ANNOUNCE: Glom 0.8.2

*** 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 database 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 0.8.2:

* Navigation / Tables : Fixed focus bug when adding tables.
* Fields can lookup their values from a field in 
  another table via a relationship.
* When a table is marked as the default then it will be 
  opened automatically when the database is opened.
* Tables can now be renamed.
* List and Data views: Auto-increment fields are non-editable.
* Update the Data view when field editing has finished.
* Code cleanup: AddDel widget is now iterator-based.
