Python Tabular Databases SIG: Status

The Database topic guide contains up-to-date information on database modules for Python.

April 7, 1999: Revision 2.0 of the Database API specification has been issued as PEP 249.

Version 1.0 of the spec is still available as PEP 248, and the topic guide lists modules that comply with it.

With the 2.0 revision of the spec completed, possible future directions and discussions may focus on refinements of the specification and implementations for new databases. Object-oriented databases (OODBs) are also a possible subject of discussion.
