ANNOUNCE: Glom 0.8.1

*** Glom

Glom is a GUI that allows you to design database table definitions and the
relationships between them. It also allows you to edit and search the data in
those tables. The design is loosely based upon FileMaker Pro, with the added 
advantage of separation between user interface and data.

Glom uses the PostgresSQL database backend but it can not edit databases
that it did not create, because it uses only a simple subset of Postgres

Here are some screenshots:

Glom is written in C++, with gtkmm, Bakery, and libgdamm.

*** Obvious/Known problems.

* You _must_ save the document, or you will not be able to use the database
  that you created/changed. It will save automatically in future.
* There is no way to administer the users.
* The User Level is not dependent on any access rights.
* The Details view is clunky, and the field-grouping feature is not done yet.
* Find doesn't work.
* There is no printing/reports.

*** Changes

glom 0.8.1:

* Details and List views: Dates, times, and numbers are now displayed 
  and parsed according to the current locale.
  (Murray Cumming, Daniel Elstner)
* Removed Design Mode - Added items to the Developer menu instead.
* Details view: The entry widgets for Date, time, and number fields now 
  have more suitable widths, so it looks nicer.
* User Level is now per-document (or per-instance) instead of per-application.
* The User Level is forced to Operator if the document is read-only.
* Do not show the help text because it's annoying.
  (Murray Cumming)
* Added internationalization support, with the following translations:
  Italian (Alberto Paro)
  German (Hendrik Brandt)
  Canadian English (Adam Weinberger)
  Brazilian Portugese (Gustavo Noronha Silva)
  Swedish (Christian Rose)
