Specification changes

### License was changed to 2-clause BSD-style license.

The former license was same with old ruby (<= 1.9.2) license.

### Oracle object type's DATE field type

Ruby-oci8 had returned a DateTime object when Oracle object type's DATE
field type was accessed. Now it returns a Time object.
