libgda/libgnomedb/gnome-db 0.8.190

libgda/libgnomedb/gnome-db 0.8.190 have been released.

libgda/libgnomedb are a complete framewok for developing
database-oriented applications, and actually allow access to PostgreSQL,
MySQL, Oracle, Sybase, SQLite and ODBC data sources.
gnome-db is a set of visual applications that let you access from a nice
UI all the features provided in libgda/libgnomedb.

This is a big step forward for libgda, which has seen all its CORBA
dependencies removed, resulting in a tiny library with a few
dependencies (glib/libxml) offering a lot of power (data access to many
different unrelated data sources). This has been done following the
desires of a lot of potential libgda users (Mono, GNOME Office, etc).

Glade-Perl-0.60

Application
===========

Glade-Perl Glade-Perl-0.60

Description
===========

A Perl module that will read a Glade XML  file, build the UI and/or write
the perl source to create the UI later and handle signals. It also creates
an App and an App subclass that you can edit as well as documentation and
distribution files.

Enhancements
============

-
-

Fixes
=====
  - Documentation and dist files written for Libglade style apps as well.
  - PerlRun->save_file_from_string() allows writing undef string.
  - PerlUI->new_GtkSpinButton() bug fix for set_wrap() code.
  - PerlProject->use_Glade_Project() forces a leading '#' for 'copying'.
  - PerlSource->perl_preamble() (extra) leading '#' removed from
'copying.
  - PerlSource->dist_Makefile_PL() now uses Glade-Perl's min.
requirements
    as defaults for Makefile.PL version checks for Gtk and Gnome.
  - PerlUI->internal_pack_widget() fixed to add() Gnome::IconLists
instead
    of add_with_viewport() - thanks to René Seindal 
  - PerlUI->new_accelerator() changed to generate code that looks up the
    keyval at UI construction time so that apps are more portable.
    Also generated code will use Gtk::Gdk->keyval_from_name() in case any
    subsequent app user doesn't have a populated Gtk::Keysyms.pm (some
RPMs)
  - PerlUIExtra->new_GtkPixmapMenuItem() similarly changed.
  - PerlUIExtra->new_GnomeEntry() fixed to set history ID correctly.
    Thanks to Franco Broi for the bug report.
  - PerlSource->perl_AUTOLOAD_top() small change to generated sub
AUTOLOAD()
  - PerlSource->perl_*_top() now generate modules with initial version
    number of 0.10 (was 0.01) to make scripts handling the distribution
of
    modules more predictable - minor version now always has 2 significant
    digits and can be incremented without packing (eg. 0.10 > 0.11).
    Also %params now passed through from toplevel script to app_run()
  - New user option 1
    and PerlUI->new_signal() changed to generate code that will save all 
    the signal connection ids in a predictable way so that signals can be
    blocked and unblocked in handlers. The connection id is held in eg:
      my $id =
$forms->{'__CONNECT_ID'}{'entry1'}{'after_key_press_event'}
    and can be used like $form->{'entry1'}->signal_handler_block($id);
    and later $form->{'entry1'}->signal_handler_unblock($id);
    or $form->{'entry1'}->signal_disconnect($id);
    or $form->{'entry1'}->signal_emit($id);
    The last hash key is either 'signal' or 'after_signal' depending on
    whether the signal is connected normally or after. I have never
needed
    this functionality but someone asked for it, the costs of the changes
    are negligible and they should not affect any existing code - just 
    don't give any widget the name '__CONNECT_ID'. 
    The default (0) produces the same code as previous versions.
  - PerlProject->use_Glade_project() fixed to write missing project logo.
  - PerlSource->dist_MANIFEST_SKIP() generates file MANIFEST.SKIP such
that
    src/ProjectSIGS.pm will not be included in default MANIFEST file when

    you run 'make manifest'
  - PerlRun->write_missing_gettext_strings() produces better .pot file
  - FAQ - new Q/A about automatic installion using CPAN.pm and updated Q/A

    about accessing widgets with PerlRun->lookup_widget() new in 0.59
  - PerlUI->use_par() fixed to escape leading single quote in string
  - PerlUI->Widget_from_Proto() split into construct_widget() and 
    new_sub_widget(). This is an attempt to tidy the code a little.
  - PerlRun data fields altered to double quote default 'copying' message
    so that the \n is interpolated. Thanks to Mark W. Eichin for report.
  - PerlProject->use_Glade_project() fixed to not escape author strings
    and PerlSource->perl_preamble() to cope with the change. Also Mark :)
  - PerlSource->perl_about() fixed to pass author/description/copying
    as single-quoted literals in generated code (see above).
  - $PACKAGE, $VERSION, $AUTHOR, $DATE fields not now inherited from
    Glade::PerlRun. This was bad behaviour and broke the CPAN automatic
    updating module so each module is separately updated now.
