ok, I'll work on this soon.

well, I plan to have an integrated help system. To be included in the
front end. But I'm sorry it does not work very well. But I'll work on it

this part also needs some fixes. Thanks for noting them

hmm, strange. I'll have a look also at that code. It happened sometimes
to me, but it stopped some time ago.

with the ones you've got it's ok. The problem is one I found the other
day which I was not sure if it was included in the 0.2.1 release. So
please, get sources from CVS and compile them. I'll make a release in a
couple of days.

we plan to change the GnomeDbGrid widget to use the etable widget. But,
well, about updatable recordsets, we had a discussion about them some
time ago (look in the archives). If you can add something to the
discussion (== a solution) it will be welcome.

I've been quite busy lately, so I haven't made much progress, but I'll fix all

this next century :)
