What we're busy with?

Since there is a vacations season, last weeks we've been working mainly on performance (I promised we'll spend some time on this some day). And I'm glad to announce we've reached almost invincible level:
- We beat plain SqlClient on insertion test by about 15%. Seems almost impossible, yes? Well, but this is the effect of our batching implementation. Later I'll uncover all the details.
- Update test is also quite close to SqlClient mark.
- Materialization is one more area where we've got really good progress. No any exact numbers here, since we're working on it now.

The new, ultra high-speed DO bolide will be shown by the end of this week.
