Libgda 4.1.2 released

I'm pleased to announce version 4.1.2 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)
* 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 4.1.1
 - the GdaBrowser application now supports query execution, and is more
   polished and stable
 - Lots of bug fixes mainly related to threads usage and the UI extension
 - Translations:
        - de (Mario Blättermann)
        - eu (Inaki Larranaga Murgoitio)
        - pt_BR (Rodolfo Ribeiro Gomes)
        - fr (Claude Paroz)

 * 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
