Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

Mergeant 0.50

Mergeant is a database user and administration tool based on GNOME-DB. It allows users to easily manage any database supported by GNOME-DB.

This is a development release, the first one after the splitting of Mergeant into libmergeant and the GUI frontend, resulting in a much better architecture.
This release works pretty well with PostgreSQL, but it does not work so well for other databases. Please report any bug to http://bugzilla.ximian.com.

Changes since release 0.12.1:

  • Splitted data dictionary management to libmergeant.
  • New frontend.
