node-oracledb 2.0 is now production on

The key user change in node-oracledb 2.0 is the introduction of pre-built binaries, removing the installation pain felt particularly by Windows users.

Incremental changes include:

  - Improved data type support.

  - Improved query handling and performance.

Other enhancements and bug fixes also landed.

node-oracledb 2.0 is the first node-oracledb release to use the ODPI-C abstraction layer, which is also used by Python's cx_Oracle API, as well as 3rd party APIs for other languages.
