Since I retired from the development of GNOME-DB (mostly because I haven’t used a database for years) and left Vivien the liberty to do what he wanted, the project has been improving over time, and with the latest 2.0 beta release the libraries are in a very good shape. Lots of missing features have been added, API has been greatly improved, which makes it suitable for all kinds of application developers. So expect some more DB-love (GNOME Office, Glom, etc) in your GNOME desktops in the upcoming release cycles.

libgda/libgnomedb 1.3.3

Yesterday I released libgda and libgnomedb 1.3.3, few days after 1.3.2 because of some building problems, introduced because I did the libgnomedb 1.3.2 tarball a few days after having done libgda 1.3.2, and there were changes in libgnomedb CVS that needed a newer libgda. This now should be fixed, so get it and enjoy it.

Here is a screenshot of the new database browser, which lets you easily browse your databases.



Just released
libgda/libgnomedb 1.3.2, another step forward in the route to 2.0. Now that all of
libmergeant has been integrated into libgnomedb, Vivien (the man doing all the
work) is now improving the API and adding lots of new features, like creation of
databases (something we have missed since the beginning) from the GUI, automatic forms
and an ever improving data dictionary.
