09 October 2011: Recent updates at www.sypron.nl

I did not manage to update my web site in September.
This was partly due to the Techwave conference which is
always a very intense affair for Sybase staff, and partly
because I'm spending every free minute working on a
new quick reference guide -- for Sybase IQ.
Yes, many folks have asked me to publish an IQ quickref,
and after working on it for more than 2 years, I'm
confident it will be ready before the end of 2011.
I will announce more specifics in the coming weeks; keep
an eye on http://www.sypron.nl/iqqr.

This month's quiz question is about using SHA-256 in ASE,
even though ASE doesn't support this hashing algorithm...

ASE 15.7 was released on September 28th. The Developer's Edition
and Express Edition for 15.7 are also available now -- updated
links to these editions are below:

If you missed September's quiz question (I was kinda
busy with other things, see above), then try the
ASE Quiz Question Randomizer which randomly pulls
up a question from the past 10 years:
