Welcome to version 2.0.3 of the Mini SQL database system. Even though the 2.0 series software has proven to be stable enough for the development of large applications, the development process is continual. Features are added and bugs are fixed as they are identified so please check our web site regularly for upates at http://www.Hughes.com.au/ This release includes the new mSQL documentation kit for 2.0. The documentation now includes a very comprehensive (i.e. 80+ pages) User Guide. The User Guide is included as a postscript file for printing on your laser printer. It is also included as an HTML document for those that do not have a postscript laser. Some of the formatting is lost during the conversion to HTML so the postscript version is certainly the best to use if you can. The User Guide is located in the doc directory of the distribution. Please read also the terms and confditions under which this software can be used ! mSQL LICENSING
