[gnome-db] Libgda and Libgnomedb 3.99.6

I'm pleased to announce the version 3.99.6 of Libgda and Libgnomedb.

Important note: Libgda's API is now declared stable for the next V4 release (subsequent 3.99.X releases will concentrate only on bug fixes), Libgnomedb's API will continue to change before a stable 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

Libgnomedb mainly features some GTK+ based data bound widgets using Libgda for data access.

Changes for this version of Libgda:
 - A few API improvements
 - MySQL provider improvements (Carlos Savoretti)
 - Performances improvements, and memory leaks removal
 - use the G_TYPE_GTYPE type instead of ulong
 - better control of exported symbols in the final library and providers
 - better binreloc behaviour in 64 bits
 - use custom marshallers for GError, GType and GValue in signals (bug #555905)
 - bug fixes: #541991, #546339, #555905, #556258, #556327, #556960, #529794 (Johannes Schmid,
   Massimo Cora', Vivien Malerba)
