, but basically his magic results in a much faster DBD::Oracle on thread-enabled perls. This being said, the changes he did are significant (2.3K lines changed according to Git), and we would be very grateful of anybody finding the time to try and install that trial version before it goes live

11gR2, lib32 directory no longer exists and 32 bit libraries are no longer provided. Which means that there is no way to use 32 bit Perl to connect to Oracle. BTW. This applies to other 32 bit clients as well. I’ve heard that SAP can’t support 11gR2 for a similar reason. What do we do? Here are the options.
Sorry, no funny nick name for version 1.27 but here is the scoop on it anyway. This version removes ‘PERL_POLLUTE’ and adds in PL_ so it will be fully compatible with Perl 5.13. So in a nutshell 1.27 is a single issue maintenance release.
We settled down to some very interesting talks, the highlight for me being Tim Bunce’s talk on using Devel::NYTProf to Optimize your code. The rest of the day was dedicated in my opinion, to the future of DBs in with Nelson Ferraz giving an excellent presentation of his concepts for using Perl as to glue for a Data Warehouse application. Next on my agenda, Martin Berends reports on the present state of Perl 6 and interfaces database. Martin was quickly followed by Tim Bunce again who presented his proposal for the new Perl 6′s DBDI.
