Subject: [gnome-db] Libgda 4.1.1 released
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.gnome.db
Date: Tuesday 25th August 2009 07:15:46 UTC (over 7 years ago)
I'm pleased to announce version 4.1.1 of Libgda, a development version
which
will lead to a 4.2 release.

Short description:
------------------------
Libgda is a (relatively small) database access library:
* a wrapper like ODBC but with more features to access several database
engines
* a general data model to use CVS or XML files
* a meta data extractor (to know all about database objects in a comman
way)
* comes with an SQL console application (like mysql, psql or sqlite3
consoles)
* relies on GLib, coded in C, its API is easy to use
* optionnally includes some graphical widgets (based on GTK+) for data
bound
representations
  and some graphical tools

Changes from 4.1.0
--------------------------
 - it is now possible to use a system installed SQLite, and now uses
   SQLite 3.6.17 if embedded
 - new Oracle driver (provider)
 - improved MySQL and PostgreSQL drivers (providers)
 - console program improvements
 - new UI extension based on GTK+
 - new program to manage data sources graphically
 - new program to "browse" a database's schema
 - improved documentation
 - better handle SQL identifiers
 - Lots of corrections and small improvements
 - Translations:
        - es (Jorge Gonzalez)
        - nb (Kjartan Maraas)
        - sv (Daniel Nylander)
        - de (Mario Bl├Ąttermann)
        - it (Marco Ciampa)

Notes:
--------
 * This is unstable development release. While it has had
  a bit of testing, there are certainly plenty of bugs
  remaining to be found. This release should not be used
  in production.

 * Installing this version will overwrite your existing
  copy of Libgda 4. If you have problems, you'll need to
  reinstall it.

 * Libgda 4.2 will be source and binary compatible with
  the 4.0 series.

 * Bugs should be reported to http://bugzilla.gnome.org.

See the http://live.gnome.org/ChooseLibgdaSQLite
page for additionnal
information about choosing
between Libgda and SQLite when you need a database API.
