[gnome-db] Libgda 4.1.0 released

I'm pleased to announce version 4.1.0 of Libgda, which is the first 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

Changes from 4.0.2
 - API and ABI compatible with 4.0.x versions
 - new API to execute statement asynchronously
 - new API to build DML (SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE) statements
   the easy way
 - new flag to open a connection in a sub thread, to be able to use
   a connection from several threads, even if the connection does not support it
 - the GdaMetaStore object is now thread safe
 - new API to represent data organized as trees
 - new API to execute a single statement several times, each execution with
   different parameters' values
 - documentation and examples improvements
 - bug fixes
 - Translations:

Tarballs are available at http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/libgda/4.1
Pease note that Win32 archives are also available at http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/binaries/win32/


* 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.
