MySQL++ was created by Kevin Atkinson during 1998. From version 1.0
(released in June 1999) through 1.7.9 (May 2001), the primary maintainer
was Sinisa Milivojevic <email@example.com>. Neither Kevin nor Sinisa
are currently involved in MySQL++ development. The current maintainer
is Warren Young <firstname.lastname@example.org>, starting with version 1.7.10 in
August of 2004.
For a fuller account of the library's history, see the first chapter
of the user manual. For the nitty-gritty details, see the ChangeLog
in the root package directory. ChangeLog items since 1.7.9 that
aren't attributed to anyone else were done by Warren Young.
Other contributors of note since 1.7.10:
Chris Frey <email@example.com>: Lots of GCC warning fixes for
the bleeding-edge compiler versions, and Gentoo ebuild support.
Also, if there were a "steering committee" for MySQL++, he'd be
Totte Karlsson <firstname.lastname@example.org>: Primary force behind Borland
C++ Builder support.
Mark Meredino <Mark_Merendino@cnt.com>: Several fixes and
additions, including a lot of work on Microsoft Visual C++
compatibility, and discoveries made while spelunking in the
Evan Wies <email@example.com>: Contributed several C++ code
Arnon Jalon <Arnon.Jalon@247RealMedia.com>: Added the multi-query
result set handling features, and multiquery example to demonstrate
Here are the personal credits from the old 1.7.9 documentation,
apparently written by Kevin Atkinson:
Chris Halverson - For helping me get it to compile under Solaris.
Fredric Fredricson - For a long talk about automatic conversions.
Michael Widenius - MySQL developer who has been very supportive of
Paul J. Lucas - For the original idea of treating the query object
like a stream.
Scott Barron - For helping me with the shared libraries.
Jools Enticknap - For giving me the Template Queries idea.
M. S. Sriram - For a detailed dission of how the Template Queries
should be implemented, the suggestion to throw exceptions on bad
queries, and the idea of having a back-end independent query
object (ie SQLQuery).
Sinisa Milivojevic - For becoming the new offical maintainer.
D. Hawkins and E. Loic for their autoconf + automake contribution.
See the ChangeLog for further credits, and details about the differences
between the many versions of this library.
Please do not email any of these people with general questions about
MySQL++. All of us who are still active in MySQL++ development read the
mailing list, so questions sent there do get to us:
The mailing list is superior to private email because the answers are
archived for future questioners to find, and because you are likely to
get answers from more people.
