Recently I've been running into more issues with ODBC not properly handling UTF-8 and blob data across the various databases that Flourish supports. I'm very strongly considering dropping ODBC support due to the fact that:
CURRENT_TIMESTAMPisn't implemented for Oracle when using ODBC
pdo_odbcdriver in PHP 5.3 returns seemingly random data from an MSSQL blob column
Does anyone currently use an ODBC connection with fDatabase?
7/31/10 - As of revision 879, ODBC support is no longer provided in any of Flourish's database classes. ODBC support was removed since it was holding back perfect UTF-8 support, caused stability issues on some servers and did not appear to be used by anyone.
