Updates from upstream?   Honestly I haven't looked recently.  I used
to think libdbi was the right stuff to use, but others seemed to want
to go with libgda instead.  What with them removing GdaQuery and all
I kind of think we should just drop GDA and go back to DBI like I
originally proposed years ago.  But I'm not doing the work so I
really don't have tons of influence.
