    1111== Status == 
    1212 
    13 D DBI has been around for a while now, but most of the time in a hiatus / maintance mode. This has led to some bitrot, and so a lot that used to work probably doesn't as it is presented in trunk. Work to get D DBI back to former glory and beyond has started though, and this time with certain commercial interests in the back
     13After D DBI was around for quite a while, work started in the summer of 2008 improve and update, especially at the lower levels to make the API nicer to use

    15 The number of available backends may suffer due to this work, at least initially - as the functionality in the revised interfaces will be larger. Depending somewhat on contributions from others, the likely prioritization of backends will be Mysql, Sqlite and PostreSQL - beyond that contributions is a necessity. It is possible that such contributions can be in the form of drivers aka those found for JDBC, though - if plans for dynamic loading of functionality/plugins are properly implemented

Currently Mysql support is in, and Sqlite well on its way

    1919''Update 24th of January, 2009: I have a fork of DDBI at github that has a new API.  The Mysql implementation seems pretty stable in my tests.  Sqlite has a lot of work on it but is not usable yet.  Check it out at http://github.com/aaronc/ddbi/.  Check out the API docs at http://aaronc.github.com/ddbi - Aaron Craelius''
