IBProvider v5.25 release. Changing of CHAR support

CHAR type support

This release changes default value of initialization property «truncate_char». Now it is false.

This means that now the provider will return data with type CHAR as is, without truncating terminal spaces/zeros.

The new behavior simplifies the configuration of a linked MSSQL server and allows the correct handling of fixed-length binary data.

You can revert the old provider behavior by specifying «truncate_char=true» in the connection string.

Error correction

Fixed translation of ODBC-functions DAYNAME, MONTHNAME into DECODE-based expressions. In some cases, IBProvider could generate incorrect SQL.
