[gnome-db] Libgda 4.1.7

I'm pleased to announce version 4.1.7 of Libgda: a beta version of the
upcomping 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)
* features several tools: an SQL console application (like mysql, psql
or sqlite3 consoles), a graphical database browser, and a control
* 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 4.1.6
 - new provider for Oracle Berkeley DB's SQL frontend (which has the
same API as sqlite)

PostgreSQL at the moment)
 - added a new GDA_CONNECTION_OPTIONS_THREAD_ISOLATED connection option
 - better display invalid values in form and grid widgets
 - Lots of GObject introspection annotations added
 - Better MacOSX support: binary relocation corrections, bundle making
   script for the GdaBrowser
 - GdaSqlBuilder API improvements

 - Renamed configure.in to configure.ac
 - Corrections in the Gda-Sql tool regarding username and password
 - Misc. corrections: connection locking issues, honor the
   GDA_EASY_CREATE_TABLE_UNIQUE_FLAG flag, some optimizations

 * 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.
