Two New Versions of the Perl DBD::DB2 Driver Released

Noticed today that there have been two new versions of the DB2 driver
released over the last week.   This is the first time IBM has released an
update since October 2001, so to give us two releases in a week is a bit
much to cope with <G> !!!

0.77 fixes a number of problems, including one which I reported to IBM (and
helped to produce a fix for) involving memory leaks.

0.78 adds some new functionality, for C-style comments in SQL (still to look
and see what this exactly means) !!!
