I have released a new development release (1.16_1) od DBD::ODBC this
morning. It includes some bug fixes and a few new features - a summary
below. Please let me know if you experience any problems with this release.

Fixed bug in odbc_cancel which was checking the ACTIVE flag was on
before calling SQLCancel. Non-select statements can also be cancelled
so this was wrong. Thanks to Dean Arnold for spotting.

Minor changes to test 01base to attempt to catch install_driver
failing, report it as a fail and skip other tests.

Fixed bug reported by James K. Lowden with asynchronous mode and
SQLParamData where the code was not expecting SQL_STILL_EXECUTING and
did not handle it

Added odbc_putdata_start attribute to determine when to start using
SQLPutData on lobs.

Fixed bug in lob inserts where decimal_digits was being set to the
size of the bound lob unnecessarily.

Minor change to connect/login code to delete driver-specific attributes
passed to connect so they do not have to be processed again when DBI
calls STORE with them.

New 12blob.t test.

A lot of code tidy up but not expecting any real benefit or detriment
when using DBD::ODBC.

Fixed retrieving [n]varchar(max) columns which were only returning 1
byte - thanks to Fumiaki Yoshimatsu and perl monks for finding it.
