Libgda/Libgnomedb 3.1.2 released

I'm pleased to annouce that the version 3.1.2 of
libgda/libgnomedb has been released.

Libgda/libgnomedb are a complete framewok for developing database-oriented
applications, and actually allow access to PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, Sybase,
SQLite, FireBird/Interbase, IBM DB2, mSQL and MS SQL server, as well as
MS Access and xBase files and ODBC data sources.

libgda/libgnomedb are part of the GNOME Office application suite, providing
database access for many features in both Gnumeric and Abiword.
