Libgda 4.1.1 released

I'm pleased to announce version 4.1.1 of Libgda, a 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
* optionnally includes some graphical widgets (based on GTK+) for data bound representations
  and some graphical tools

Changes from 4.1.0
 - it is now possible to use a system installed SQLite, and now uses
   SQLite 3.6.17 if embedded
 - new Oracle driver (provider)
 - improved MySQL and PostgreSQL drivers (providers)
 - console program improvements
 - new UI extension based on GTK+
 - new program to manage data sources graphically
 - new program to "browse" a database's schema
 - improved documentation
 - better handle SQL identifiers
 - Lots of corrections and small improvements
 - Translations:
        - es (Jorge Gonzalez)
        - nb (Kjartan Maraas)
        - sv (Daniel Nylander)
        - de (Mario Blättermann)
        - it (Marco Ciampa)

* 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
See the page for additionnal information about choosing
between Libgda and SQLite when you need a database API.
