Allegro Oracle Direct Connect and DOM Level 1 For ACL

Franz has released a new way to talk to Oracle databases for ACl 6.2 (and ACL 7.0 beta).

Allegro Oracle Direct Connect is a new Oracle database (version 8 and higher) interface available in Allegro CL. The API is similar to the Allegro ODBC interface (see aodbc.htm) and the Allegro MySQL Direct interface (see mysql.htm) but it is specialized for Oracle. To use the interface, you must have the Oracle C Interface libraries. An ODBC library is not necessary.

They've also added DOM Level 1 support.

As noted, Allegro CL supports the Core part of DOM only. This DOM Level 1 implementation passes 155 key tests from the W3.org DOM conformance test suite. These tests were translated from the javascript source.

one wonders why they felt compelled to do this.

Hmm, 155 "key" tests?
So what about the other half of the test suite?
