Yum upgrade for the win! I much prefer that to an anaconda upgrade, especially if you'll have to resolve some dependencies manually either way.

Finally committed my shared_ptr work to libstdc++, so GCC 4.3 will have a std::shared_ptr that corresponds to the current C++ Working Draft, N2461.

I've also been doing some fixes for mysql++. I maintain the mysqlcppapi fork started by murrayc when mysql++ was run by an idiot, but that fork is no longer actively maintained and is no longer necessary because mysql++ is well-managed now. If I'm going to deprecate mysqlcppapi and recommend that people use mysql++ instead I want to make sure it's of a suitable standard, so I've been improving exception-safety, reference-counting and memory-management.
