GNOME-DB 0.1.0 released!

GNOME-DB 0.1.0 (a.k.a. olympius) has been released.

 GNOME-DB is a complete framewok for developing database-oriented
 applications, and actually allows access to PostgreSQL, MySQL,
 Oracle and ODBC data sources. Apart from this development framework,
 it also includes several applications and utilities which make it
 quite suitable for many database-related taks.
 This new release is the long-awaited 0.1.x, and includes:

 * the GNOME and non-GNOME parts have been separated. This results in
   modules: libgda, which is the data-access framework, and which is now
   almost GNOME-independent, and gnome-db, which continues to be the
   GNOME specific part, that is, a frontend to libgda.
 * as part of the separation, the GNOME-specific part has started its
   GNOMEification, making full use of the GNOME technologies, such as
   GConf, Bonobo, etc. Plans are on integrating with GNOME Office apps.
 * PostgreSQL provider: the PostgreSQL provider has been fixed to be
   to work with both PostgreSQL 6.x and 7.x, where major changes were
   in the dictionary tables. Thus, both servers can be accessed through
   an unique binary.
 * Full GConf support: all gnome_config* API calls have been removed in
   favor of GConf, the new GNOME configuration system.
 * gda-test program, which lets you test your libgda configuration (in
   tarball only).

 GNOME-DB is now a GNOME-next-generation application, and makes use of
 latest GNOME developments, so you will need a huge list of packages in
 your system to make it work. A recent version of GNOME (Helix GNOME) is
 suggested. Apart from this, you'll need OAF (0.5.x), Bonobo (0.18.x),
 GtkHTML (0.6.x), GConf (0.6.x). Note that some latest versions of these
 packages may not be compatible. Mainly, GConf-0.9.x and Bonobo > 0.18.x
 (that is, the CVS version).
