Structures_DataGrid 0.8.0 released

Saturday, December 16th, 2006

Today Olivier and I have “flooded” PEAR with new releases of Structures_DataGrid and its 19 subpackages. The reason for releasing all packages was a license change from PHP License 2.0 to New BSD license which is more flexible and compatible to other open source licenses.

The new major feature of the new release is streaming support. Until this release, it was impossible to use Structures_DataGrid for converting a huge database table into, for example, a CSV file. We offer now the possibility to fetch the data in chunks of, by default, 500 records from the database and to write these records into the CSV file, followed by the next chunk of 500 records, and so on.
