ODB API 0.16.0 has been released on 18th of November 2016.

This version brings a fix for Python API useful in programs that open large amount of files.

Also, Python API has been stabilized with a final change: function connect accepts a string with a file name, or, more generally, a data descriptor (for example a RETRIEVE request), instead of a DDL (Data Definition Language, for example: CREATE TABLE statement). A DDL can be executed with the execute method of the cursor object, see examples, just like SELECT or any other SQL statement. The parameter of connect can also be an empty string, in this case all subsequent SQL statements have to refer to file / data descriptors or tables explicitly.

This version also introduces two new SQL aggregate functions: first and last.
