libgda/libgnomedb/mergeant 0.10.0 released

libgda/libgnomedb/mergeant 0.9.0 have 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, MS Access and xBase
files and ODBC data sources.
Mergeant is an end user application that makes use of libgda and
libgnomedb to allow users to easily manage their databases.

This release is the next in a series that will result in 1.0, which is
what GNOME-DB developers are already working on. For this reason, we
need users and developers to use it and report any problem/suggestion.
