Whats up with DB2 V9.7

While I am still playing with Db2 V9.7, I found this link to be quench the thirst for the time being :

DB2 V9.7 new features

DB2 V9.7 is loaded with some real cool features, some of them are :

1. Intelligent compression of Indexes and temporary tablespaces

2. Native support for PL/SQL and Oracle SQL

3. The long awaited TRUNCATE command

4 . Created temporary tables are now allowed, rather than only declared temporary table.

5. Schema changes without taking downtime.

There are many other features, but these are the top 5 I like to boast about. Of which, the first two is my favorite. I will in another post explain it a bit further.
