  • Commented on DBD::Oracle Trial release.
    If this distribution contains daglem's pull request re DRCP and the others then the CHANGES file seems to be missing all of them. The tests pass for me with Oracle InstantClient 12.1.0.1 to Oracle 12.1.0.2. I'd love to see a...

    @kd Great stuff! And great seeing @mjevans around here as well!

    Minor nit: your choice of lower-than-latest-dev release version is somewhat suboptimal. A surprisingly large amount of pre-smokers operate over the moral equivalent of:

    I don't want to publicize it too much, but https://travis-ci.org/Perl5/DBIx-Class/jobs/390708515#L441-L462 ( DBIC is not the only user afaik )

    I took that as inspiration for https://travis-ci.org/ByteFoundryAU/DBD-Oracle

    Thanks Peter
