Is there a major difference between these 2 versions?
The topics i see discussed on here refer to 2.1.2 but on the Syabse
website i find 2.5.

I guess a lot of people are used to seeing a Changelog file. It would
be nice to see a Changelog file :) For example, here is part of the
"CHANGES" file from DBD::Sybase:

$Id: CHANGES,v 1.81 2008/08/31 12:08:17 mpeppler Exp $

Release 1.09

Behavior change: A new connection level attribute
(syb_disconnect_in_child)
has been added to allow automatical handling of InactiveDestroy across
forks. By default in 1.09 a connection will NOT get closed if the
process
ID of the process that is exiting is not the same as the PID of the
process that created the connection.
Detect ASE error 5702 (The server is terminating this process) as a
fatal
error for the connection.

Bug Fixes

645 - Spurious COMMIT calls sent to the dataserver during the
login/connect calls.
628 - Increase size of Kerberos Principal string buffer
627 - Spurious sigset_t declaration.

Release 1.08

Detect missing libblk.a library, and disable the BLK api calls
if necessary.
Added code to force dlopen() to use RTLD_GLOBAL.
Corrected ct_option() functionality detection.
Fixed incorrect handling of bind_params() (Thanks to Tim Bunce).
Added serverType DSN parameter.
Added tds_keepalive DSN parameter.
Fixed incorrect handling of multiple result sets with DBI
1.53 and later.
Re-wrote $dbh->ping() in C, it's now four times faster.
Allow automated build without prompts.
Improved nsql().
Added corrected handling of DATE and TIME values (ASE 12.5.2 and later).
Added handling of UNSIGNED INT and BIGINT (ASE 15 and later).
Added PERL_NO_GET_CONTEXT #define.

Bug Fixes

624 - Empty strings incorrectly passed as NULL.
616 - Spurious error message when the login request times out.
614 - Documentation improvement for syb_xxx methods.
610 - Segfault when using signals with the threaded libraries and
