[gnome-db] Libgda 4.1.5

I'm pleased to announce version 4.1.5 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

 * 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.
